Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all having a lovely Easter weekend. Today I'm sharing a project featuring the beautiful Katya. She's such a stunner I thought she deserved a pretty frame.
To decorate the plastic frame I applied gilding glue and then adding gilding flakes here and there and dusted mica powders over the rest.
I created a background with distress inks (bundled sage, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac) and overstamped using the Large Crackle Background stamp using purple chalk ink. I stamped Katya onto white stamping card and coloured her with alcohol markers. I also stamped her onto acetate with versamark and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I then cut Katya out and glued her to the background. I then cut her headdress out from the acetate and layered that up with tiny blobs of silicone glue. I added a few little gems here and there.
I then stamped the sentiment (from Artistic Expressions) with purple chalk ink on some gold vellum. I tore the strip out and rolled the edges around a cocktail stick to make a little scroll.
Here's another project made using the new Russian goodies
I took a canvas board and applied navy blue acrylic paint, with some black blended around the edges. Once that was dry I spritzed with a black glimmer mist. I made the clouds using white gesso applied with a natural sponge. I added highlights with white pearlescent acrylic paint. I took the Silhouette Palace 1 Stencil and applied black gesso. Once that was dry I added a little more of the cloudy effect along the bottom edge and some white highlights here and there.
I hope you're all enjoying the new stamps and stencils as much as we are
Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
