Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!
I have a fun project for you today, in fact, today’s project is the
Daisy Flip Flops
We have all seen the cute & fun flip flops with silk flowers attached… (which can also be fun to make) … but what about stamping on Fun Foam to make your own flowers to decorate your flip flops? That is exactly what I did here! 🙂
I don’t know if you have had a chance to stamp on Fun Foam … it is super easy to stamp on, holds color nicely … and FUN! I found these Flip Flops and Fun Foam at Michael’s but I am sure they can be found at any local craft store.
First a mention about ink … you knew I would have to say something about ink, didn’t you? 🙂 I would suggest using pigment ink, which is what I used for these flip-flops. Dye inks bleed together and the stamp image detail did not remain sharp.
The big secret to stamping on Fun Foam…. when your stamped images are dry, spray with a fixative. I used a fixative with a matte finish from Krylon
. I like the matte finish because it does not change the original look of your stamped image. By “fixing” your stamped image with fixative, the ink will no longer smear and the stamped Fun Foam becomes waterproof … a good thing if you plan on wearing your flip-flops to the beach or by the pool. 🙂
