Hi guys, just popping by with a quick post to show the card I made for hubby for Valentines, soppy eh?
The beautiful heart is by Scrapiniec and is a double layer, which you build up, the clock is by Dusty Attic and i left both of them in their natural colour just adding a mini pearl in the centre of the clock,
one red rose and a couple of hand cut hessian leaves finish it off,
The gorgeous paper came from love to craft and create and is called the cricket on the hearth - 04,
Monika has such gorgeous products in her online store, do pop over and take a peek!!
beautiful papers, chipboards and embellishments too, just don't blame me if you end up spending!!!
Hopefully I should be back on Tuesday with my first post, but have you noticed my blog has been a little quiet, I had to have an operation on my face, with a few stitches and the darn thing has bled twice so it had left me quiet tired and I didn't want to put too much pressure on it either,
I had the stitches out yesterday though and all seems well !!!!
anyway back to my post, lol
here is a card I made before my op using one of the gorgeous chipboard windows from
Love To Craft And Create, lace and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl,
Pop on over to see the gorgeous products Monika has in her shop and check out the new design team too,
Hugs Liz xx
The picture made me think of rustic, old flaking paint buildings so I'm hoping this is what it looks like, the wall area I added a couple of small pieces of masking tape on the canvas then painted it with some acrylic fluid paint, then i took the tape away and it left a fab distressed look, the grid rectangles I coated with a layer of stippled texture sand paste to give a rough texture to look like stone,
The roof was made using a distressed sequin mask with modeling paste onto water colour paper then I painted over the top with some Paynes grey fluid acrylic, when dry I rough cut out the shape and fixed it onto the canvas with some 3D pads to give a little depth,
I painted the fence and the cogs with some of the fluid paint and a little tinting base added in various amounts to get the different colours, I added some crackle paste over the top of the fence and larger cog and some texture sand over the one in front,
I've made this to brighten up a dull wet day in my craft room, lol
