Now, here's the thing - I came across the dress while looking for something else - of course!! I had just seen a challenge that I quite fancied, so thought I'd make a tag using the colours but then - moving some more things around on the ongoing attempt to be more organised (stop sniggering at the back!) I came across a K and Co frame that had been tucked in behind something else, so that's what I've done!
It's a fairly simple affair. I used PA Fresco paints, Sky, Orchid and Autumn Fire along with Tim's doily stencil. To add a bit of texture I used crackle glaze on part of the frame and mixed some Sky fresco with Decoart media crackle paste to add some more doily stencilling. I stamped with Snowflake on a PA Squiggle Ink -Swirls and curls, around the edge of the aperture. The aperture itself was backed with some washi tape that I found in Sainsbury's. The little flowers stamped here and there were from an Artemio set and the centres finished with some distress stickles. The flower is using a technique that was shown to me at the WOYWW crop by Fiona - see her beauty here - except that I stamped a Stampendous flower onto some smooshy paper I had done using the chosen colours
|THE dress!! She used to look so sweet in it!|
The flower was sprayed with Goosebumps and the centre had some sparkly stickles added. This version is two flowers stacked together
If you would like to see how I made this take a look here
I do hope my GD likes it - especially if I can come up with something to go along with it!
I'm going to enter in
the Country View Challenge - 'Stencil it'
Our Creative Corner's Challenge which is 'include a flower and Hand Dyed ribbon'
Thanks for looking, Chris
