Russian Tryptich (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying the projects shared by my Design Team mates showcasing the fabulous new stamps that were aired on the recent TV shows on Hochanda. If you caught the shows, you will have seen the project that I am going to share with you today.

To create my project, I covered a wooden tryptich with pale pink acrylic paint, and I then stamped Katya and the Russian Floral Egg onto some pale scrapbook paper, using brown ink. I stamped the Large Crackle Background over the top using second generation stamping, as I did not want the crackle stamp to overpower the images. I used the same brown ink as before. I coloured the images with pencils, choosing a fairly muted colour palette, in keeping with an old religious icon that you might find in a church or museum. I added some brown shading around the edges of each section, just with the edge of a pencil, before adhering each section to the tryptich.

I covered the back of the tryptich with a very pretty serviette, using a matte medium adhesive. I chose a design that looked very ornate with gold swirls and a dark base, as I wanted quite a mediaeval feel to the design.

I added gilding wax to the edges of the triptich in shades of green and gold to give an older feel to the piece.

I hope that my project will give you some ideas for using these beautiful stamps, not just for home decor pieces, but for your card making too. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  3. This is a real WOW creation Judith and the colours just muted enough to give it the feeling of age, and the stamps are so perfect for this and the back is as beautiful as the front. x
