'Anything Goes', is the new theme. over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges .All we ask is that stamping must be a main feature on what you make. Please pop over for all the details and see what my design team sisters have been making.
The words under the stamped image read-- Silences make the real conversations between friends. This is a Paperbag Studio Image, stamped onto a piece of art canvas using Archival ink, edged with Vintage photo distress ink. I also stamped the image onto tissue, this was partially layered on to the original ,to give a bit of added texture .
The base layer of this project, you will see it in the next photo was a piece of chocolate covered card, dry embossed through a leaf design folder, before swiping over with Picket fence distress stains.
The next layer started off as a piece of corrugated card. Painted with Linen coloured acrylic paint, then painted with brush- fulls of Old paper distress stain, swipes of Picket fence and some watered down Bundled sage.
A bit random French script stamping
Next came the stenciling, when the grunge medium had dried off,I added the main image and re stenciled the flower to go across the picture. I painted it with water colours and did a bit more swiping over the top with the Bundled sage ink pad.
The leaves and butterflies, I think are Memory Box dies. water coloured then sprayed with Dylusions Gold Mica spray.
The challenge over at Country View Crafts for February is Painty Pleasures, I think that this may fit their theme as well.
