Hi everyone hope you are all well and having a crafty time. I have a plaque
for you today using the new stencils from The artistic Stamper,
and some Artistic stamper stamps.
Firstly I brayered on the fresco paint till it resembled old stone.
I then used a pallet knife to apply the grunge paste to the top left
I applied this quite thickly so it would resembled old stone
once I had stamped into it using the circular column toppers
of the architecture plate.
I inked up the stained glass window off the architecture plate
stamped it twice with black stazon once onto the background
and once onto spare card. This was then cut out and
stuck into the frame of the main image of the arch.
I used the Artistic Stamper lace background stamp & inked it up with stazon black ink
This resembles peeled paint if you used the right area's. Stamp around the
I put texture paste through the Artistic Stamper flourish stencil, I then
sprinkled a mix of pale blue and gold embossing powder and dried
with a heat gun.
I used the Framelits die and glued this up the side after I had sprayed it with spiced
marmalade and rusty hinge distress spray stains.
I wasn't keen on the colour although it did look like an old Gothic
building I wanted it to look vibrant and highlight the swirl
I stamped the calligraphy mat 4 on distress treated paper which had
been swiped with old page and stained walnut.
I used the distress stain sprays to spray the entire piece to make it more vibrant.
I highlighted in area's with gilding wax. I applied a three
embellishments to look like old rusty bolts.
I must admit looking at it it reminds me of Rapunzel maybe the swirl is her hair
That's it for today as always let me know what you think remember look
at your stamps and see what other patterns they can create.
