Hello my lovelies and a very Happy Easter to you, I hope you're having a good weekend. We've got a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around our theme is Flying Things, chosen by my lovely teamie Laura. Don't forget that we're a stamping challenge so make sure you follow the theme and that stamping is the focal point of your project. As always we've got a fab prize for our lucky winner - a $20 voucher from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft!
I've made a little wall hanging for my DT project. I began by painting some mountboard with black gesso and once that was dry I used a Dutch Doobadoo stencil with Maimeri Glassy gel to add some texture. I then brushed on some gold PanPastel and edged the board with Treasure Gold.
I made a background using a Clarity stencil and distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Broken China, tore it to shape and distressed with Black soot.
The focal image is from Indigo Blu, stamped with flitter glu and gilded. I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and distressed with PanPastel before giving the birdie a coat of glossy accents.
The sentiment is also from Indigo Blu but I replaced the word fly with letters from one of the fabby Flonzcraft alphabet stamp sets, this one is Fonteroy and you can find it here. I stamped the letters on some scraps of my background and attached the Idea-ology charms with glossy accents. Once dry I cut out and embossed around the edges with gold EP. I saw this faux soldering technique in Craft Stamper and I love it!!
I assembled all my layers, adding some recycled black netting for a bit more texture and to finish off I added some AB gems, a paper flower and some die cut leaves.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty: birds and bees
Creative Knockouts: Furry or feathery friends
