SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges New/forgotten stash.

Hi Folks its that time again! Team B are showing their 
pieces for this month challenge.
New/forgotten stash.
I started go with my media board and applied silver embossed
card to the base of the board. 
I then applied a graphite paste to the top of the board
to which I applied my new stash of mica powders.
For the heart I used foam board which i painted with
Deco art titan buff and stamped using Andy skinners 
i distressed the edges with raw umber and archival ink
finishing off with wire and die cut cogs.
Finally I added my forgotten stash the wings and crown.
Thank you everyone for popping by and I 
hope to see you all join in with us.
Cheers Dee x

Laurel Burch From #Stampendous

Hi everyone I have for you today a post card showing what 
you can do with the new collection of Laurel Burch 
stamps from #Stampendous.
Okay a slightly different style from me but a very vibrant 
one.
I started by stamping the image from the New Laurel Burch wild 
horses stamp with momento ink on a watercolour post card.
I coloured the horses in using Zig clean colour brushes and 
lots of water.
Those of you who are familiar with my work will know that this 
is right out of my comfort zone!
I followed the colours and then just drenched the card in water
so it all flowed and the colours blended would you believe
that one of the horses was green!
Once i was happy a little touch of gold to finish the fantasy
Yeah loved it!!!! Think I might just get into this.
Thanks for popping by I hope you have 
enjoyed it as much as i did creating it. 

Cheers Dee x

Christmas Butterfly over at SASPC


Happy Christmas everyone! I have my Christmas post for SASPC 
for you today.


I have used #boozy bear Chipboard pieces which I have decorated 
with a mix if #Deco Art media line and their Americano
 chalk based paints along with #Stampendous 
glitters for a Christmas feel.


I used Archival ink to stamp the clocks I then coloured them with Zig 
water colour pens to colour in the two clocks I washed with 
water till I was happy with the effect.


Once happy with the colouring of the clocks I then coated both 
with crackle glaze. Finally when the clocks were dry
i gave them a coat of black antiquing cream which
I knocked back this highlights the cracks.


To give the Harlequin chipboard pieces from boozy bear I painted
them with a coat of Payne's grey first followed by a coat of
Glue I then used the iridescent crystal glitter along with 
a pale blue glitter. 


The final stage was to coat the chipboard in Deco art media gloss
 varnish. The center piece of the chip board clock was treated 
in the same way. The outer chipboard was given a coat
of paynes grey followed by quinacridone gold.


I used watch parts to assemble a butterfly shape to which I attached 
the wings which I stamped in versfine black ink and clear
embossed prior to colouring in with Zig pens.


For the base I used a Tando creative tag which I painted with Deco 
art Raw umber media fluid acrylic this was given a coat of
weather wood followed by a coat of white everlasting 
americno chalk paint.


Washes of Raw Umber, Prussian Blue hue, Quinacridone Gold
Once I was happy with the effects I coated it all with media
gloss varnish.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Finnabair inspired canvas reworked

 Hi everyone hope you are all okay and having a crafty time
preparing for Christmas.
.
This was the original which had a lot of layers and the 
base had a translucent.
So i gessoed it all with white gesso and allowed to dry.
 Next came spraying with Lyndy's stamp gang moonshine sprays.
 Followed by a bit of dry brushing with a mix of Deco arts Prussian
 blue hue mixed with media tinting base.
 Layers of white gesso were dry brushed to highlight the swirls on the
canvas base. 
 The photo below shows how it lifts the swirls off the canvas.
 The following photo's show the dry brushing, over the main focal point
of the canvas.
Another photo. 
 I really enjoyed altering this. Work had asked me to do a piece for
our office wall so it will now be hanging up on our art wall. 
I hope you have all enjoyed my piece today please feel free
to let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee. x
