Hi there, this is one of my DT project for Chocolate Baroque featuring some of their gorgeous new stamps (Artistic Expressions from Chocolate Baroque and Britannia from Crafty individuals). As soon as I saw the sentiment 'In Englands's green and pleasant land I thought of the gorgeous stamps from Home Sweet Home stampsheet and wanted to combine them to create a little wall hanging
I used the reverse of a 5x7 canvas and cut out some card to cover the frame, I gave it a crackle background with a layer of green emulsion, then watered down PVA glue and a top coat of cream. Once it was dry I stamped the gorgeous swirls from Artistic Expressions with versamark and embossed with a pale green embossing powder. I used the same EP for the Britannia image on cream card, cut it out and popped it up with silicone glue.
Creating the little scene was easy, I just cut some card to fit the aperture of the frame, stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo black and coloured with promarkers. I made the flowers using Crinoline fabric, die cut with Crealies dies and coloured with glimmer mists. The fabric scrunches beautifully. The leaves are also die cut with Crealies, this time embossed with pale green embossing powder.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Art Impressions Stamps: CAS or anything but
Hiding in my craft room: bring on some spring
Stampman: colours of spring/Easter
Stempelsonnen: a flower for you
Thanks for calling by
