Another fortnight has passed by and it's time for a new theme over at the Craft-Room Challenge. This time, Esther is our hostess and she has chosen the theme of:
which she has defined as
'the state or condition of being painted, decorated etc in shades of a single colour'
My creation is a box picture frame measuring approximately 6 " x 6", which I have made into a wall hanging (I'm sure you're very surprised at that, lol), in Shades of Pink and using Oxford Impressions stamps:
The lace across the top of the frame, and the rose trim along the bottom of the recess, was dyed and dried then attached with a glue gun. I stamped the dress form in Black Archival Ink onto another piece of painted canvas and cut out, attaching some net and lace to form a skirt and attached a pearl in the centre, then mounting it onto the canvas on sticky pads with a little hot glue. A couple of rolled ribbon roses at the top, pink buttons, and "Feminine" (Clarity Stamps - thank you Julia!) stamped along the bottom, then a piece of ribbon to hang.
It was really difficult to get a good picture, but the first one is a good representation of the colours - the Camisole Pink emulsion is a pale, but very beautiful, shade..
This fortnight we are sponsored by:
who supply a unique range of chipboard designs that are both innovative and inspiring, as well as a fabulous range of masks.
I hope you can join in with our challenge, but if you'd like a little inspiration first, then please check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team.
