You will need:

Stamps

Stamping ink pads

Babywipes (for cleaning)

Plain canvas

 

Then:

Then after dipping your stamp in your first colour, stamp all over.

Clean the stamp (baby wipes are excellent for this), then select your next colour, coat the stamp and stamp all over.

Continue this process until you have covered the whole canvas.

Leave to dry et voila you’ve created a masterpiece!

Although each fox/moustache didn’t turn out perfectly, I rather like the effect. Certainly shows it’s  home-made!

Canvas pictures

 

                 

Take one blank canvas, a rubber stamp and a selection of inks. Then after dipping your stamp in your first colour, stamp all over. Clean the stamp, then select your next colour, coat the stamp and stamp all over. Continue this process until you have covered the whole canvas, or the border.

I printed out outlines of the squirrels and rabbit (drawing is not really my forte!). Cut them out, drew round them on the plain side of my material, then cut them out.

I played around with the shapes on my two canvases, until I was happy with their positioning. I then stuck them onto the canvas with PVA glue (be sure to smooth them down as the glue can cause the material to crease).

Lastly I glued my buttons on with the same glue.

Time- approximately 1 hour for both canvases.
Cost- £5 for 4 canvases (the range). Stamps and ink free (courtesy of my friend). £8.80 for large squares of material. £2 for 12 buttons. Material and buttons from my local haberdashery.

I think these are rather cute, Cath Kidston-esque!

Crafty house gift

 Felt ‘loving home’ picture, given as a house warming present. This was so simple to do.
I took two pieces of felt (one black, one polka dot) and drew a simple house and heart outline on the black. I then cut out the images and placed them on to the pink. Placed them in a frame and voila!
Time- less than 10 minutes
Cost- approx £1.50 for the felt, old frame, already owned.
