H is for...

Hi bloggers, and welcome to my little corner of the Blogiverse. Today, gentle visitor, I am showing my entry into the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge (details here). This fortnight's letter is H - for Hat.  On the Head, of a rather Handsome chap.



The Man In a Hat stamp is one I made myself (with my Imagepac) from a royalty-free image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps, stamped onto the reverse side of a piece of Centura Pearl card.  I masked the image with a Post-It, stamped the letter "h" and masked that off as well, then stamped the newsprint (Headlines!) (stamp from Creative Expressions).  I removed the mask from the "h" but left the mask over the Hat Man until after I'd coloured the background with Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw DI's.    And that's it!  Hope you like it - and thanks for coming by!

How clever are you making that stamp! It is fabulous and the beauty of it is that it is unique (unless you make more and sell them) to you! Hugs, Anne x

What a fabulous stamp you created, bravo!! Great minds think alike, I too went with H for hat, nut mine isn't near as sophisticated as yours :0) Mo

At first, I thought you had chosen "hat" ;-)
But Handsome chap works too. We need to see the definition somewhere though to enter the challeng ;)
Thanks for playing with us at the Craft Barn
