Welcome to Day 5, the last day of the November Stamp Release Blog Hop here at STAMPlorations! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.
Today, we’re putting the spotlight on Trendy Leaves. We’ll be picking one commenter to win this set so leave a comment here and on the rest of the STAMPlorations girls’ posts for a chance to win the set.
And here’s my project…
Well, what can I say, I got a little carried away … and it was very easy to make. For the picture I blended different shades of yellow, stamped my leaves in green, the sentiment from the TYPOGRAPHIA Encouragement set in brown and highlighted a couple of words using Promarkers. I then painted this little frame, thanks to my friend Sue, first with white gesso and then with Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics. Once dry I applied a generous coat of clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and left it to dry. In the meantime I stamped and fuzzy cut my leaves and gave them too the crackle treatment. Once dry I swiped my frame and leaves with a little brown ink to highlight the cracks, added some further highlights using Treasure Gold and assembled as shown.
Just a couple more pictures to show off the finished frame …
Of course all the new, gorgeous, versatile and fabulous stamp sets are available as a bundle during our Blog Hop at the reduced price of $50, that’s 15% off the normal price. This offer will last until 25th November, for more details click here.
This is it from me for today, back again tomorrow with some more inspiration.
Enjoy the Hop!!! 🙂
