Hope you're having a
good day. I'm hoping
for a seriously good
crafting day - I see the
UFO's are settling back
into my Craft Room and
we can't have that..........
Helen Chilton is back with
us today and oh my, does
she have a super fabulous
project to share using a
Kraft bag and Kay Carley's
new PaperArtsy stamps.
I'm cutting out a window in one side
of the Kraft bag using a
Sizzix Framelit (any shape) and I've put in
the long thin plate to cut on
If you haven't got this type of plate
just put your die on the inside of the bag,
cutting side downwards - a bit more fiddly,
but it still works.
Next stamp your images from Kay Carley
sets 05, 06 and 07
Paint them in using Frescos, going over the lines.
Then add some South Pacific blue
and give shape to the flowers in white.
You can see here how the white paint gives the flower form.
Paint the spikey flower in Pixie Dust going
over the black again.
Add extra colour with coloured pencils
and then highlights and shading.
Cut acetate to fit the window, mask
and start stamping in black.
Here's a close up - I've stamped the first few
in grey and then stamped over the top
in black to add depth.
Here's the back"
Thank you Helen for a beautiful
This would make a lovely present
filled with toiletries or a maybe a
selection of seed bags for a gardener.
What would you put in it?
