Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all! Thank you for the gorgeous entries for last weeks challenge. This week is going to be a slightly different than normal challenge... because it is going to be a TWO week challenge. Oh yesh, for the first time in 4 years, the Sunday Stamper will be taking a week off... fear not though, it will be back again on October 6th. On with this fortnightly challenge theme though which is... KEYS. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND some stamping. Once you have made your creation, pop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog, you can also join in via Facebook, simply tag my name on your upload... or by email and attaching a small resolution piccie for me to see. My email addy is over there *points left* where my photo is, click on that and you can get the deets :O) Remember, this is a two week challenge and will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 5th October 2013.
My entry this week is one of my show samples... I have been so busy making samples and such like that I didn't get chance to do any other art for the past couple of weeks.... and I know that sometimes we don't get a chance to see the samples close up so I thought I would share a few with you this week, starting with this one. It is made from the 3 board hanging set and it is MDF based. I love love love this set... perfect size and of course, being MDF is always going to be a winner.
The base was painted with Lake Mist Dabber and then I layered up some That Special Touch stencils... Scattered Straw blended through the Trellis stencil... then Broken China through the Flower mask and then the Sunburst stencil... LOVE this one... that is Seedless Preserves DI blended through that. The stamping is done with Watering Can Archival Ink (LOVE this colour, tis my new fave.. thank you Wendy Vecchi for making this one happen!) I used the Creative Expressions Textures stamps.. the top and bottom panel have the crackle background randomly stamped and the middle has that gorgeous french text stamped.
The flowers are stamped onto Foundations papers using Aquamarine and Blue Violet Archivals and then cut out, curled, layered and decorated with pearl middles. I love adding lots of goodies into a bundle of flowers which is where the fabby Embellish Your Art pieces came in handy... and of course... glass vials filled with the delicious new Broken China Distress Glitter...well, it had to be done! I LOVE that new glitter! Shhh, don't tell anyone though... being as I am a non-glittery kind of person normally lol
Right, I shall away... hope you all have a great day planned... I am away to Telford to teach at Crafty Bunch today and tomorrow. Thanks for looking! TTFN
