From my stash I used a small canvas, old book pages, mica sprays, white tissue paper, punchinella, , a small piece of chipboard, a swirl die-cut, some mini roses, gold acrylic paint,string and pearls.
I started by covering my canvas with some old bookpages, gluing them on with Claudine Hellmuth multi medium matte. .
I sprayed some mica sprays in various light blue and green shades and added further colour with distress inks in Shabby Shutters, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. I stamped the gothic window from the Archtecture plate in Black Archival ink onto copy paper, cut it out and also collaged it onto the canvas, for some more texture I added some crumpled tissue paper and then swiped more of my inks over it and also some Viva gold. I wanted to highlight the texture with that and also make it appear as if light was falling onto the window.
Now, for the most difficult part: waiting until the Ferro would dry. As on this occasion I did not want it to bubble, so I did not use my heat gun and just had to be patient. While waiting I got my other embellishments ready. I stamped one of the elements from the Archtecture plate onto white card stock in black Archival, cut it out and coloured it with Chipped Sappphire Distress ink. I cut a swirl out of vanilla card stock and coloured it green with Pine Needle Distress Ink. I glued it along the frame of the gothic window and then added some little burgundy roses that I had high lighted a bit with the Viva gold.
When the Ferro was dry I coloured it with a Denim Blue dabber and highlighted the letters with some gold acrylic paint from my stash
Finally I put it all together by adding some string, the architecture element (to which I added 3 gold pearls, and the little Create panel over the string.
Well, I hope you like it and I will see you next time.
