I set before me a grand challenge of making a project that fit the criteria for four challenges for this week. The first was the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group challenge of making something with "clearly for art modeling film". Check! The second was the Hels Sheridan Sunday Stamper challenge of "life". Check! The third was Lisa Somerville's Blogger's Color Challenge of "black, white, & red". Check! The fourth was the Gingersnap Creation's Random Redhead Challenge of "faux technique". Check! Phew!!! That's a lot of checks, but I did it, and I totally recycled as well!
|I had this cute little box left over from Christmas chipboard letters. I spray painted it white, let that dry, and then spray painted it with black crackle spray paint....addicting!!!|
|I heat embossed Wendy's gorgeous background stamp onto black cardstock using Seafoam White Embossing Powder.|
|Remember my faux cracked glass technique ala Wendy, that I did on an empty plastic bottle. I saved the other half and decided to use it on this project. I wanted the bottle more white, so I applied Picket Fence Crackle Paint on it and let that dry.|
|I decided to make 3 roses using the Pinecone die. After diecutting them using Clearly For Art Whiteout, I stamped front and back with Wendy's script image using Blazing Red StazOn.|
|I did not even have to use glue. I simply hooked the little barb on the end of the die cut around the stem. I love CFA! The stiffness really makes all the difference. Aren't these gorgeous???|
|Time to assemble the flower arrangement. I tied ribbon to the tag and vase. I made curly q's in red wire and found some tiny filler flowers in my stash. I put it all together and voila!!!|
Uline: mini metal tag
From My Stash: black cardstock, tiny red flowers, ribbon, tulle, box from chipboard letters, crackle spray paint, white spray paint, white kraft wire
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
