This is the first one I have had a dabble with is quite simple, measuring about 3.5 in wide x 4.5 in high:
A couple of coats of Gesso on the base then distress inks in Fired Brick, Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw. The Art Journey image was stamped in Jet Black Stazon then, using a waterbrush, I removed as much of the colour from the image as I could to try and give the illusion of some depth, although this is more pronounced in real life. I have embossed around the edges in Aged Gold embossing enamel and stamped "Precious" in Jet Black Stazon directly into the enamel whilst it was still molten. This piece is just under half an inch deep so I have used TH tissue tape around the edges, touched with some Fired Brick (not visible).
Before I go, here's the first of a few pics of my grandson, who is now 9 weeks old (hasn't he grown!) - it seems that he has been doing some modelling for Tricky Little Stitches, would you believe! Here he is showing one of Karen's little numbers off, the Little Leo hat (Karen is the sister of the very talented Marie of Baileyrosy):
I'd like to enter this into the Shopping Our Stash Challenge, whose theme is "Go Green", as I've recycled the mdf offcut, Creative Inspirations Paint as they have an "Anything Goes" theme, and a 3rd entry into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge's "Alter Something" theme.
Don't forget that the Craft-Room Challenge also have a current theme of "Alter It" at the moment.
Enjoy your weekend.
