Hello everyone, today sees the second of this month's posts from our Guest Design Team member Brenda Weatherill. She has created a beautiful project using the individual stamp Katya, from our latest release of Russian stamps.
My starting point was a primed 8" x 8" wooden frame with a removable canvas central panel. I painted the canvas with deep pink, purple and gold acrylic paints and once dry, stamped the Katya image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder. I then used gold paint to highlight areas of the image.
Next the frame was given a base coat of the same pink and purple paints, then random areas were covered with crackle glaze, dried, and a coating of light lilac paint plus some of the darker colours were added here and there with an almost dry brush. I also stamped some added crackle with the Large Crackle Background stamp and a gold pigment ink.
Across the bottom of the frame, I stamped a church from the Silhouette Palaces stamp set, and another from the Babushka stamp set, and heat embossed both with detail gold embossing powder. Along the top of the frame, I stencilled some vines and butterflies, and brushed them with mica powder.
