The current crafty Individuals challenge is Bright & Beautiful and I'm a little late with my entry this month.Thankfully the weather is bright and beautiful today as all it did yesterday was rain continuously. I've used some more distress inks I don't usually reach for, mustard seed, barn door & peeled paint. I think it would have been a lot easier using distress stains but as I don't have any I used my inks. Not really sure what the difference is to be honest. I used one of the wooden shrines as I love these. I decided just to use inks and stamps on this shrine and resisted the urge to add any extras.
I used gesso on the shrine then some cream matt emulsion. I stamped the images with archival ink & the two CI stamps used are CI- 209 & CI- 277. Then the distress inks to create the background & the colour the back of the shrine. I used water colours to paint the children. I varnished the shrine to protect the inks & water colours & finished by using my gold krylon pen round the edges.
After what I said on the last post I'm entering this in for a couple of other challenges at the Stampman & Gingersnap Creations LOL!
I was fiddling with my blog template yesterday as I wanted to be able to add the extra large photos, and now I wish I hadn't as I think I moved the margins, oh dear it will teach me not to do it again!
Not a lot of time for crafting next week as I'll be busy packing for our holiday to Normandy so I'm hoping the weather improves as they're weather is similar to ours. Still the wine is a lot cheaper.
Thank you for looking & happy crafting XX
