A Golden Sample...

...I know, another dubious blog post title lol Anyways, I am back with another sample from Saturday's show. This one is really simple to put together... I will do a description but will start with the ingredients...



Studio 490 Stamps - Live & Make Art & Dimensional Rose Art
Crowded Attic Paper stack
Rectangles Art Parts
Leaves Art Parts
Grungepaper
Gold Dabber
Clearly for Art - Clear
Vintage Photo, Forest Moss & Antique Linen Distress Ink/Stains
Jet Black Archival Ink
Olive Archival Ink


Start by giving the edges of your Art Parts a quick wipe over with a paper towel, this will remove any sooty bits left from the laser cutting. Cover the base and frame of the Rectangle Art Parts piece with Crowded Attic Paper (or your own fave!) Trim to the edges, blend Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. Make a Wrinkle Free Distress on your craft sheet with the Stains/Inks, dip the frame and the base into this = dry them thoroughly. Re-dip to get little blotches on the paper. Sand the edges of the Art Parts.



Colour the Leaves with Forest Moss, zap with heat tool to dry... overstamp with Olive Archival and the large background of numbers (Dimensional Rose Art) Pop a piece of paper onto Clearly For Art Clear - use a good strong wet glue (Multi Medium is perfect for this job) Once dried, stamp the large flower from Live & Make Art. Cut out. Heat the reverse of the flower (Clearly for Art side) and mould the petals, gently blend a smidge of Vintage Photo over the curled bits to accent them. Stamp the open flower from Dimensional Rose Art 3 times onto the reverse side (canvas texture) of Grungepaper. Cut out and colour both sides using Gold Dabber. Dry. Now cut the flowers into petal layers to make a rose, assemble and glue onto the Clearly For Art flower. Stamp a sentiment on more of the paper and pop onto 3d foam. Put the pieces together as per photo :O))



So... there you have it... if you have any questions, please do just email me or leave me a comment. I had a comment yesterday asking if I have a video how to make the flowers... nope, I haven't... however, I will try and figure out a way of doing one (eeek) but I do have a picture tutorial on the sidebar over there *points to the left* so you should be able to get the gist from that. Right.. I am off to bed now.. I have a very important date today with some rather delightful and beautiful birds of prey and I cannot wait!! We will even get to "fly" them so they come back to gauntlet on your hand... oooh, how exciting!!! I will try and get plenty of photo's!! Thanks for looking... TTFN!!

Enjoyed the shows on Saturday Hels even if I had to watch the second on my computer because we don't have Sky. Didn't realise the Art Parts were so big, always thought they were a bit dear but can see now the value for money.
I live in a town and walking the dog on Saturday morning through a small estate there was a man with a Harris Hawk on his arm - very unusual - it was only a small grassy area so not sure what he could do with it there, still beautiful to see though.
