Hello crafty friends, it's time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Blots and Splashes' so it's a great excuse to have some messy fun. As always our lucky winner will receive a generous prize from our lovely sponsor Flonzcraft so I hope you're going to play along. Don't forget though we do need to see stamping as the focal point of your project, no digis are allowed!
I've made a wall hanging for my DT project using lots of recycled elements. I used some old corrugated card for the first layer, stripped the top layer off and then applied white gesso. Once that was dry I diluted some acrylic paints (gold, teal and green) with water and splashed them on with an old toothbrush. I added some bigger splashes along the top and tilted the card to let the paint run.
I repeated this on the next layer which was made with an offcut of white card, scraps of designer paper (Prima Believe) and old dictionary pages.
I stamped 'Kate' one of Julie Nuttings fabulous Prima Doll stamps on white card and on some dictionary pages which I coloured with Graph'It Markers. I paper pieced her dress using another scrap of Prima paper, adding some shading with my GI markers. I layered Kate up on 3d foam pads and added some faux moss around her feet.
I made the flowers from die cut paper flowers, adding seed beads to the centres.
To finish off I've added lace, ribbon, raffia, buttons, twine, a teeny weeny peg and a pretty brad. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque, stamped on kraft card.
