Hello everyone, it seems like Autumn has appeared and hope you're all OK in this rather wet, windy and chilly weather we have in the UK at the moment. Don't know about you but I'm wearing layers of woollies already!
It's my turn today over at the Studio 12 Creative Team and I have a piece of artwork to show you that the Picknix Collection 2 CD - Gingerbread Twist is not just for Christmas as you'll see from my creation below.
wanted to make something to give as a gift to a family member featuring
my favourite vintage photo of my much missed Mum taken around 1950 when
she was 21 years of age. I printed the photo out on to canvas for a
soft look to the gorgeous sepia tones.
I printed out the soft
beige holly paper together with the stunning heart and lace
embellishments on antique beige parchment card for a soft textured
effect and you'd never guess when printed that it is actually Christmas
I cut the paper to fit the chipboard and distressed the
edges with my new favourite craft tool - an emery board. This gives a
lovely rolled edge perfect for inking and is easier to control than a
I then cut out the embellishments and inked them
with beige and brown inks to add to the vintage effect. I layered the
lace on to the base with some brown gingham ribbon peeping through
underneath some a touch of stronger colour.
I die cut a panel from
a scrap of the lovely gingery polka dot paper from the CD and added the
trimmed photo. I stamped an embellishment from the top on a further
scrap of the same paper with my favourite flourish stamp from the Daisy Doodles stamp set
(worth a look for the great variety of images in the set) and embossed
it with Ranger Weathered Wood embossing powder before cutting it out. As
you can see, stamping it on the same paper makes it look part of the
panel really well.
I added the inked heart and some vintage buttons from my collection tied with cream embroidery floss.
a great day and keep warm.
Hugs, Fliss xx
