The first two shuttles I enhanced went to Lace-lovin' Librarian Diane some time ago. I didn't think to take pictures of them, but so here they are using the picture off Diane's blog.
Since they were so pretty, I wanted to make another similar to that one for Wendy. Before I mailed it I decided to test tat with it ....... When I tat I use the pointed tip alot. Sadly I determined that the paper on this tip did not play nice, so it couldn't be mailed. (I think you maybe able to see it on the photo below.) Did the one I sent you do that, Diane?
Pretty but not practical.
Okay so onto a different idea. I couldn't find printed tissue paper in my small town, but I did find white. In a former crafting life I was a stamper, so I took a permanent black ink pad & markers, a small flower stamp and added it to the paper. I also stamped tissue paper for the back, but that will have to wait until Wendy gets it to be revealed. Then I decoupaged the stamped paper onto the shuttle. I wet sanded it, very gently (my first attempt sanded off the paper) to make it smooth. I could still see the brush strokes, which I wasn't happy about but didn't know how to change that.
So here's mine, Wendy, and it's on it's way to you.
As soon as all my Holiday projects are done, I'm going to have to make me a couple of these for my own use.Sorry for the bad quality pictures, they were taken with my cellphone in low light.
