A Bit of Earth By Lynne Moncrieff



Today I am sharing a project with Character Constructions stamps.

This is from one of Catherine Moore's earlier collections but her stamps are truly timeless.
I selected this set because I knew it would work with my eco dyed papers. The text stamps "Might I have a bit of earth" captivates me, such a small stamp but I feel it has so much to say.

If you do not Eco Dye, don't let that prevent you from creating a similar style of project. You could substitute with sprays or for the earthy tones I worked with, I would suggest Infusions.

Adhere eco dyed rice paper to MDF 4" Round then repeatedly stamp "Might I have a bit of earth?" with Potting Soil ink. Scribble Distress Crayon onto this panel, blending with baby wipe or brush dipped into water, do not saturate. Swipe edges of Round with ink pad.

Onto another piece of eco dyed rice paper, stamp larger image from the set. Stamp again, a few times. Tear small elements and layer to the main image. Adhere this to the MDF Round.

Ink up the text stamp, stamping repeatedly onto the clothes peg. You can go two ways with this, perfectly stamping the text once onto the peg or the way I prefer, repeatedly stamping and not caring that words overlap, I like the earthy essence this brings overall.

Before adding all the wee bits of this 'n' that, gather lengths of eco dyed textiles, I worked with three pieces.  Slip through the clothes peg at the upper edge. Adhere the MDF Round, trapping a piece of dyed jute and another piece of dyed calico.

Until next time,
