Firstly I want to say a big thank you to PaperArtsy as I won the last challenge topic 13 TIME. I couldn't believe my look. I haven't been entering the challenges for long but I had been reading it for months before I plucked up courage to enter! With the prize money I picked out 2 JOFY stamp sets then put the money to ELB22 so I had to use them all for this challenge, lol. There are loads more that I would like to own but will have to build up my stash slowly. Leandra was really helpful when I rang in my order and we had a natter.
Next day my stamps arrived! Yippee!
For the base of my design I stuck different types of ripped up pieces of paper with mod podge onto thick card. I got the inspiration for this technique from Anneke de Clerck .
Next I dry brushed white paint on top.
I applied watered down fresco paints to the top of the canvas and let them drip down. Doing them one at a time, allowing them to dry before applying the next colour.
I stamped quite a few the mushroom n flowers on tissue so I had plenty to choose from then embossed them with glitter wow powder.
Coloured them in with Fresco paints and fussy cut them out. If I had painted within the lines I could have roughly cut around them which would have been much easier!
I cut the background in half as my plan is to eventually make them into cards. Once I had decided which stamped images I wanted I applied mod podge on the background and gently placed the tissue down ( I did rip a few so it was a good job there was plenty ) then applied mod podge over the top.
I embossed some flowers on heat resistant acetate then added clear glitter glue on the reverse side. Once dry I cut them out and stuck them on with for a 3D effect then used teal PVA glue for the centres. I got the idea from Lauren Hatwell.
The flowers and mushrooms needed grounding. So on the left one I applied grunge paste, once dry I dry brushed green over it.
On the right one I mixed green in with the grunge paste. Then on both of them I used alcohol pens to give depth.
Hopefully it looks like grass!!!
Stamped around the top edge of both backgrounds with teal .
Ruffed up the edges and distressed with ink.
Lastly I couldn't forget my favourite stamp the caterpillar, stamped him with and coloured with paint, clear glitter and 3D glue.
