When Crafty Individuals recently released new stamps, the first I inked up was CI-451 Inky Border. Alongside a That’s Crafty white/greyboard panel, a couple of their Dinky Stencils (some Dinky Stencils are now being stocked at Crafty Individuals), PaperArtsy Infusions and some other bits ‘n’ pieces, I made this Mixed Media panel.
I’ve no doubt that some of you will have a Crafty Individuals Image Book amongst your stash. It was one of those books I dipped into for the image on this panel.A shabby grouping is the focal on this panel.I am sure it was lovely Alison Hall who sent me the fabric flower die cut. For it to tie in with the colours, I dipped a brush into Infusions to stain the white fabric. A rhinestone adds some old style glamour. Infusions also stained the seam binding and lace scraps.Now, I know this flower has seen better days but for some reason I’d held onto it, for a very long time. It made me think that she has possibly kept such a flower, dusty with age and crumbling to the touch but on sight it makes her heart swell with bittersweet memories.Detail photographs of the stamping on the background with Dinky Stencil, selecting the word Enchanted.The Infusions can bring such a dreamy air to a project
and I like when it pools around stencilled areas.
A reminder that the May Challenge of Anything Goes is underway at the Crafty Individuals challenge blog. Details for entering your artwork can be seen HERE.
Many thanks for your visit.
