Gothic Arch Challenge



For the last few months I have been taking part in the Gothic Arch Challenge  at UK Stampers. Gothic Arch refers to the shape it does not have to be gothicky (thank goodness)This months theme is “in stitches” I wondered what I would create, so I looked through my old wooden stamps, and came across these treasures. A lovely teddy and bunny with stitches on them. I decided as they had been packed away for such a long time, they needed a good wash so I washed them and hung them on the washing line to drip and dry!

I used glossy accents to add drips of water falling from the furry friends.They are quite difficult to see in the photo but there lots of them there.I used green flowersoft on the branches, and also added some faux stitches around the edges. 

The foam stamps are coming away from the wood, so I am undecided if I should remove them from the wood to save space or glue them back on... 

I would also like to enter my In Stiches  Gothic Arch into That’s Crafty Stitch In Time Challenge

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope all is going well with you xx

Fairy Bubbles

 
I was wheeling through the forest yesterday and I saw some little bubbles sparkling in the distance.I wonder where they were coming from.....

 
I added lots of glitter, and glossy accents on the bubbles, not sure if they show up very well in the photo.

 
I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to create this card and lots of watercolours!

Thank you for visiting today, Fairy Hugs xx

An Apple Or Two A Day For Bernie

Do you have a folder of backgrounds which you have created but haven't used? I know I do so I pulled a colourful one of them out to use as my base for this picture.

I firmly taped my elephant stencil down with some masking tape. I swept some texture paste over the stencil with a palette knife, I wanted to give the elephant a cracked rough elephant type skin so I used a sponge (an inexpensive make up sponge) and pressed it into the paste and then quickly lifted it up. I have never used crackle paint, but you could probably create the same appearance with that.

When the paste was completely dry. I put the stencil back over the paste and carefully stuck it down. I used Rangers Cool Graphite dye ink to colour the elephant. I really should give him a name.... I think I will call him Bernie. I dabbed a sponge into the ink and dabbed it all over until Bernie was a glorious grey colour.

Now Bernie is often hungry so I quickly painted him a few apples, and coated them in glossy accents. When nice and dry I cut them all out.

I stamped a bird on a little piece of card and cut it out and sat him on Bernie's back. I added few green stamped branches and leaves, and glued the apples amongst them.Now Bernie is ready to have a feast!
