I have a project to share with you toady that was inspired from an article in the May edition of Craft Stamper. The original projects was by Riikka Kovasin, where she used leftover chipboard alphabet shapes to cover a canvas. I did not have chipboard alphabet shapes, but I do have a Cricut and several cartridges that have alphabets on them. So I cut out two different types of alphabet several times and then glued three together to make my own. Next it was all treated to a layer of white gesso, before spraying with three different colours of Glimmer Mists. When it was all dry I found a stamp that had words on it and over stamped the letters with black ink (this is what Riikka had done), at this stage I thought it looked a little dark. So I got out my Inka Gold metallic paints and just rubbed some lighter colours over the copper and the plum, I found I preferred the look now. I've decorated the corner by using a combination of die cuts, doily and swirls are from Marianne, Ivy leaves are Crafter Companion the butterflies are Spellbinders and finally the flowers are Heartfelt creations Arianna stamps and dies, coloured with spectrum noir pens. I really enjoy making this and already have several other ideas along the same line buzzing around in my head.
I'm going to enter this into the Stamping Sensations Challenge this month. They are asking for Summer Flowers, I think this will fit the bill.
Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
