Yesterday I was at a Craft fair where I was lucky to meet Jill fromThe Stampman and watch her fantastic demonstrations. I also saw her beautiful frames which inspired me to try this small canvas. You can see one of her gorgeous frames here
The base which is about 5 x 7 inches was given a couple of layers of gesso.
The corner is layers of tissue, stuck down with PVA.
Shading on the background is distress inks . I used a key mask which shows up very pale and the rose stamp here.
Then I started to add bits and pieces, some fragments and small beads.
Loads of silver embossing power, which I heated between layers. A metal filigree round and an old earing at its centre.
The stamped image in the frame is quite old, not sure who by. She is coloured with a pale pink water colour.
The frame is from Crafty Individuals.
I will be entering this in a couple of challenges.
The Stampman Challenge- The theme is Vintage
Simon Says Stamp and Show- The theme is Anything goes.
Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
