simon says ...inspired by water
well it a while since I have played due to my hand and other stuff..but I have been lucky enough to have a bit of playtime and inspired by the fun I had creating on corrugate dcard from an old box..i had another go for simonsaysstampand shows water theme . so here is my make :
I started with a piece of corrugated box, cut and pulled some of the top layer off to reveal some of the corrugated texture. I then covered with a layer of slightly watered down gesso and then when dry applied studio 490 white embossing paste through the great mini confetti stencil.
If you look closely you can see little hearts in between the splats. Then onto the watery stuff. I spritzed the background with dylusions sprays in vibrant turquoise, calypso teal and white linen and lots of water and dripping later I was happy.
I then lay the stencil on in reverse and spritzed water through and then after a few seconds dabbed off to reveal white.
Hope you can see that? Then I edged with treasure gold in pewter. The heart was cut from corrugated card and painted with gesso, then I added some embossing paste. final this too was sprayed, watered and rubbed with treasure gold and a little twirl of wire.
Finally I added the sentiement from unity stamps..and some wire to hang it. I used lots of water in the making of this and somehow it has a kind of watery look to the finished piece..not that I planned that when I started! one last picture..
