Stamping Platform

  1. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the gorgeous woman from the Beautiful Soul Clear Polymer Stamp Set onto white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper. Set aside the label version for now.
  2. Color the image with Copic markers.
  3. Use magnets to secure the image panel to the base of the stamping platform.
  4. Remove all the stamps from the acetate on the Beautiful Soul Clear Polymer Stamp Set and use the printed acetate to position the "Big Dreams" sentiment onto a section of hair.
  5. Place the "big dreams" sentiment facedown on top of the acetate, press the platform's lid onto the back of the stamp, and lift.
  6. Repeat Steps #5 with the "vivid imaginations" and the "kind hearted" sentiments.
  7. Remove the printed acetate from the platform.
  8. Ink all three sentiment with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and heat set.
  9. Realize that the "kind hearted" sentiment was stamped very close to the right edge of the hair, so remedy the situation by adding Copic colored hair extensions.
  10. Fussy-cut the label paper version of the e Beautiful Soul woman and place it over its counterpart on the image panel.
  11. Brush or sponge Blue Lagoon Elements Ink by Lavinia Stamps over the masked image.
  12. Use Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink to stamp the butterfly from the Nothing to Wear Clear Polymer Stamp Set and the splotches from the 99% Chance of Wine Clear Polymer Stamp Set as shown. Retrospectively, I should have measured the image panel before stamping the butterflies and the splotches as I ended up having to trim them off. Oops.
  13. Remove the mask.
  14. Use pink chalk pencil to add a touch of blush to her cheeks, her ear lobe, and her shoulder. 
  15. Adhere a small black pearl was added to her ear lobe as an earring.
  16. Trim the image panel to 5.25" x 4", edge, with a black marker, then adhered to a black A2 card.
