...Morning! Aha! Tricked ya... tis me, Hels... you know... the one that goes off at a tangent and waffles incessantly... well, Wendy has let me loose on her Blog so I can show you what I have been making... and today is the debut of Marci's Pad!
I used an offcut of mountboard for the base and started by stamping the Stampotique Welcome Door and then masking this over so I could add Distress Inks for the background colour... I used Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Faded Jeans, Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and then edged with Chipped Sapphire. The door was then watercoloured in with Pumice Stone DI and then I add a generous layer of Rock Candy Cracklepaint over the top of it. I made a little banner for the top of the piece, using an offcut of cardstock and freehand cutting some scallops... then doodling on them and adding Glossy Accents for a bit of dimension.
Marci, Kitty and Two Sticks were stamped onto cardstock... Two Sticks had the doodling treatment as I made some petals as a head-dress... I then coloured them all in with Distress Inks and a waterbrush. I used Word to generate a little plaque for the door and a little name tag for Kitty... these were printed and then popped onto more mountboard, I added rusty wire thru them and coloured them with Spiced Marmalade. To fill in the background a little, I stamped a flourish from a Paper Artsy HotPick set. Finally, I added more rusty wire to make a hangy bit for the piece. Blimey, I cannot believe I have managed to not waffle on and take up your time LOL Thanks for looking and... all the gorgeous Stampotique stamps, inks etc are all available from The Stamp Attic.
