Over at PaperArtsy blog Alison Bomber has been sharing her gorgeous art and the challenge is to make something inspired by Alison's pieces now I have been lurking over at PA blog for some time and for some reason have never joined in so this is a first for me...... here is my wall hanging totally inspired by Alison and PaperArtsy stamps.
Firstly I found some corrugated card packaging and striped down some of the paper then dry brushed gesso over......meant to so some photos but got carried away with the project and forgot.....oops sorry!!
Next I distressed the main piece of card with tea dye, pumice stone distress Inks. I used PaperArtsy Stamps HP1009 and HP1205. The flower was stamped in Adirondack Esspresso and coloured with distress ink tea dye this way some of the colour from the background also showed through giving a nice shaded look which I liked I also added some pumice stone watered down around some of the bottom petals to make the flower "pop" lastly I added embossing powder to the flower centre, next I stamped the grasses and birds in pumice stone several times across the bottom and used vintage photo around all edges. The sentiment which I love was stamped in Espresso and embossed with Wow embossing powder and I distressed with tea dye, cut out added a clipboard clip.
Now at this point I was happy with the way everything had come together but something was missing and try as I might nothing came to me so I slept on it and bright and early this morning I had a flash of inspiration.... to use some stencils...... yes that's better! I then mounted this onto my corrugated board added a wire hanging and dah dah.... finished and only in the nick of time so I had better get over to PaperArtsy blog and post or I will miss the deadline.
I would also like to play at Crafts-Too Challenge You where the main theme is Texture and Twist 1
How would you describe your style.......mine would have to be vintage grungy shabby chic anything that lets me get messy while I'm crafting.....I can do cute and do sometimes but my heart lies with vintage and grungy.
