Hi there my lovelies, I hope you're having a good weekend. It's time for our new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Beautiful Blooms'. My teamies have lots of gorgeous artwork to inspire you and we've got a fab prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft too! Don't forget though we're a stamping challenge so no digi stamps are allowed.
I've altered a little heartshaped album cover for my project, using stamps from Indigo Blu. I began with a coat of white gesso and then once that was dry I added acrylic paints in blues and greens. Next came some stencilling using a flower stencil from Indigo Blu and an old favourite chicken wire stencil from Dutch Doobadoo.
I stamped the flower stamp on tissue paper with blue versafine ink and applied with with matte medium and then stamped again on acetate but emobossed with sparkly silver EP. I cut the flowers out, painted the backs with acrylic paint and layered them up with silicone glue.
I added some enamel dots to the centre of the stamped flowers and then went to town adding paper flowers, faux moss, berries, ribbon and lace.
Everything was going nicely until I stamped the sentiment (again from Indigo Blu) on tissue and realised it wouldn't fit grrrrrrrr! I just cut it up and applied it to either side of my image, I'm such a bodget lol.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Fancy ribbon and bows
Crafting for all seasons: make it girly
Creative Corner: shabby
Dream Valley: vintage
Frilly and funkie: let the words do the talking
Incy Wincy: alter something
Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soonClaire xx
