Good Evening Peeps
I decided last night what I wanted to make for the Sunday Stamper Challenge on Hels Sheridan's blog so had to set to it pretty pronto as the deadline is 9pm tonight! Yikes!! So this is my little piece!
The base is an 8 x 8 canvas which I bought from The Works some time ago which I gesso'd to give it a bit of texture, then inked it before spraying with my colour washes. I then added a torn piece of Kaisercraft and out of the bits I cut off I made the roses.
The dies is are both Tim Holtz's both of which I bought from Country View Crafts and the stamps are a mixture of PaperArtsy and Tim Holtz bought at The Event a few weeks ago. I painted the bird cage with copper alcohol ink before running it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder, sanding it and adding Walnut Ink DI.
The charms are from a bracelet which I bought from Claire's Accessories recently. The bracelet was reduced to £2 and I just knew when I saw it that I wanted to team it with the stamps and die to make a little piece to go on the wall near my sewing end of my room.
The buttons are all old ones from my button pots. Some very kind people in work have given me some lovely buttons to add to my collection and some of them I imagine came off some FAB old coats. Keep 'em coming as you never know when I might need them!
Thanks for looking. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and please do not forget to leave me a comment.
