Today, I dug out one of my favourite favourites:
I love this stamp. The first time I used this image, which was basically the same, it was produced by Hampton Arts. I adored it - and have the wood mounted stamp knocking about somewhere! It was then reproduced, with a few added bits, by Stampers Anonymous - I think (but don't quote me) it may have been one of the Tim Holtz collections. I have used it over and over again.
This actual piece was made for one of the demo weekends I did at Ally Pally, with Creative Expressions. I was demonstrating with Angelina Fibres (again), but wanted to try something different. Normally the fibres are very shiny - which doesn't appeal to everyone. I wanted to use the fibres in a alternative way, more grungy.
I made my sheet of fibres as usual, but then glued it onto my card. I then used acrylic paint over part of the fibres - making sure I don't cover the full sheet, as I still wanted a bit of that shine coming through.
You get a subtle shine, but you also get the texture.
Something else I loved about this piece was the flower. This is made out of grunge paper. I used a Wendy Vecchi stamp, painted it using acrylic paint, and added to my piece with brads. It's the perfect finishing touch
I decided to call today "Throwback Friday"....realised it probably should have been Throwback Thursday.....so renamed it Feet-up Friday :)
Have a lovely evening everyone xx
