Hope you all had a good Easter!
For my second project this month I decided to make a little Springtime hanger.
Paper Mache Icons, this one is the 20.2 x 10 x 1.3 cm one. First I added some texture with the help of a Tim Holtz and a Crafters Workshop stencil, the Gothic Romance one and some Grunge Paste, when that was dry I gave it a coat of Snowflake Fresco Finish Paint. Then for a more grungy look I added some Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint.
Next I added some colour, I decided to use some of the new Wendy Vecchi Archival Inks. I used Dandelion,Cornflowers, a tiny bit of Leaf Green, Tree Branch and Potting Soil. I applied it using some make up sponges. I also did some background Stamping using the Calligraphic Mat 12 stamp and stenciling using Watering Can.
Butterflies and Insects set.
Sometimes it works better to add background colour first before stamping your image and then colouring it afterwards, so I prepared a bit of smooth stamping paper with some Dandelion Archival ink and some home made gold shimmer spray.
I then stamped my chosen butterfly, fussy cut it and adhered it to the panel, after darkening the centre a little bit with a Walnut Stain Distress Marker
Some flowers, Tim Holtz chip board letters and chit chat stickers finished it all off.
Hope you like my hanger and don't forget, there are a few days left still to join in our challenge, Embossing and Texture.
Have a happy inky day
