..teehee... I do loves a giveaway and being as I want to say a mahooosive thank you for all your support and messages, Tweets (think I replied to you all) and emails (same again) I figured I would do a little giveaway as I didn't get chance to do one for the Craft Clinic show. So... here's the "original" for the inspiration I used for the first demo on yesterday afternoon's show.
As you can see, I have been rummaging in the recycling and used some cardboard for the base of the wall hanging. This is more of the dishwasher-tablet-box that Dawn "outed me" for lol Usually it is cardboard from Lord Alfonse's food boxes but the size of this Finish Powerball box was just too delectable to resist. It is ginorous so I have got a fair few creations out of it! Can you believe, I actually walk around the supermarket and Costco looking at the cardboard packaging? *mmm, no hope for me!* Anyways... I used Clear Texture Paste spread through the Tulip Silhouette mask and once this had dried, I blended Bundled Sage, Broken China and Forest Moss Distress Paints over the top, using Cut & Dry foam to make it nice and smoothly blended.
The black "pop" around the stencilling was done by using my trusty Stabilo All pencil, I LOVE this pencil, it is THE best bit of kit for adding shading to any surface... as it says on the label "all" really does mean all! Stan Spider is from the Botanical Art Studio 490 stamp set... as is the brilliant saying.... being a bit philosophywotsitacal here... we really are the designers of our own dreams!
Anyways... to be in with a chance of winning this wall hanging all you needs to do is leave me a comment on this post. One randomly picked commenter will win this and the closing time/date for the giveaway is 23:59 GMT Wednesday 9th October 2013 - the winner will be announced on Thursday 10th October 2013. I am afraid that I don't accept comments from Anonymous sources anymore (after shedloads of junk appearing daily) so if you would like to leave a comment and haven't already got one, all you needs to do is make a Google account...and that is a doddle, put "make Google account into... Google" This will take you step by step through the registration process and then you will be equipped to leave a comment :O) *hope that makes sense!* I shall away now... I am fair pooped after the excitement of the shows and it is bedtime (again, I am scheduling this post on Monday evening... which means that it is now really Tuesday morning... which is tomorrow... and not today at all..... confooosed? Mmm, I am!) Thanks for looking... have a fabby Tuesday! TTFN
