So, make sure you join us this month, for this gorgeous challenge........
Don't you just love this color combo!! Very wintry in feel, in updated colors to give a sophisticated look! Here's my take on the challenge.......
Father & Son
I started with Fabscraps papers in pinks and gray/greens, for my background. a bit of tearing, here and there, and some punching with Martha Stewart's Gothic Arch (?) punch.
I added a bit of Liquitex Modeling Paste through Donna Downey's Turkish Grunge stencil. My title is American Craft Thickers which I embossed with Queen Sheba's Silver.
The flowers (I Am Roses Gardenias, Roses and Mini Roses, Prima leaves and Petaloo Vine) were treated to some Starburst Sprays in Shabby Turbine Teal, Golden Lump o'Coal ( discontinued), Steampunk Sepia and Pretty in Pink Pink. The Dusty Attic bird cage was first painted with Liquitex Basics in Titanium White, and then oversprayed with Frozen Jack Frost.
The chipboard frame is from my stash (unknown manufacturer), was left naked and then sprayed with Shabby Turbine Teal and Golden Lump o'Coal. The base of the frame, was painted white, sprayed with Frozen Jack Frost, stamped with a Hero Arts stamp, and heat embossed with Magic Moon Pearls (discontinued). Now, I know what you're going to say....Magic Moon Pearls is clear....well, I hadn't cleaned off my stamp from the last time, so there was a bit of brown ink left on it. Not what I wanted, but the unexpected results are striking!
For the Prima resin clock pieces, I first sprayed with Golden Lump o'Coal, heat set, and then embossed with Magic Moon Pearls. After my pieces had cooled off, I sprayed them with water to remove the excess Starburst Spray. The awesome part of this, is that the embossing powder, trapped the SS underneath, giving it a very shabby/grungy look!!
