So this is what I have come up with, She is one of my favourite paintings, she is called Rose.I have made this to enter a few challenges. Over at Haunted design house their challenge is 'Pass the distressing please', and Simon says stamp and show is 'one for the boys,And smudgy antics is embellish it.
Hopefully I have met all the criteria. Now a quick rundown of what i did.
First I distress stained the canvas and coated in wax, I then stamped onto some grease proof kitchen paper the TH stamp and added it to the canvas along with the tape and some other torn papers, all
applied with wax.
The picture frame started as a plain wood frame and I used one of Andy Skinners time worn techniques to make it look like pitted metal, you will have to do the workshop to find out how.Rose has been cut out and added to a stamped up piece of card that has been coloured and aged with distress inks and ranger archival, the frame was then filled with glossy accents to give it a behind glass look. The number plaque embellishment was a tando product that has been stained and distress embossed, the number is from TH and has been coloured with alcohol ink.
Finally the flowers, not tried to do flowers befor, These were from a pack of plain cream flowers, they have been colour blended with 5 different distress inks and then over stamped with the same big stamp from TH papillon stamp and then some ornate brads.
I am actually quite pleased with how this has turned out and I will be using the melting pot again soon.
I will also enter this into the Poisoned Peas challenge, Its a wicked step mum challenge,This is the step mum looking back at an old picture from her childhood, helps explain why she is so wicked now ;)
And also at Crafty Cardmakers where their theme is distressing.
Sorry if this was to much blurb, I am still figuring out what is best re presentation.
Would like to say again thank you everyone who visits,follows and comments, its unreal.
