This week I am using the Leafy Background stamp and MDF Frame from Creative Expressions to create a dimensional piece of art.
Peeled Paint Distress Paint and the edges have been sanded and Potting Soil Archival Ink applied to the edeges. I have also added random background stamping using the background stamp from Tim Holtz Classics 9 Stamp Set.
Bitty Blossom to the centre of my frame, adding Golden Light Gilding Wax to the petals. For added dimension I have also included Metal Leaf Embellishments.
Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I have added natural twine around each aperture for added texture. The butterfly in the centre of two of the panels is from Taylored Expressions Discover Your Wings Stamp Set. I have stamped the butterfly onto green card using Potting Soil Archival Ink and then dipped it into hot Beeswax which I have melted in a Melt Pot using a Project Pan. I have then applied Golden Light Gilding Wax over the Beeswax to add highlights to the wings.
Black Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel poured into the cutter. Once cool, remove the heart from the stamp and then highlight the fabulous dimension and texture with Gilding Wax. Remember to always apply Perfect Medium to your stamp before pouring hot UTEE, this acts as a release agent.
