some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a link to
the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you. If you
haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or
by emailing a small res.pic to me. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 5th July 2014.
My entry this week is actually a show sample from my last tellybox show that I haven't got around to blogging... better late than never. I had lots of painty fun making this wall hanging. The paints are Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paints, I used Spiced Raspberry mixed with Vanilla and brayered the paints onto an MDF board. Once I was happy with the background painting, I added some Spiced Raspberry to Clear Texture Paste and popped this through Dina's Plastic Canvas Stencil. Once dried, I set about adding some light stamping using Dina's Textures stamp set. I used Vanilla to stamp with so the background is nice and splotchy.
I make no secret of my lurve of butterflies and I went a little... erm... bonkers (!) with the butterflies on this piece... all stamped onto patterned papers and coloured with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink (you can see I missed colouring the underside of a wing... oops!) The woodie branch is from the garden, I was cutting back a camellia and the twigs are really sturdy, ideal for adding to something crafty. I tied string through the holes in the MDF and wrapped it around the twig to fasten it in place. A wee sentiment to finish and voila, one painty project.
That's all from me for now... I am taking a couple of weeks off to recharge the old batteries so if I am a little quiet, it is probs because I am curled up with a good book :O) *either that or up to mischief!* Thanks for looking, have a goodly week! TTFN
