These 3-D safari cards are made from Taylored Artwork stamps. I taught this class at StampWorks, a wonderful local stamp store in Chandler, AZ and had the distinct honor of meeting Jim Taylor, the artist behind the images and also the owner of Taylored Artwork. Quite by accident, he came to the store while my class was in session. We had a great time in the class and it became even more fantastic when Mr. Taylor brought in a huge basket of over 100.00 worth of Taylored Artwork stamps that we GAVE AWAY in a drawing. One stamper went home VERY happy! Thank you Jim Taylor!!!
Now "how to": Images were stamped multiple times (Marvy Matchables black ink) then cut out and layered. Some layered pieces were molded and shaped by simply pulling the piece between my thumbnail and middle finger nail; the cardstock begins to curl with each pull. The pieces were attached with foam mounting tape to give them dimension. Colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol blending fluid. Backgrounds were made with cuttlebug embossing folders. NOTE: The horizontal lines on the base cardstock of the elephant card were made with a Scor-Pal www.scor-pal.com(my newest and now favorite tool!!).
At this time, I'm unable to locate a website for Taylored Artwork (I believe they no longer have one). His fabulous stamp line is avaiable from StampWorks 480-899-5958.
Thanks for looking!
