Good morning folks, its inspiration time at We love 2 Create as you've still got time to enter our Anything Creative/Mixed media Goes challenge. Not only could you be in with a chance of winning a fabby prize from our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands but each DT member is also giving away a postcard (pop over and check out everyone's artwork here, OMG I wish I could enter as my teamies have created some stunning projects!). Some of us are also giving away some extra goodies, I've got some Stampbord up for grabs so if you fancy having a play with stampbord, click here, leave a comment and you could be my lucky winner!!
For my DT project this week, I've used a stampbord ATC and a couple of stampbord dominos which i've joined with little metal hinges from my stash to create a little tryptich (never sure how to spell that lol). I got to work with lots of PanPastels, some of the gorgeous Premium Craft Brands Stamps and a versamark inkpad to create lots of depth then used my scratch tools to add highlights. I stamped and embossed the clock faces with gold embossing powder then applied PanPastel White Coarse Medium followed by a thick layer of rock candy crackle paint. I gold embossed around the edges of the stampbord and also embossed the sentiment near the top of the ATC. I gold embossed the frame on some white card coloured with my Pans and cut out the flourish to pop on the top of the center panel. To finish off I added some dots here and there with my Graph'It Gold Shake pen, this stuff is gorgeously glittery but it doesn't show up in the pic.
