Sneak Peek: 1st draft of flower template (for gluepen embossing/embroidery/paper piercing)


Have You ever wanted to make your own images to work with?
Or your own stamp?


Apparently, you can have a stamp made for you from any drawing. Wouldn't it be fun to have one made of your favourite kid's drawing? This doodle still needs a fair bit of tweaking, but I'm liking the new process I'm experimenting with for working with doodles & the scanner. I'll share the details in a tutorial when theres time--in case it might be useful to you. This image is destined to become a template for glue pen embossing/embroidery/paper piercing. Thinkin' I might try having a stamp made of a couple of sketches...

Image Details: a doodle scanned printed and done in glue pen embossing. Painted with Stampin Up inks: Cool Caribbean, Tempting turquoise, Blue Bayou, Basic Grey, Certain Celery, Gable Green. (Love that Aquapainter almost as much as glue pens!)

Thanks for stopping by! :0)

YOU should be submitting your drawings to places like Impression-Obsession, Whipper Snapper, etc. that is, if you don't start your own company!!! TFS
