Hoping this post finds everyone well! We've found ourselves "relaxing" in the path of several tornado producing storms, but truthfully they travelled on up toward our home as they passed by. The destruction occurred north of us here in TN and we're thinking of those folks & those in Alabama and Mississippi who seemed to bear the brunt of the damage.
Today I am using the Smeared Ink unmounted rubber stamp set with Jack. I started with a base from Halcraft naturals card bases & stamped Jack & the sentiments on another color of it. I grabbed various patterned papers & stamped him on them, then started cutting & piecing together until he was feeling dapper. The body of the box & it's flap are pieced as well as the star & crank. Jack's shirt, collar & hat are also pieced. He's trimmed & lifted from the surface with popdots for dimension. The sentiments are a combination of four from the set. Hope you enjoy him!
