Welcome back to another challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!
This time the subject is -
Come and join us with your spring creations - Anything that is fresh, sunny and colourful.
I chose two very spring colours - Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw.
I cut out a rectangle of card to make a small hanging. I dabbed some Picket Fence DP through a leaf stencil. When this was dry I blended Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw DI over the card and then spritzed with water.
The card was stamped with some text from the Artistic Outpost Bluebird stamp set using Scattered Straw. I then stamped a music stamp with Tumbled Glass. Adding a darker script stamp brings depth to the background.
I added the words 'spring' and 'adventure' from chit chat stickers. They were dabbed with Scattered Straw DI and edged with Vintage Photo DI. They were then placed onto spare card that had been inked with Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw DI and stamped with text and music stamps.
The main picture was stamped with the birds nest stamp from the same AO set. I used Coffee Archival ink for this stamp. I added a bird stamp to this image from another stamp set.
I added two cream eyelets tot he top of the hanging and threaded hemp string through the holes tying the ends in knots to secure them.
I added small flowers that were recycled from an old project. The flowers were tiny die cuts that were covered with Guacamole and Bora Bora Fresco paint and were dabbed with a little Quinacridone Gold Decoart Traditions paint. They were then covered in Decoart One Step crackle before being inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink to highlight the crackle.
I added a small bow made from hemp string to the group of flowers
The edges of the hanging were darkened with Vintage Photo DI
A strip of lace was added to the bottom of the hanging with a strand of hemp string
So there is my Springtime picture! Hope you like it
