Time Travellers Tag Card

A Size 10 tag card from me today for the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges which is called 'Sentimental'. 

Tim Holtz Time Traveller stamps
broken china, walnut stain and picket fence distress paints (DPs)
brushed pewter distress stain (DS)
black and brown archival ink
dried marigold, peacock feathers, chipped sapphire, frayed burlap, walnut stain and black soot distress inks (DIs)
sentiment - Tim Holtz
Ideaology and charm

The background is a blend of the DPs, spritzed and heat dried then over stamped with the cogs in both brushed pewter DS and black archival ink plus the suitcases stamped in brown and watercoloured in with DIs.

The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set

The gentlemen have been stamped in black and also watercoloured with the DIs, cut out and edged with walnut stain.

The clock has been made from the pocket watch embossing folder.

Once complete the tag was tied with folded tissue tape.

I feel I am really getting my eye back into painting as I loved watercolouring the two gents and  have inspired myself to do more lol.

Maybe I will see you over at FSC if you have a sentiment on your project over the next fortnight, I would love to see you there.

I hope your weekend is going well.

Have fun.

Quintessentially English

Time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week's theme is 'Red, White and Blue', so I have gone for a London themed canvas board.

I started by cutting chipboard to size and covering it with artist canvas, painted it with Maimeri gesso and left it to dry thoroughly.
I stamped Indigo Blu images onto tissue paper and added, gave it a blast of heat and then covered with a thin coat of gesso. Using a variety of London themed stamps I coloured them up using PPs and adhered them to the board and then added some blue PP to Tim Holtz picket fence distress crackle paint and used a palette knife to add it to the edges.

Once dry I added more gesso using a credit card  and through some masks, finishing with some doodles.

I loved making this piece and I will certainly be experimenting with making more canvas boards to create mixed media projects.

Your Creativity Store is our regular sponsor and will provide a PanPastel starter set as the winner's prize.

Have a wonderful Sunday and hopefully some creative time for yourself.

Take care.
