Helllooooo, where on earth did the last two weeks go? They've whizzed by in the blink of an eye so that means its time for our new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. This time our theme is 'Alter it' and our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from Leo, our lovely sponsor from Flonzcraft. So ink up those stamps and get altering :-), if you need some inspiration pop over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous samples from my DT sisters.
If you're anything like me, you'll have a huge heap of 'stuff' in the corner of your craft room waiting to be altered - i'm such a hoarder I don't think i'll get everything altered if i live to be 100 lol. Anyway I had a rummge in my heap of
rubbish, i mean stuff and found this old gift box that Santa brought a couple of years ago.
I gave the whole thing a coat of gesso and covered the sides with tissue tape. I used a variety of masks and stencils with Maimeri light modelling paste on the front and on a sheet of card to frame the image. Once it was dry I added colour with PanPastels and Dylusions ink, finishing off with some Renaissance treasure gold.
The focal image is 'Girl with bird on hand' from Flonzcraft, she's coloured with Graph'It and promarkers, the sky and grass were created with PanPastels. I just love this stamp, she's so sweet.
Here's a pic of the sentiment in the corner, stamp from Chocolate Baroque, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and butterfly from the Ribbon Girl. The little frame is actually a die cut fob watch with the top bit cut off to make a little circular frame.
To finish off i've added a silky ribbon bow and a paper rose.
