Freedom To Roam In The Wild

Hello Everyone
A slight change of mood with this post! Anyone who knows me would no doubt agree that the stamp I used in the previous post is very much within my comfort zone.  Well let me tell you that the stamp I am sharing in this post, although a stunning set from Crafty Individuals,  it didn’t quite fit within my comfort zone of shabbily vintage.  Then again, that is the fun of playing because once I started to ink up, I really did have fun.
It has taken me a bit longer than is normal for me to create any samples but finally I have some projects to share using Elements set CI-390. Also, with the scorching heat (yes, even in Scotland) it seemed an appropriate time to share the first projects, two tags.
I chose a neutral colour palette for both tags and on both I tried to bring a mix of textures, textures and elements which brought to mind the natural world.DIGITAL CAMERAI wonder if I will ever tire of stamping onto fabric, possibly not.  Scrap cotton, yes it is that re-cycled curtain backing making an appearance once again, is what I stamped directly onto.   This is quite a detailed stamp yet none of the detail was lost by stamping directly onto the cotton, of course it does depend on the weave of the fabric.   The little scrap above was a piece of fabric which was leftover from a rusting session.  The diluted mix of rusting powder and vinegar ran down the fabric leaving a rusty colour without the heavy texture, it was purely by accident this happened.  Then I  simply stamped the sentiment.
I used one of the CI crackle stamps  to form the background before layering.I was pleased with the effect on the corrugated cardboard.
DIGITAL CAMERAA little detail photograph of the bottom edge of the tag where I assembled a fragment of corrugated cardboard, a wooden bead and some trim.DIGITAL CAMERAThe second tag once more sees me working with the same colour palette.   There is repetition of the stamped crackle background, layering and the elephant collage stamped onto fabric. DIGITAL CAMERA
Taking a close study of the main stamped image you can see there is such detail in this stamp.  The variation in colour is where I have overlayed mica, this is laminate mica sheets not mica flakes.
You can possibly see the layers and mix of textures.
DIGITAL CAMERAAnother piece of the corrugated cardboard has been used on this tag and I created a bow from a fibre which I can honestly say, I have no idea where it came from but I liked the colour and texture!  Do you see the crochet style lace I layered beneath the corrugated cardboard, well I snipped into this to give a frayed appearance more suited to the theme.  It actually reminds me of the very tip of a giraffe or elephant’s tail.
DIGITAL CAMERAIt is a well thought out Elements set with Jean and Malcolm including sentiments such as this and also the one on the first tag and some more.
DIGITAL CAMERAThank You for your visit.
Have a lovely weekend, maybe make it a creative one!

    Fabulous adaptation to your fab vintage style Lynne. Love the stamps and the elements you have used create an aged African theme, from the rust on the fabric and fringed trumps to the painted fragments.

    These two stamps caught my eye on the CI email, and they are fabulous! I love how you’ve used them here with the neutral colours, and the fibres and textures are perfect. I hope you’re coping with the heat, I love it but I just don’t want to go to work in it, lol.

    Take care
