Craft Stamper ~ May Reminder ~ Take A Stamp



Hello Friends

I am back with a reminder for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge. I hope you have had a chance to join us with this month's theme Take A Stamp. If not that is OK because there is still time to join us.

 You can make anything your little heart desires for this challenge. As long as there is a stamp on your project somewhere. There are a few other rules you must follow to play along so hop back to the Craft Stamper Blog and have a wee read at them. There is a wonderful prize package you can win. A set of 6 vintage embossing glitters in a case, and a lovely lace stamp from our sponsor WOW!.

I made this distressed jar for my project today! I LOVE it! I used this lovely Unity stamp called Within Beauty.  I have been saving empty jars forever so I wanted to start making things with them. This is such an easy project to make. All you do is paint the jar with acrylic paint. I used two coats of this lovely duck egg blue. Let it dry completely, I left mine over night. Then I took my archival ink and stamped it. Next I took a nail file and distressed some of the areas. Finally I tied some jute around the top to finish.

 How easy is that?? You really can't mess this one up! So feel free to have a go at painting your own jars they turn out so pretty.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great weekend :)
