Over on the Artistic Stamper blog there is a challenge to basically make anything, as long as you use either a Magnolia or Stitchels stamp on it.
Well seeing as were still in July and the other challenge was Xmas in July i decided to combine the 2 and have made a hanging decoration.
I used 3 chipboard pieces from AS (as it's the mutts nuts and a bargain price to boot)
I stamped a tree (stamp also from AS) on each piece or board using peeled paint distress ink and then UTEE'ed them to create a barrier for the next stage, and also made sure a few loose bits of the UTEE were sprinkled about and melted, to give a snow like appearance.
Next i lay all 3 pieces in my spray booth... (between me and you that translates to open large pizza box! lol) I sprayed a small amount of denim colour wash, followed by lots of tattered angels moonlight glimmer mist (TOP TIP..rather than paying out for big bottles, make your own mists using distress re-inkers, perfect pearls and a little water in a mini spray bottle, works just as well and you can custom any colour you need) I then blotted off the access paint/mist with a bit of kitchen towel and left to dry.
While that was happening i then stamped the only 3 Xmas Tilda's i have onto white shrink plastic and coloured in, cut out each one and heated. Then i just popped them onto the now dried mountboard pieces, 1 for each piece using a sticky dot or 2. I threaded ribbon through holes i made using my crop-a-dile to hold each panel together and stuck another bit of ribbon to the top so the whole thing could be hung.
I know it's not much but as my MOJO is on it's hols with several of my friends MOJO's i didn't think it too bad lol
Thanks for stopping by
