The Twelve Days of Christmas
The book is 4" x 4" and is by Making Memories. The pages were white until I had at them with acrylic paint!
All "twelve days" stamps used in the book are by Claudia Rose. I purchased them as a set, but they can also be had individually. You can get them unmounted for 50% off of the mounted price! I was glad I had the unmounted ones as using them on acrylic blocks made it much easier to position the stamp.
|cover||I painted the border around the title with acrylic paint. The thing I love about acrylic paint is how you can add a dark color over top of another dark color -- it is hard to do this with ink unless you emboss. Paints used are cranberry and evergreen by Making Memories.|
|1||I used Prismacolor pencils to color all the images in the book.|
|2-3||I love the "turtle doves"!|
|4-5||The polka dot stamp is by Magenta -- I "inked" it with cranberry acrylic paint -- I put the paint on the stamp with a foam brush. The gold paint is by Plaid. One of the reasons I convinced myself to get this set is that I used the "calling birds" stamp to make cards with our cell phone number on them when we first got our cell phones!|
|6-7||An alternate use for the "goose-a-laying" stamp is to tell someone to "get some rest"!|
|8-9||Lots of masking going on here...|
|10-11||Even MORE masking going on here...I also had to make the font smaller!|
|12||STILL MORE masking going on here...and I had to make the font really really small!|
