We have a new challenge theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. For the next fortnight we are asking you to Mask It. We keep rules to a minimum at FSC but please include stamping on your entry and sorry, no digi’s allowed. Every challenge is sponsored and to read the details of this fortnight’s prize just click the link above. Also while you are there you can view the amazing DT samples from my DT sisters.
My DT sample uses Oxford Impressions stamps, Soul of the Rose was my first ever Oxford Impressions plate I purchased, it really is the most beautiful plate of art stamps and wish is from Sleigh Bells. Below are links to the Oxford Impressions’ store for both plates.
Soul of the Rose
This post was drafted and set as a scheduled post days ago but with the tragic events that took place on Friday and when I was looking at this image I wanted to write a few heartfelt words however, what is there to write that can make sense of such horrific events, events that have not only shocked and touched the hearts of Americans but all of us no matter where we live in this world of ours.
As I had in mind the palest of colours for this altered canvas I chose not to paint the stamped image (a beautiful reproduction of the Luini painting) however I did want this canvas to dance when it came in contact with light so I added dashes of glass glitter to the stamped image and beyond as the lace also has glass glitter added and you can see the use of it on the metal frame.
Before I get too ahead of myself you might be asking yourselves about the Mask It part, well it is the background where I made use of Crafty Individuals Elegant Swirls set (stencil/mask) and molding paste. To add shimmer and sparkle I added a mix of tinting medium and glass glitter.The canvas in full. A most delicate shade of pink painted onto the canvas before I applied the molding paste. All embellishments were either white/creamy white or I dry-brushed with Gesso We look forward to viewing your Mask It entries at FSC, whether it be cards, tags, art journal pages, anything goes!
Just to finish by saying Thank You for all your visits and comments this past week especially at such a busy time of the year and when I posted probably a bit more than normal add to that I have fallen behind with catching-up on your artful creations, it is much appreciated.
