Hanging In The Garden...

...Cor, have you seen those new Paper Artsy Hot Picks??? They are divine and I have used a couple of them to make a little hanging which was cut using a Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Alteration and my very very very last piece of mountboard... needing to get some more soon...



Once I had cut the shape, I coloured it using Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss DI's... blending them all together to get a really natural look... sploshing water from my hand to make a blodgy look and then using the Rusty Hinge and Forest Moss to stamp the little birdy sprigs along the bottom and then used Olive Green StaZon to add darker ones and a long stem flower. I stamped the flower again onto white card and cut out some of the petals and coloured with a waterbrush and more DI's, popping them onto 3D foam to add depth.



The moths were stamped in the same StaZon and coloured with the same DI's and then I popped a couple of eyelets into the top and added some garden string for the hanging. All the stashy bits are available from The Stamp Attic :O)) That's all for now... can you hear that noise??? It's my bed calling me LOL Tis just after 2am and I am a big bog-eyed now so sleep is the only answer... thanks for looking... time for bed said Zebedee!! TTFN

Yes, I love this set. Your hangy piece is gorgeous. I can't have been concentrating before, what a great idea to use mountboard for making the base. Derrrr. Know I've got some somewhere, wonder if it's big enough...!!

I really do love this colour combo and those moths are just waiting for me, so I'm off to Jennie's shop - on line - to have a look for them.

Wow! this looks great. I dont have this die but a massive stash of bo bunny clearly mixed up albums which i've had for ages. these would also make great hangers too!!

This is gorgeous! Have only just got this same die! If you want mountboard, if you ask a photographer or a picture framer they may be able to give you their big offcuts - I got loads that way.
