At Country View Challenge #12 this month it is Painty Pleasures and Tando Creative challenge is Passions, my passions are stamps and getting very inky and painty, so I hope this fits their challenge.
So today I lost myself in my little craft room and got very painty. There are quite a few photos so I hope you can stay until the end.
Firstly I exposed some of the corrugated backing then added paints to the panel. I used Adirondack paint Aqua and Pool, also some cream acrylic tester pot paint which I dry brushed and used fingers to blend the colours, I love getting my hands into the paint.
next I used a mask firstly with pool paint and by moving the mask slightly I went over again with aqua leaving a shadow effect I was really pleased how this turned out you can just see it under the stamped image. I was lucky enough to win this mask oblong/square from a Tando Creative challenge.
next using same mask and texture paste I added some to top and bottom corners, I also rubbed some over an area with my finger so just leaving a little texture, when dry more paint and distress ink was added.
Here you can see the texture better and the mask effect.
flowers I found in my stash they had gems in which I didn't like so I replaced them with the little buttons, corners are from Creative Expressions I love them so using them is hard....lol but the corners were crying out for something.
Everything was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink coffee, words were stamped onto cream card with same ink and I used distress inks antique linen all over the card and vintage photo around the edges, after they had been cut out. Metal butterfly was silver so I altered this with a alcohol pen.
Vintage photo distress ink was rubbed over the raised areas and around the edges. I also used wax rub on with my finger over all the raised edges unfortunately I couldn't get the camera to pick this up but in real life it looks fabulous. The hanging is destined for the bedroom as the colours are a perfect match .......which was a pure accident!
Thank you for staying until the end hope you like my project.
