Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday
to you all! Thanks for your entries into last weeks nature themed
challenge. This week the theme is... ROSES. To
join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something; a
card, canvas, ATC, a piece of altered art and add on some roses - be they handmade, paper, stamped, real... the
choice.. it be yours! Add in the theme AND some stamping. Then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to
the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you. If you
haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or
by emailing a small res.pic to me or by leaving me a link to your Pinterest or any other photo hosting site. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 26th September 2015.
My entry this week is a glass jar *yes, I have been scoffing more pickled onions!* that I altered using the Rock Candy Crackle technique - I love the crackle effect on the glass! The roses were made using Tim's Tattered Florals die and the Mini Tattered Florals Movers & Shapers die- cutting cream card, inking with Cracked Pistachio and Dusty Concord Distress Ink and overstamping with the Dusty Concord and a Studio 490 background stamp to add a bit of prettiness to them. There is a tutorial I did ages ago with a step by step on how to make these roses - doesn't matter whether they are the big or little ones... the tut will work for both... tis over there in the sidey bar *points left*
Once the roses were made, I fired up my Melt Pot and melted Clear UTEE into it... then dipped the roses into the clear UTEE to create a faux porcelain effect. The leaves are the Mini Tattered Leaves Movers & Shapers - also cut from cream card, inked with Peeled Paint DI and overstamped with Forest Moss DI... and also dipped into the clear UTEE. The sentiment is a Studio 490 stamp, popped onto another of Tim's dies - the Movers & Shapers Labels die.
What a gorgeous day it is here today... bright blue sky and sunshine... which means that I might nip into the garden for a few hours tidying and getting ready for autumn... the old cad Mojo is still not here all the time so while he is away, I shall get greenfingered instead of inkyfingered! I hope you have a grand day! Thanks for looking... TTFN
