A New Blue Updo

Andrea Ockey Parr got rid of her winter blues by giving this stamp a new hairdo.  In this stamping tutorial Andrea will demonstrate how she created this lovely background using all 100 Proof Press stamps!  This is one that I really want to try.  I hope it inspires you as well - enjoy.

The girl stamp, called Flowers for Hair is stunning.  I stamped her on flesh-colored card stock, then fussy-cut around her and added pink chalk to her cheeks.  I trimmed down her stamped hair and glued yarn strands to her head instead, which totally changed the look of the image.  I also made a dress for her.

For the card's background, I started with white card stock and heat-embossed two stamped images on top of each other (Balance Sheet in black, and Large Handwriting, placed vertically in blue).  On top of that, I stamped Mode de Paris Buttons in green and smeared them with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

I followed up with more inking.  I smeared Salty Ocean Distress Ink down the vertical handwriting lines and smudged some Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the background along with some Fresh Green Colorbox Ink.

I topped it off with this Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil cover plate die, which I cut a few sections out of and added ink to.   I also glued some of the cut-out pieces back in.

I nestled my blue-haired friend behind the cover plate die, added the Beautiful You sentiment and was done!
