Boulder Bling


Hi everyone hope you are all busy crafting away, I have done a piece today 
that I am going to enter into the challenge over on the Paper Artsy blog.


I did this panel with Jo Firth Christmas stamp's and a sweet poppy snowflake
 stencil.


The project that got me to make this was the gift folder with 
Sarah Neumann and electrica stamps.


I really liked the colours in this post so I thought I would do a post with 
these colour's in mind.


Thats how it started and then as with all my pieces it took on a world of its own.


As with all of my pieces I added texture and I stamped the boulders 
onto tissue paper.


I put texture paste through the sweet poppy snowflake stencil.


The holders were painted from behind in hint of mint and snowflake


I put clear embossing powder over the paint and heat set.


This gave the impression of snow balls melting i quite liked the effect.


Onto the snowflake's I painted with watered down plum and marlin.


Also turquoise was used but they were all diluted down so as not to overwhelm
the illusion of snow.


I swiped the slate over the texture paste that had been put down the sides.


I then swiped with hint of mint.


I added bits of bling from my stash.


treasure gold whitefire was used to highlight the texture.


I hope you all enjoyed my post.


Here is the link back to the original post and colour scheme that I used


Thank you all for popping by please feel free to leave a comment or two,
as this is food for my art.
Cheers Dee x
