I was actually clearing up the craft room but you know how it is, you find a crackled background and a flower ........ and you just have to make something with them.
So I thought I would enter the finished small mixed media plaque into the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge this month which is:
Take A Stamp
(just remember to stamp somewhere)
The crackled background (a Tando Creative Mixed Media Board) was stamped with various PaperArtsy stamps and I then stamped a couple of layers to go on top.
The flower was left over from my Shabby Posies tutorial posted the other day.
I inked and stamped a leaf to match .....
and stamped a butterfly ........
Everything got layered with some painted die cut mesh, string, inked ribbon and a stamped sentiment. There is a crackled heart in there too (also found on my desk!).
I do like giving everything a spruce up with some gesso when everything is stuck down and also some gold paint.
Needless to say I didn't get very far with the tidying up!
As always thank you for joining me today!
and I hope you have a craft filled week.
