ATC Swaps - Theme: Body Parts

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, July 03, 2015
Hi all!  I thought I'd share a few photos from my latest crafting adventure.

I'm participating in an ATC Swap this month and the theme is "Body Parts"... hmm...

So, I have been wanting this particular Legs stamp set from Dylusions by Dyan Reaveley for a while now and this was the perfect excuse to go ahead and buy it!  I got it in the mail today and couldn't wait to ink it up!  With the help of my MISTI, I got great dark black images.

The idea in my head was a polaroid photo featuring the body parts.  A pack of flowers jumped into my cart at the craft store today, so I already had the colors in mind, that made picking the paper pretty easy.  I did start by stamping the legs on plain white cardstock, but thought it looked too bland, so I tried again using patterned paper.

Then, I decided that it needed a sentiment down in that blank white corner.  So, I stamped up a simple "Wow!" and cut it out to see what it looked like.  I liked it, so I actually stamped it directly onto the polaroid frame on each card.

Then, I decided since I had 8 great leg stamps to choose from that I would use a few of them on the set and mix up the colors a bit.  I ended up using 5 different legs.

Once all the legs were colored and the layers glued down, I thought they looked great.. but they might be missing a little something.  So I added a strip of bling to the top.

And DONE!  I'm really thrilled with this set of cards, and I hate to part with them for the swap!  But, I'm also excited to see what everyone else came up with for "Body Parts"!

Hope you enjoyed a short trip through my crafting process!
Thanks for stopping by!
