Thank you everyone who played along with our Lazy Summer theme last week at Crafty Catz. I had a great time visiting you and I can tell you that there was a lot of things that I like to do during summer.
This weeks them over at
is set by our lovely Ingrid
She challenge us to
That means we want you to use something that normally would end up in the bin. You can use it as a embellishment or up cycle it to for a new purpose. So let´s see what you come up with....
Our lovely sponsor this week is
PRIZE ......$15 GC to the Fred She Said Store
I have used some old stamps like these
I then used them to make a background. I first used Mod Podge to glue some old book pages to my cardstock. I then coloured my piece with distress stains - vintage photo and peeled paint.
When it dried I glued the stamps on top of it. I then put more stain and gesso on top of it to make it blend. I used embossing enamel powder to make it bling and add texture.
I embossed a sentiment from AC and two snails from Magnolia with black powder.
I used a black frame from my local shop and then added a stamp from ADFD that I coloured with ProMarkers and Faber Castel pencils. I also added a lot of pretty flowers.
This is what it looked like when finished
Hope you liked it!
