Life Imitating Craft

I took the Altenew Academy Class Stamps Meet Scrapbook. It gave me the motivation to scrap this photograph I took after reenacting a stamp from Papertrey Ink's Studio Style with my collection of PTI ribbons (in Ocean Tides). The stamped images on Shrinky Dink shown in the picture are used on the page after being colored in with colored pencils.

The page is stamped with Papertrey Ink's Fine Linen ink using a stamp Altenew's Coffee with a Splash set. The acetate butterfly is from Altenew's Reflection kit.

I love all the different textures of the ribbons (twill, stitched, satin, grosgrain, swiss dot), the gold watercolor, gold embossing powder, gold Thickers, Altenew's Alphabet Stickers, and the matte shrinky dink embellishments.

The "My soul is fed with stamps and ink" sentiment comes from Aletnew's Crafty Life stamp set. "I [heart] paper crafting" and "Do something creative every day" come from PTI's Studio Style.

I stamped the largest frame from Altenew's Framed set on PTI's Linen Cardstock with Versamark Ink and the applied Ranger's Super Fine Detailed Gold Embossing Powder and then brushed it in places for a more distressed look before heating it. Then I painted it with #90 Gold Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor before fussy cutting it.

The butterfly and ribbon Shrinky Dink embellsihments were attached by stitching them to the page with a 2ply handspun bombyx silk embroidery thread.
