Firstly a mention of the fabulous blog candy by the very talented Lynne Stevens from Trash to treasure. It is her 3rd blog anniversary and to celebrate she is giving away some of her amazing work as blog candy, it is so so gorgeous.
Yes its time for another Crafty Individual challenge, Winter Wonderland yay love these challenges, so here it is.
I was inspired by Jean Hardys project in one of the Craftstamper issues for this canvas. Firstly painting the canvas with white gesso which I left to dry, then just mixing in some prussian blue watercolour into the gesso and I painted the background. I stamped and inked some of the CI chipboard houses. I used Inka gold and crackle medium with a touch of gilders paste patina on the fences & the snowflake and used several of the images from the CI books. Then outlined the houses with a gold krylon pen. The Santa & the angels were stamped onto tissue paper then cut out and glued to the canvas then tinted with watercolours.
Stamps used are CI 169, CI 258, CI 163, other stamps are various text stamps from curious by design and Artistic Out post.
This card came about because I saw this gorgeous stamp used by Mrs B to make her fabulous design team card for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge and I loved the card so much I had to have the stamp by rubber stampede, with the lovely Da Vinci image.
Then I thought I'd have ago making it into a pendant. I used some shrink plastic which I die cut, sanded slightly and painted with a thin layer of gesso and used that lovely stamp again and coloured the image with zig photomarkers. Rubbed a bit of inka gold on the back and added glossy accents to the front and glue on a couple of gold connectors and a pearl.
Finally another christmas card using the same Stempelglade Vintage christmas stamps as I used in my last post. But with the addition of the new memory box die which I doubled up to give a 3D effect
Phew, that's all for today. My back is feeling a lot better now, thanks, I think I spend to much time on my behind crafting and not doing enough exercise LOL!
Thanks again for all your lovely kind comments, hope you all had a great weekend.
Happy Crafting XX
