Hello all you “Rad Stampers”! This Custom Tee Rad Stamper design was made possible by the Custom Tee Photopolymer stamp set and a Card Sketch I came across on Pinterest a while ago [I [heart] sketches August 2011]. Yes……photopolymer stamps are easy to cut apart and put back together in many ways. Love it! I took “Rad Dad” and “Happy Stamper” and combined them to create this fun design for all my “Rad Stamper” friends. I even added a bit of bedazzling. Lol!
BASE: While I’ll be sad to see the Custom Tee stamp set and In-Color Watermelon Wonder retire I am looking forward to all the new stuff coming in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Woohoo! The base starts with Watermelon Wonder topped with layers of Basic Black and the Micro-Mini-Dots design from Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.
FOCAL POINT: The smaller rectangles on a diagonal were hard for me but the card sketch allowed me to let loose and mix things up a bit. Lol! I am very Type-A and this was outside my comfort zone but I did it. The smaller Basic Black rectangle I applied one of my go techniques for adding subtle texture – Faux Suede Technique. Then my “a-ha” moment was stamping “Rad Stamper” on the entire Watermelon Wonder rectangle to create a subtle background. Which tied everything together. Sweet!
SENTIMENT TEE: By cutting the stamps apart and piecing them back together I created this fun sentiment I used two ways. Because the Rhinestones weren’t enough “sparkle” I also color coordinated heat embossed the words. [How to–lightly tap onto a Versamark ink pad then stamping onto your coordinating color and then stamping onto your paper. Then sprinkle with Clear Emboss Powder and heat until glossy. Sweet, sweet, sweet!]
I hope you enjoyed today’s fun share. Thank you very much for stopping by. I hope you’ll come back soon. Have a great stamping day!
