Remember cootie catchers?

I made this one for a swap on swap-bot.com.

The background design is a fabulous medallion stamp from Holly Berry House stamped in bleach on black paper. Then I took color into the design using a variety of pigment stamps, blending as I went. Finally, I stenciled the numerals lightly using Golden Titan Buff liquid acrylic paint.

I used the same technique with this fabulous little winged heart stamp for the flaps on the interior. Under each flap, I wrote two "fortunes" that are really words of encouragement like "Follow your bliss" or "Trust your instincts."

I hope my swap partner likes it. I had a lot of fun making it and may make a few more now that I remember how.
