If you build it...


will they come???

 'they' being my art elves that peer over my shoulder and study what I have gathered on my work table.

I wanted to be able to stamp as well as stencil so I got out my fun foam and traced through a stencil.

 I didn't totally stick to the plan as I do have to be able to cut this out.

  The cutting turned out to be surprisingly easy.

To better position the stamps I began to cut my foam board to echo the shapes.  The foam is sticky backed.


This really is easy peasy and lots of fun.  Not to mention slightly addictive!


I was a bit worried that the foam might be too thin so I just stuck two pieces of foam together and then cut shapes.

I hope the elves approve and show up for the test drive!  ;) ;)

Very cool! That foam stuff is easy and it holds up pretty good, too. Can't wait to see what you create with them.
