paint brush = le pinceau

Hey there!  This week I’m playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  It’s my new thing!  The challenge is: Stamping on anything but plain paper.  I think I got that covered in my French Word tag below.  🙂


This time I thought I’d show you a bit of my process in making this tag.


I started with the Claudine Hellmuth Studio sticky-back canvas in white and cut it to the size of a Ranger #8 manilla tag.  I then painted the canvas surface with Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints and when the canvas was dry I applied it to the #8 tag.


Here I did a laser photocopy transfer, using one of my own Paris photos, on top of the painted tag.


And now let’s start stamping on this photo transfer on painted canvas surface, lol!  I used Jet Black StazOn ink with the Jenni Bowlin Ink Spots stamp.


And here’s a detail of the paint brush and title on the My Mind’s Eye pattern paper.  I used the same StazOn ink to stamp the brush and painted a sweeping of gesso to write the title on.   I also used foam tape to raise up this hand cut patterned paper shape.


As a finishing touch, I edged the top and sides of the tag with gold pigment ink.


Another inky, painty, transfery, canvasy detail.
