Insta Album

Free Spirit Insta Album

Hi there, Karen here!

Today I’m sharing an Altered Insta Album created with Rita’s Cowboy Boot Artfoamie stamp. I had the most fun with this stamp.  It measures 6 x 4 and perfect for large projects.  I coordinated this fun stamp with some oxide inks, flowers, and dyed ribbon. The album measures 11 x 6.

I began the altering of this album by inking some watercolor paper with various oxide inks and water. I used oxide colors: worn lipstick, wilted violet, broken china, and fossilized amber.  These colors compliment each other well.

 

I inked (2) 12 x 12 sheets of watercolor paper. I also used the remaining loose ink to coordinate ribbon for this album. I heat set the inked watercolor papers and continued adding inks until I was happy with the end result.

 

 

I inked the Cowboy Boot foam stamp with black ink and stamped onto the inked watercolor paper. I love how crisp the stamping came out. The ink colors in the background peek through perfectly. I stamped the boot onto the second ink watercolor paper and then cut the boots out using scissors.

 

 

I trimmed one of the inked watercolor papers down to layering size and transferred a script to the watercolor paper using a stencil, Copic marker, and air compressor. I also tapped some broken china oxide ink onto the inked watercolor paper to accent the color combination. I used a heat tool to heat set the additional ink on the watercolor paper.

 

Layer the inked watercolor paper onto coordinating cardstock. Add ribbon and metal charm to the bottom of the watercolor and cardstock layer, and adhere to the front of the Insta Album. Add stamped cowboy boots to the album.

 

 I added coordinating flowers, heart pearl pins, Free Spirit charm and ribbon to the front of the Insta Album.

 

I absolutely loved working with the cowboy boot stamp. The 4 x 6 size of the boot was ideal for this altered project. The stamp that I used for this project can be found using the link below:
