Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all! Many thanks for all the wintery creations entered for last weeks challenge. This week the theme is a nice simple one... and the song title is getting another airing because I know I used it before... anyways... the theme is... ROSES. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can pop and see you. If you haven't got a blog, you can also join in via Facebook (simply tag my name in your upload) or via email by attaching a small size pic (my email addy is over there *click on the pic of me*) The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 2nd November 2013. *November... already!*
My entry this week is another sample for the Melt Pot Pick of the Day. All the deets for the shows are over in the side bar :O)) A fabby MDF blank shadowbox - I love these blanks, they are so versatile! I painted the base with Mushroom Eco Paint and then added some blue tones to add a little colour. I used Cut & Dry foam to apply the paint so I could get some nice streaky lines and patches.
I stamped the Chicken Wire background using Black StaZon onto a single ply of cosmetic tissue and then popped it onto the blank using beeswax... I just love beeswax and the lovely soft tone effect it gives. I added a smidge of Mica Powder around the edges to add some sparkle to the base and then made a card insert, again painting it the same as the frame and adding some stamping... the sentiment - love that sentiment - and then I stamped some more flowers to make them into roses... dipped these into the beeswax and glued them into place.
I shall away now - I am scheduling this post because I am away teaching this weekend... so it is really Friday morning now... not Sunday at all... which will only confuse me if I start to think about that so... I shall say... thanks for looking, have a great day! TTFN
