SASPC Clock Man by Dee

Hi everyone Dee here a bit late with my post soz!

Its time again for team B to produce their projects for this
months challenge.

I used lots of Tim's stamps and stencils this time as I 
hadn't managed to play with them.

As alway I used the lovely Deco art paint in shades of grey and 
burnt umber.

Black modelling paste through a Tando stencil over the numbers
Stencil from Tim.

This clock was done on a Tando circle covered in deco art's crackle
glaze once dry antiquing cream finished it of.

 Then finally a bit of modeling paste through 
the tando flourish stencil.

The smaller clock was used to form the face of the 
clock man.

I hope you have all enjoyed this piece and pop over to the blog 
to checkout the teams inspiration or even join in
check out some of the amazing entries.

I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.

that's it for today folk's!

Stampendous October Catty Ornate Vintage Key

Hi everyone Dee here with one of my Stampendous October Catty pieces
I used the lovely CRS5093 Cling Lilac  stamp set.

Along with that I also used the lovely embossing enamels 
which I then  tripple embossed the butterfly's
from the Lilac stamp set.
Lots of lovely Deco Art products were used to create 
the worn appearance of this piece.
Firstly I painted it with Paynes grey pior to dabbing on
 weather wood randomly. Once dry I painted with the
crackle paint.
Washes of prussian blue hue were then applied in very watery 
form as this is a very powerful colour. 
I used chunky embossing powder to age the key in certain
area's along with beads and antiquing cream.
Why not pop over to the Stampendous site
and see some of the teams peeks
at the new catelogue.

Products used

  1. Stampendous stamps:-  CRS5093 Cling Lilac  stamp set.
  2. Stampendous embossing powders in chunky gold. 
  3. Deco Art:-  Weatherwood,
  4. Deco Art Media line fluid acrylics in the following colours Paynes grey, Burnt umber, Quinacridone gold, Prussian blue hue watered down. 
  5. Brown and black antiquing cream mixed together.

SASPC Challenge for September

Its time for my SASPC challenge post. I used a Tando media 
board for my base which I gave a base coat of 
Americana chalk finish paint custom mixed.
I stamped a Carabelle-studio art stamp
onto the board in black archival ink.

I applied Deco Art media crackle paste around the edges 
and used Prussian blue to colour over once dry.
A swipe of Pewter treasure gold to the dry 
crackle paste.
Boozy bear chipboard pieces were painted with silver
media line paint.

I hope you like the project don't forget if you join in you
 have a chance of wining lovely Deco art & 
Boozy Bear goodies.

SASPC Summer Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely relaxing summer.
  I am trying to remember how I created this piece
as I made it a while back for Ministry Of
I used a Tando set Andy Skinner Industrial Elements
I started with giving the key hole plate a
base coat with Deco Arts Paynes grey
I followed this with crackle paint I assembled the
bolts and treated them with a coat of paint.
Once crackled I used patina antiquing cream
to highlight area's.
I tripple embossed andy's clock from his steampunk
stamp set.
I can't remember what stamp I used for the centre piece
I think its a Kazelkraft stamp.
An open clock was treated the same as the key plate
and attached to the back.  A stamped clock face
 that had glossy accents applied was cut in two some
& small watch part's were dropped into
 the wet accents.
I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.

Well that's all for today folks please feel free to let me know what you think and don't forget to pop over and see what the rest of the team have made. Why not join in with us and play for a chance
to win goodies from both Deco Art and Boozy Bear.
