That is the theme at Magenta for the next month - come join us - prizes to be won!
My most cherished memory of the last 20 years will have to be my
children (as I have been mariied for 25 years already, I couldn't use my
wedding photo's). They are not a memory of course, as they are all
alive LOL, but their childhood is a memory.
The chipboard has been covered with a piece of the same scrapbookpaper, and stamped with the same text stamp using texture paint. I punched some holes in it, and glued some white paper at the back to accentuate it.
LOVE this flower stamp - will be using it a lot! It's so versatile! And elegant!
I did the coloring around the flowers after I stamped it. I then masked it, and sponged over it. The background was one of my stash, 'cleaning up' my craftsheet after I've been using some ink for something else.
The flowers were not colored, but de-colored with some white acrylic paint, showing a little of the original background's color.
I used the following Magenta products for this project:
This Fortnights Challenge is a 'Lucky Dip'. what is that you ask? Well we would like you to pick '4' ingredients from the following list and include them in your project/card. Please tell us what items you chose to use.
Ingredients to choose from:
**** I used diecuts, pearls, distressing and stamped image.
I used the mask to sponge with, and then attached it to the card, as well. Didn't want to throw it away! The background is the leftover of an acrylic resist technique I did a while ago, didn't want to throw that away either! LOL That is why the white text is backward. Like it anyway!
I used some maps bookpaper to create this huge Hydrangea. The background has also been covered with the same bookpaper, with torn edges, and after that I stamped the Hydrangea with black solvent ink, colored it with watercolorcrayons. I covered that with watered down gesso, so the maps paper and hydrangea are more undefined.
I LOVE working with bookpapers, it give such depth, so many possibilities...
Looking at nature - 'Who but GOD could create such beauty?'
I've been asked how I made this -so adding it now :
I started with some scrapbookpaper.
I stamped on it, colored the images, and as you can see from the labels of the post, I've been sponging with distress inks, applied some Gesso through
punchinella, added some tissuepaper with text on it with decoupage, and
kept messing around until I was happy with it.
Most of the times I don't remember how I made it afterwards- it's one of a kind! Won't be able to get it twice the same!
YES, that's right, I am on the DT for TIOT also now, I've been entering in their challenges for a long time; time to get involved LOL
' Let's Get Inky' is the challenge this fortnight.
