Good morning everyone!!
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend! I'm just dropping by to let you all know that a new month, means a new challenge has started over on The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog and the challenge this month is called LADIES DAY!! We want to see all your stamping projects featuring lovely ladies and gorgeous girls and for more inspiration and some wonderful DT projects, just click HERE!
...and here's my project for the challenge, as always ~ I hope you like it!
I used one of the gorgeous stamps from the Gibson Girls stamp plate and decided to create an Edwardian feel to my piece and made my own easel frame. To begin with I used a piece of mountboard as my backing for the entire piece and then painted the background with Distress Paints, leaving it to dry before stamping all over in a repeat pattern, using the Lace background stamp using Versamark Ink and embossed with clear powder.
The frame is die cut from chipboard, using a Sizzix Cameo Frame Die by Tim Holtz, painted with Distress Inks and then I added some Treasure Gold over the embossed areas to make them pop. I popped the finished frame over the top of the stamped image which was hand painted using Distress Marker Pens.
The big flowers are die cut using the Tattered Florals die...what else, lol?!?! I added Distress Inks to the flowers and then popped a gorgeous Embellish Your Art piece by the very lovely Wendy Vecchi into the centre of the really huge flower.
I added some die cut leaves, rusty wire, a little bit more Treasure Gold around the outside and a Idea-ology Word Band before adding a die cut easel stand to the back of my frame!! Sorry but I forgot to take a pic of that bit...lol!!
So, that's it from me for today and the whole team will be looking forward to seeing all your entries in this new challenge!! Good luck and thanks for dropping by to take a look at what I've created today!!
I'll see you again very soon with some more creations from Chez Williams'...bye for now!
Love Emma xxx
