Sunday Stampers - Week 204 - Brown and Blue

Hello Blog Friends

It is Sunday so I am entering into the wonderful Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers, details of which can be found over at http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ and the theme for this week was inspired by the song Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue. 

I have had this 8 inch square canvas for ages and thought it was about time it had an airing.  For my submission today, aside from Hel's amazing tag over at her blog, I took inspiration from the uber talented Kath Stewart at http://kath-allthatglitter.blogspot.co.uk/ .  Kath has a wonderful style, which I love and she uses many Tim Holtz products, which I also love.  I hope that you will take a moment to visit her blog.

I painted the canvas with gesso, then blue acrylic paint and a touch of green along the bottom.  I stamped with picket fence distress stain through a small dots mask and then overstamped using bubble wrap and peacock feathers distress ink.  I attached some of Tim's tissue paper (not the tape) randomly across the canvas.  The flowers are cut using Papermania kraft card  and the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.  I spritzed the die cut flowers with lots of water, scrunched them up and then put them together with a large blue pearl brad.  The stems and leaves are cut from pearlescent card and the word is cut from Tim's wordplay die, using more of the tissue glued to some card and I mounted these onto some more kraft card.



I would also like to enter this inthe May Monthly Challenge over at Inspiration Emporium - http://blog.inspirationemporium.com/  where the challenge is Flowers.

If you have a look I hope you will leave me a comment and I will always try and return the favour.  Hope you are having a lovely weekend.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  16. I love your canvas! It's adorable!! Such a simple design but so elegant at the same time! Beautiful job! Thank you so much for the very sweet comment you left on my blog this morning! You made my day! I love the fact that I inspire you!! Yay! The dimensional hot air ballon is so much fun to do! You might have to trim the balloon just a little when you fold it together because it's not a perfectly symmetrical stamp....but you don't notice it at all when you ink all the edges. :) Have fun with it! <3 Candy
