Woo hoo, its time for our first challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and we've got a really easy challenge for you, yep its 'Anything goes' although you've got to get inky as we're a rubber/clear challenge so no digi stamps are allowed. Our lucky winners are in for a real treat as the generous Marina from Cottage Crafts has kindly donated 2 prizes for our first challenge!!
I've used lots of my favourite stamps on this canvas (which was part of some yummy candy from my lovely Blogland friend Brenda). The canvas and the scalloped frame (a recycled lid from some chipboard shapes) were crackled with brown and cream emulsion paint and watered down pva glue. I then paint fusioned them with Sheena Douglass' paint fusion Daisy stamps (well actually they aren't Sheena's, they're mine lol). Ithen added some walnut stain distress ep around the edges. The little angel stamp is 'Bess' by Elaine Cox from Sweet Pea Stamps, she is coloured with promarkers apart from her hair which I coloured with coloursoft pencils. I always struggle to colour curly hair but I think I've got a better result with pencils than I do with markers.
The butterflies are some of my favourite stamps from the Patchwork Butterfly stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped them on acetate with versamark and embossed with walnut stain distress EP. I then glittered the back of the butterflies with pale blue, lemon and brown glitters and cosmic shimmer glue. I left them overnight to dry and cut them out before attaching them to the canvas. I stuck the bodies down with a smear of silicone glue and popped the wings up with large blobs of silicone to let the light shine through the glitter. You can see the detail a bit better on this pic:
