it's Sunday in Australia and that means it is time
for a new weekly challenge over at
Magnolia Down Under
This week we want to see some
either with your heat guns or with your
cuttlebugs and big shots,
emboss it, use a Magnolia image
and come and enter your project at MDUC
so we can come by for a visit :)
I have finally had a play with the "IT" stamp of the season, Bubbling Tilda, and it comes as no surprise that I LOVE her!!! I stamped her on Gina K cs in clear embossing liquid and sprinkled on crystal embossing powder and heat embossed, also stamping her a second time so that I could piece her wing later. I stamped her twice more with Archival ink so that I could layer her up good and proper, once for the entire form less the rear wing which is on the base cardstock, and once again for the arm. Once done cutting and slicing, I popped her up with foam dots, adhering the top wing down with glue at the base of the wingspan.
I'd like to tell you that my swirls were done through embossing but they weren't. Those are Inkadinkado swirls stamped in Broken China then stickled in Crystal which gives a gorgeous aquatic effect. The shadowed effect was done by distressing the bottom image in Bundled Sage and then by dabbing an old stiffened distressing pad over the top of the shadow with Milled Lavender.
The DP is Basic Grey from the Wisteria pack, the project has been distressed in Broken China and the CS has been stickled in Crystal, the flowers are spritzed in Tattered Angels glimmer mist, placed together with fern leaves from an EK Success punch, the square doily was tucked down to size and the sentiment and swirls were done with Inkadinkado stamps once again in Broken China and stickled in Crystal. I mized a few flourishes together and freehanded here and there til I was satisfied with the swirlyness. Until I can get my grubby little mits on some Stempleglede flourishes, this will just have to do, lol!!
Holy hell, that was a lot. No question left unanswered... So I will pop this in at a few challenges:
Just Magnolia is having an In The Garden challenge,
Stamp Something wants to see Summer Somethings,
Stamp With Fun is hosting a fairytale challenge,
so I took my friend Tilda outside to be in her natural element and tried to snap an artsy fartsy picture beneath my beautiful blooming bush and this is what happened:
I've been spending so much time with paper these days that my concept of lighting is slipping horribly, but nevertheless, look what is blossoming in my backyard, woohoo!! For those of you still with me, WAKE UP!! Hehee, hey, I have a blog candy thingy to post so keep an eye on my blog over the next few days :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
