My a-MAZE-balls Hat!
Happy November and welcome to our swap with 7 Dots Studio! It's Amy here today, to share a project with colors, Viva Las VegaStamps!, 7 Dots Studio papers, and textures I just love.
For this project, I started with a page of paper from 7 Dots Studio's Dreamer collection, "Sweet Dreams.". Because the paper already has lovely texture, I grabbed my paints, added a patch of acrylic iridescent green and some splashes of pink (from Folk Art/Plaid), and some splashes of Walnut Distress stain, and black Mix'd Media Inx re-inker (Clearsnap). When the paint dried, I grabbed the Lace Background Stamp (I ordered mine unmounted, and cut them into individual strips), and layered them horizontally across the page....creating even more textural eye candy. I also stamped the background randomly and at different angles, using the French Writing background , Stars 2 x 2 1/4, Bullet Hole, and Worn Clockface <===(my go to, on almost every project) Stamps.
When I finished my background, I began layering up 7 Dots Studio papers from the Messy Head, Domestic Goddess, and Dreamer collections. I added them in torn strips, and then layered on some stickers from the Domestic Goddess collection, as well.
When it came time to embellish, I used this gorgeous UmWowStudio feather, and stamped with Momento Ink in Tuxedo Black with just the hair portion of the New Age Lady With Hair stamp, and embossed with the Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder....for some fun, natural, and wavy texture.
I finished off my project with layers of embellishment, and a title worthy of the hand- crocheted hat my daughter had made for my birthday (the tail reaches to my waist). The a-MAZE-balls stamp was a perfect sentiment for the love of my warm and fuzzy hat, and formed the perfect title with alpha stickers from 7 Dots Studio's Domestic Goddess collection.
