Today all of my little girl clothing designer dreams came true. I got to play with the Beloved Society paper dolls stamp set in my journaling bible! They’re so fun because they’re so customizable! You can create a gal to look like you, your best friend, or someone you’d like to pray for in the margins of your bible. Or really any other woman on the planet. Seriously, endless possibilities.
So today I’m going to show you how I created this gal’s blouse using Neocolor II crayons!
I chose a color scheme of pinks and bluish purples and simply scribbled them on a piece of white paper. I colored an area large enough to stamp a few blouses so I’d have options. We need our options, right ladies?!
Then I swept a wet paint brush over the water soluble scribbles in order to activate the pigment.
How fun are those watery swirls?!
I let the piece dry and stamped the “blank” blouse stamp on top of the dried pigment three times. I cut them out and dressed this gal in my favorite of the three.
I would need to use that white paper one more time after I had a little stamping mishap. Let’s just say this gal had an unfortunate 5 o’clock shadow when I stamped her directly onto my bible page. I used a Faber Castell brush pen to color her face and neck and watercolors for her hair. I would recommend using a waterproof ink pad if you plan to try something similar. I did not and the markers and watercolors I used moved the black ink around a bit.
I used some of those same colors for the remainder of my page-in the tabs, art marks and washi tape- and voila!
I can’t wait to see what you dream up with these fun stamps!
