Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy
Sunday to you
all! As ever, thank you all for your fabby entries to last weeks backgrounds
challenge - it was great to see some new peeps entering too! The theme this week is all about getting some dimension into your art... and it is DEPTH & 3D. *I have an earworm already, Right Said Fred have a LOT to answer for* You can interpret the challenge how you like: make a really dimensional creation, add in dimension and depth and all things 3dness to your art, build up your layers...
choice, it be yours! To
join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND
some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!* and then hop 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 30th August 2014.
So! My entry this week is actually the sample I made in class yesterday at Daisy's Jewels & Crafts in Coventry. We had a lovely day getting all painty and messy... and because this is a class sample, I won't go into to great a detail on how I made it.
I can tell you that I used Tim's Harlequin Border and some Martha Stewart punches to make some depth on my canvas... added in some 3d texture with a stencil and the paints I used were Adirondack Juniper (quite possibly my FAVE colour ever), Lake Mist and Espresso Dabbers. I love Dabbers because of their chalky and creamy finish... very touchable.
The flowers are Ancient Copper and the embellies were treated to some Treasure Gold. The stamping... the little diamonds are from Catslife Press (I love these stamps and have had them for about 217 years) and the sentiment is from The Artistic Stamper.
Today I am away back to Daisy's for an Exploding Box day... in complete contrast to yesterday, today will be clean (yeah, who am I kidding) and neat (like I said... kidding?) Oh and a heads up... I will be popping a new date for visiting Daisy's onto Facebook and on here later on... more than likely be a weekend in October ... and... it will be... Melt Pot! Hurrah! I shall away now, sleeps to be had and all that.... Thanks for looking, have a great Sunday! TTFN
