This is my take on SARAH's Gothic arch challenge #11, paint, I actually got it done this past Monday, but I hadn't had a chance to photograph it until today. I started by covering my arch shape with an old book page, & giving that a light coating of MMs (lemon)acrylic paint with a dry brush. I then used a piece of bubble wrap & some red & orange acrylic paint for the background. I let it dry, & then stamped the Stampers Anon/Tim Holtz image of the umbrella man using Archival's ink, & covered the image with clear embossing powder, doing the same with the beautiful quote (an old one from Studio Astarte), & with the arch edges. Another arch done & dusted : )
& here is my entry for the current monthly challenge at INKURABLE STAMPERS. This month, SARAH has chosen a great colour combination for us to play with, & one I use LOTS!!!!
I started by working out my own template to make the pouch, to which I added a window by using one of my nesties, & covered the section with a piece of clear acetate. I then used some gold ink & a gold pen to do the edges, adding the Collections scroll, & the butterflies (from DARKROOM DOOR), which were stamped with Archival ink onto some sraps of previously painted (with purple & lime acrylic paint) watercolour paper, covering them with DM. I finished the piece with a word from a DD word strip, & some ribbon. I then got to work on a STAMPBORD tile, 3.5"x 2.5" ATC sized :) I used all DD stamps from various sets, Adirondack ink (lettuce) for the background & Archival ink for the images. If you've never had a chance to play with a Stampbord tile, have a look HERE for the basics, & HERE at my tutorial (sorry, I couldn't help myself LOL!)
I edged the tile with a gold pen, added some pearls & a word from a DD word strip. I really enjoyed doing this project, & it was made so much easier since I purchased one of THESE. I didn't measure a thing, I only worked using an ATC as a template, & guesstimated how much depth I needed. I think I'll be making a few of these in the not too distant future :)
As always, thanks for stopping by, & don't forget to join in & create something :)
