New Challenge at Penny Black and More - All Creatures Great and Small........
It's a new challenge over at Penny Black and More today and the new theme is " All Creatures Great and Small". Do go over and check it out, there are prizes to be had too!!!
My design for this challenge has been made using the Penny Black 40-312 Sunny Pair, the sentiment is the 30-419 Happy Wishes set, the beautiful butterfly is the 40-099 Soft Wings and the floral background border is 40-100 Fanciful.
I started with a piece of Sheena Stamping Card and painted it with black gesso. I then popped a layer of weathered wood on there (letting each layer dry completely in between). When this was dry I painted on two lovely shades of purple and very light blue chalk paint and watched it crack before my eyes!!!! Sealed then with Decoart Matte Medium. This formed my background and I was ready to start!
I stamped the Sunny Pair first with black versafine and topped it with clear embossing powder to set it. I've painted in the lovely sunflowers with some acrylics. The floral border was then stamped at the edges, just lightly so that you could see that it is there but subtly in the background.
The butterfly was stamped on to sheet music and stiffened by backing it onto very thick black card stock - I glued the sheet music to the black card with Americana Decoupage glue. Cut out the butterfly and painted it lightly with the same chalk paints but this time diluted down a touch.
The sentiment of Happy Happy Wishes was stamped with the Versafine ink and set with clear embossing powder.
I enjoyed making this one and I just love the quality of the stamps!!
I hope that you will join us at Penny Black and More this month and good luck!!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
