Altered Globe


Hey all!! DeeDee here!! So excited to be back for a 2nd term with the FABULOUS Viva Las Vegastamps! and their GORGEOUS red rubber assortment!

Today I have an altered globe to show you featuring TONS of my favorite VLVS! Stamps.. and if you come back to visit me again in 2 weeks I'll have a short video to show you on using cling rubber to mount your favorite stamps on :)

Onto the project!

Here is the piece as a whole:


and here are my favorite three sections of the globe.. all featuring the most amazing VLVS! Stamps!
The celebrate section uses the Jester with Arms UP stamp, the Vintage Bicycle stamp and the Ferris Wheel stamp

The fly section focuses on the balloon stamp  which was embossed with smooth black embossing powder and colored with a blue prisma color marker

and right next to the fly section is the brave the storm section using the Vintage Umbrella Man stamp which I first stamped on tissue paper and then glued down with watered down elmer's glue.. to REVERSE THE IMAGE! Such a super easy peasy and wonderful technique!

The base of the globe was made out of manila folders that were inked with mustard seed and vintage photo distress ink.. from there I just did tons of stamping, doodling and inking to create each section :)

Can't wait to see you next time! -DeeDee
