Hello there, I know I've been pretty quiet here on the blog lately, but things have been busy I've not really been in the mood for blogging. The same questions I ask myself all the time. But, I'm back today -- thanks to the commitment yesterday to the Whatevers to finally blog.
But as a bonus, due to my silence I thought I'd give you a little tutorial -- a little thanks to you for coming back to see what I've got going on.
Last week I stopped by Joann Fabrics and found this super cool CLEAR silicone iPhone case. It was on clearance for $5.00 -- and I immediately had an idea pop into my head. This would be perfect to make a custom case for my phone using my Art Gone Wild! Stamps. It was easy peasy -- and here's how I did it.
First I cut a piece of watercolor paper the SAME SIZE as the interchangeable designs included with the case and used the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to chomp a 1/4" corner on each corner of the watercolor paper.
I also made sure it fit inside the case, since the paper was a bit thicker than the included design I had to do a little trimming to make it fit.
When it did fit, I used a pencil to trace the camera hole on the case.
I used a combination of an x-acto blade and fussy cutting scissors to cut the camera hole out.
Then I stamped my black eyed susan stamp and Archival Ink to stamp my favorite flower on the watercolor paper. To add color I used my watercolor paints to paint the design -- but you could use any thing to color the design.
The result is a super beautiful custom iPhone case that i can swap out with any of my favorite stamps or designs from my Just Add Color line!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
