OK–I knew I’d get some attention with that title!! But really, it’s all about the hats!! I’m finding it a bit of a mission in my crafting to put as many different hats on this image as I can!! She’s just so much more fun with a hat on!!
Yes, I am still goofy over the image transfer technique I learned over the Summer from Claudine Hellmuth’s Technique Toolbox online class! It is such a fun technique, so versatile and so very easy! When I was asked to make a card for someone whose profession is as a Nurse, I knew exactly what I was going to do..Put a Hat on Her!!
Supplies I Used:
- Woman & Script Images courtesy of Claudine Hellmuth from her online Technique Toolbox course
- Stamps: Dr. Coffin’s Apothecary (Oxford Impressions/Austen Gallery) & Friendly Greetings (Hero Arts)
- Manilla Stock, Decorative & Glitter Papers (Stampin’ Up), Vellum
- Omni-Gel Multi-Medium, Dimensional Magic, Double-Back Tape, 3D Dots, Laser Printed Image, Heat Tool
- Archival Ink (Ranger), Distress Inks (Tim Holtz), Stampin’ Up Dye Ink, Studio Acrylic Paint, Paintbrush, Distresser, Ink Blending Tool, Tissue Tape-Tim Holtz/Idea-ology, Mini-Heart Punch
The script and woman laser print images are transferred onto my manilla stock with Omni-Gel Multi Medium. Once I exposed the script and woman images, I dried with my heat tool and lightly inked over with Tea Dye DI and my ink blending tool. I took the distresser to the edges and inked with Vintage Photo DI. It looks like I found a vintage year book photo…..
I LOVE THIS HAT!!! It’s a mini version of a real, old-fashioned, folded-paper Nurse’s hat!! I found the folding instructions online and used plain vellum cut down to this mini size. Once I folded my mini-nurse’s hat, I painted it with Painterly Pink Studio Acrylic paint and dried with my heat tool. Then I added the strip of Tissue Tape and punched out a red glitter paper heart! PERFECT!!
To add a little more oomph, I applied a thin layer of Dimensional Magic over just her glasses.
And who wouldn’t want to get a prescription like this? This is a small piece of decorative notebook style paper from Stampin’ Up that I distressed a little with Tea Dye DI and my ink blending tool. The sentiment, from Friendly Greetings/Hero Arts, is stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink and the RX stamp is from Dr. Coffin’s Apothecary that I stamped with Real Red Dye Ink from Stampin’ Up.
Now, who wouldn’t want good medicine like this? I’ll take a Great B-Day RX any day!!
Cheers and a Happy Friday to you all!! Thank you all sooo much for stopping by and have an Artsy Fartsy weekend!! XOXO-Shari
