DREAM

Crafter's Companion have a couple of shows on Sunday 8th September at 9am and 12 noon showcasing some fabulous products from Marianne Design.
I decorated a canvas board for my first piece painting the background with Irish Cream Fresco Finish Paint and adding dimensional leaves using White Embossing Paste.
A smaller canvas has been added stamped with the Marianne Romantic Vintage Dreaming image stamped with black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Markers. I also added a piece of card to the back of the canvas giving the card a decorative edge using the Marianne Border Stitch die.
Lace has been added to give extra texture and making the canvas very tactile. VINTAGE has been added using Alpha Parts and coloured with Renaissance Gold Gilding Wax to add warmth.
Dimensional flowers have been added cut from white card using the Marianne Circle and Flower Stitch die, adding gold embellishment to the centre to add further to that opulent feel. DREAM has been added using Alpha Parts again coloured with gilding wax.
Brass keys wrapped with lace have also been added to give extra dimension and interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
