CC2C*1: Custom Foam Stamps


And the Moon was made of Gold: Rickie Lee Jones

This is the first challenge from the second volume of Tim Holtz book Compendium of Curiosities. Linda at Studio L3 is hosting the challenges and this week Simon Says is the generous sponsor.

The technique comes from the above mentioned book from page 66.

I think I have added my own twist on the technique as using the stamping as a base for a fabric collage. (The foam I used had this wonderful texture on it, which I think is lush. It creates a sort of kiss stamping technique all by itself!) As you can see the title came from a song written by Rickie Lee Jones- she certainly performed the song I am assuming she wrote it as well? Apologies if I have this wrong.

Love your take on this Laura, the colours in the fabrics, the textures and the design makes me inspired and want to play with the sewing machine again.
