Raise The Curtains!
Hi everyone hope you are all well! The challenge this month over at SASPC
is Raise the curtains! why not pop over and join in the challenge.
I have never tried anything like this before I had an idea
and tried it out but wasn't happy.
Then I put the lady in her undergarments beneath the curtain
and it made it stand out.
Where as before the curtains got lost
in the background.
I used a lot of Tim's classics Stamps & the lady is an Indigo Blue Stamp.
I started with a very neutral base of pumice stone & frayed burlap distress stain
swiped on a craft mat and water sprayed white card swiped through it.
Once dry I stamped the script onto the card with black Archival ink.
I used a torn bit of an old tag to add texture & interest to the base card.
The compass is an indigo blue stamp and the one under it is a Tim Holtz stamp.
With the curtain I made it out of tissue paper that I had sprayed with distress Stains
in iced spruce and frayed burlap.
I hooked it back with a cog and arranged the folds. It was then
rubbed with treasure gold.
The permit of the curtains is lace that i had swiped with distress stains but it was quite pale
so I then used Deco Art Media paint in Raw Umber and a touch of turquoise.
This was then rubbed with treasure gold.
The indigo Blue stamp was then stamped onto black card with versa fine black
and clear embossed. Rubbed gently with treasure gold and the face and arms
painted with perfect pearls and water. Then it was wiped back.
I hope you all enjoyed my post although I did go round the houses to get
there. I Would love to hear what you think & don't forget to join in
over at SASPC.
Cheers Dee x
