Come Away With Me (FSC #26)

Hello Everyone
I had a break from the previous fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenge so it is good to be back amongst my DT sisters. This fortnight Shirley is asking us to Let’s Get Messy and Inky. We welcome all nature of art at FSC but please remember to include stamping on your entry and of course, no digis allowed. As always there is a prize up for grabs so definitely worthwhile entering the challenge.
For my DT sample I selected an 8″x8″ canvas panel as my substrate. Now you might look at the finished result and not imagine it to be very messy or inky but my hands are proof that it was!
Gesso, walnut ink (dissolved crystals), Walnut Tintz, cream and portrait pink acrylics were applied to the canvas panel before stamping. Then I applied a stunningly ornate mask to create the pattern.  From there on I applied Golden Glass Bead Gel to the edges and once hardened Antique Gold acrylic was applied.
It might seem pointless to go to such lengths to then cover up with a large panel of lace but it is worth it as the lace allows a peek to the layer below and adds depth and interest.

All stamps – Oxford Impressions – Venezia This is an absolutely stunning set of stamps.

Then it moved onto decorating the top layer of the panel.
Dyed in baths of tea and coffee:- main panel of lace and lace to trim
Dyed in bath of tea with Distress Ink Tattered Rose – seam binding
Stained with Walnut Tintz – tassel.All of the stamped images (including the man and woman) were embossed with Distress e.p. and gold e.p. then the edges had paint smeared onto them. The piece of lace also had some acrylic treatment. Seam binding dyed and tied into a shabby bow to decorate some pendants. More of the dyed lace.  A metal fan painted with acrylics. This bead (thanks Sue) reminds me of the lanterns in old style lamp posts. and a white tassel stained to co-ordinate. We look forward to viewing your Let’s Get Messy and Inky artwork – I am sure you will have lots of fun with this challenge and messy fingers!
Please visit the FSC Blog (link at top of post) to read our rules of entry and to view the incredible DT samples from the other Fashionettes.  Would you like to be a Fashionette? If yes, then there is a DT call. All details are over at the FSC Blog.
Thank you for visiting and have a lovely Sunday.
Wishes
Lynne

    Hi Lynne…wow! The background is so lush and adds so much depth to the whole piece. Brown and pink are a beautiful combination and the beauty of inks is that everything can blend in sooo well. An absolutely stunning and finely detailed piece of art. Welcome back :)))

    Nothing is ever pointless in art ! i love this masterpiece and can only image how wonderful it was to get inky and messy and create something so sublime. “The amazing layers colouring and stamping are once gagging second to non ! Thank you for sharing this amazing piece of art with us a pure joy to behold.

    Gorgeous! Just love the vintage rose colour combined with earthy walnut stain and kraft. Off to check out Oxford Impressions (I know I’ve drooled over them before, but I’m on the verge of spending some serious money now I’ve seen this!).

    OH sweet Lynne, this is another stunning piece.
    All those layers of ink and paint made a fantastic background for your beautiful stamp, and later the lace. I love your dyed lace, it is wonderful colours you make, and the faces of her and him embossed are so lovely. You are truly beautifully back .
    Warm hug- from Dorthe

    WOw- I am very visual, so really enjoy that you have included visuals here! I am taking a class or two with Donna Downey today- my first canvas ever- so will learn a bit about creating them! Yours is absolutely gorgeous- and I will stop back after my class for a re-look! I especially love the edge and the laces- and the images and the tassel………
