Hi everyone it's Hazel's turn to choose our theme for the latest challenge over at Craft-Room and she's picked Trees and/or Leaves. Our sponsors for the challenge are Crafty Individuals.
We have a special guest designer for September - Annie, pop over to her blog: Curious'n Crafty Treasures and say hello! My sample was one of those pieces that just 'happened'. I had the background already from a previous crafty play session, I can't really remember exactly how I did it, but I know it involved a Gelli plate printed background on black paper, followed by some dye inks sprayed over a stencil.
So I started with that and decided I didn't want to cover it up because I liked it too much (even if I do say so myself :-) ) so I went with a UTEE Twinchie, behind which I added some skeleton leaves. I used clear UTEE and added pearl violet and gold embossing powders to the top layer before stamping into it while still warm and liquid with a leaf stamp (from ebay, no idea of manufacturer). I added some touches of rub n buff, a little leaf charm and some twine.
Can't wait to see what you all create - I also must apologise for not getting round all the entries this week, it's great to see so many of you joining us but the week ran out on me and I didn't have time to visit !! Sorry....will try harder !!
I'm sharing my card here-
Vintage Stamping - From Your Garden (I don't have a garden so hopefully it can be from someone else's too!!)
Happy Crafting...Esther xx
