MMM or My Mess Monday!



There is a craft table under there somewhere...I swear : )
I've been working on a few projects, and because I've been time-poor, I haven't put things away as I usually like to do...instead, my crafting area has shrunk to a tiny clearing, but no more, I just had a little clean up, and I thought as a reward I would do a couple of projects...I have so many UFOs (unfinished objects for the uninitiated) but new projects are so much more fun, right?
Here's project No 1 for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog, the criteria being to show some depth...



I've used a Collections chipboard thingy (cabinet card ?), some brown acrylic paint, Distress ink (tumbled glass).     The little girl is one of Tim Holtz images, stamped onto acetate with StaZon ink (jet black)  which I had also coloured with alcohol inks (currant and ginger) as well as some viridian acrylic paint, and a coat of white acrylic for the underside.     The "doors" are held in place by some TH tissue tape, and I added a little wc paper painted with Twinks H2O (ginger peach), and a scrap of cotton lace (from Craft Queen)     The word is a stamp (from my scraps box)
I hope I have made it on time for this challenge...
I'll be back shortly, in the meantime, smile, it makes others wonder what you've been up to LOL
