Good morning folks, a quick post to let you know that the lovely and very talented Lesley Wharton will be on The Craft Channel at 11am today with some gorgeous Chocolate Baroque stamps and Brushos too! I'm just rushing off to do a little shopping so I'm back in time to watch, I love Brushos but I'm definitely a beginner with them so I'm looking forward to some tips from our Lesley!
This is one of my samples for the show. I had a play mixing Brusho's with white gesso for the background and used one of the fab wooden blanks from Chocolate Baroque. I slapped on loads of white gesso, misted with water and then lightly sprinkled on some crimson Brusho. I was really cool watching the brusho crystals reacting with the water and gesso. Once it was dry I added a little crackle medium and some more white gesso .
The tree stamp is one of my favourites, it's from the Glade A6 set or you can get a full A4 set of lots of gorgeous trees too . I love these stamps as they come with lots of different leaves, flowers etc so you can create you own tree and of course using different colours enables you to change the seasons.
I stamped the tree on white tissue with versamark and embossed with Gold EP and applied it to the background with matte medium. I chose not to use any of the leaves but added dots of glue, glitter and mica flakes to my tree. The sentiment is another old favourite, from Chocolate Baroque, Words of Inspiration.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting with friends: Anything goes
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Simply Papercraft: Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Home decor
Southern Girls: texture
Well I'd better scoot off as the cupboards are bare and I don't want to miss the show!
Thanks so much for visiting today
