Today is an exciting day as here is my first piece as a proud visiting artist for gingersnap creations!! I was so excited and chuffed to be asked..The challenge this time is to use a set or range of stamps...I went for the one and only TIM!!So here is my piece:
I decided to use a great set called fairytale frenzy and an additional Tim text stamp, some distress inks and some idea-ology.
I started with a blank book which had been been pre painted and crackled, using crackle medium and household emulsion!Once dry..I inked the book cover using antique linen, iced spruce and broken china.
I then added a strip of tissue wrap, which I think I can officially say I am addicted too!!, to the spine and left hand side of book, this was covered with picket fence distress stain and then when dry covered in DI.I over stamped the cover with the flowery flourish thing in broken china, direct to the cover and left to dry.
The central panel is coloured using DI and the sentiment stamped in archival black ink.
make sure you hop over to Gingersnap Creations to join in all the fun!! See you next week for more gingersnap fun!
