This month at Creative Carte Blanche the lovely Hels has chosen the theme of
Blossoms and Bookpages. The CCB team have made some stunning creations,
it is definitely worth a look!
I have been
saving hoarding Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts for several years now and as some of
my friends know, I don't like opening new packets, I just like to save them to look at - BUT, I
opened the 'Create a Container' package to make my piece.
To create the background I painted the parts with Scattered Straw Distress Paint.
I used Wendy's Art for You background stamp for the back and front piece. The trim and
leaves were painted with Lucky Clover Distress Paint and then over-stamped with Wendy's
Nature's Art background stamp. I assembled the pieces of the container.
To create the book page background, I ripped up a few pages from an old book and used
Glue 'n' seal to glue the pages to a piece of Wendy's Clearly for Art (clear). I stamped
Wendy's Art Works flowers using Ranger Black Archival ink.
The flowers were cut out and sprayed with Scattered Straw Distress Spray Stain and heated
with a heat gun to shape them. The button brad centre was coloured with Ground
Espresso Distress Spray Stain.
The sentiment is from Wendy's Art and You stamp set, stamped in black Archival ink and
embossed with clear embossing powder.
I added the bee at the top - one of Wendy's Blossom Bucket Range.
I really enjoyed making this, I think I may just have to crack open a few other
Art Part packages and use them now!
I am entering this into Creative Carte Blanche's Blossoms and Bookpages challenge.
Edited: I have just noticed that the Funkie Junkie Boutique is offering an extra discount
of 15% off Wendy Vecchi stamps, in their Friday Focus this week. Linda's prices are always
discounted anyway, so this makes buying Wendy's stamps even better!
As always, thanks for looking!
Hugs, Anne xx
