Monday Morning Greetings,
Sarah here (live from my Holland holiday home) with new creative musings for both you and Simon Says Stamp & Show, where it's all about Mr. T's techniques. I immediately dived into my Grungestuff goodies with a mission to prove Flowers can have attitude with my double layered Grungeboard cuff!
Grungepaper and Grungeboard. Strong yet flexible with an ability to take on colour and texture. So therefore an ideal substrate for some wearable art methinks! I started out by cutting a strip of Grungepaper with deckle scissors, inked it up with Brushed Corduroy and then embossed it with the Victoria folder. I emphasized the detail with more ink and a touch of Black Soot.
Tattered Florals flower is cut from Grunge paper. Firstly I inked it up with Brushed Corduroy, painted on Paper Artsy crackle medium and then applied a mix of white and tan paints from Claudine's Studio Line. I added a bit more Distress inks to the petal tips and stamped some script with a Wendy Vecchi stamp. Forgot to say the inside is painted with fabby Claudine's Traditional Tan paint for protection and the whole thing sealed with her Matt Medium.
The flower is finished off with an Idea-ology centre and an antique upholstery stud. You can just see the hitch fastener on the right which which is used to close the cuff. The cuff needed something extra to balance out the design and give it a it more oomph, so I salvaged a chain and tassel from an old necklace. I threaded it through the eyelets so it hangs in a curve and voilà! A tad more attitude!
blog. I really hope you'll join in the challenge and share your arty makes! There's a $50 prize and the elite Top Three Tiara out there!
I hope you like the cuff and feel inspired to create your own. I'd love to hear from you so feel free to drop me a line.
Thanks as always for taking the time to be here. Enjoy your week...!
