Hi everyone and thanks for dropping in here. After a little break in July, I am back with my first project for August.
Eileen Hull die. This Artist Trading Block, measure 3 x 3 x 3", so is a perfect size for little embellishments etc.
I started by cutting the die for my cube twice as per instructions, out of 480 grammes black card stock. Next I made a kind of master board to cut my panels from.
Dylusions Inks in Melted Chocolate and Fresh Lime, spritz with water and let it drip a bit. I then over stamped with the Marbelled Background stamp in Orange Blossom Archival ink. At this point I was just playing to see what would happen. Here is a close up:
Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. This was starting to look a lot more like what I was after...
Calligraphic Mat 12 , stamped in Antique Linen Distress Paint, a honey comb stencil from my stash and a stamp from the Katie Leitch "Hand Stamped" set. The diecut was a gift from a friend.
The next two panels use stamps from the Katie Leitch Leaves set.
Hand Stamped set again. I also used the Chicken Wire background stamp
Time to put it all together. I decided to add a little figure to the top of my box to add as a vocal point:
metal fasteners, altered with some Espresso Alcohol Ink.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy the rest of the week!
