A Small Winter Hanging
The Cheerful Stamp Pad. For the next two weeks the challenge weeks the challenge ( #78) will be "A snowy day". Well now that fits for most of our friends in the northern and eastern part of the US, but here in SOCAL we are experiencing draught conditions. The last rain we had was in November and there is NO snow in the mountains, and today was a balmy 74" F. But I digress......
For challenge #78- a snowy day I decided to do a small hanging using a Victorian image From Vintage Image Crafts. I used a piece of chip board and ran modeling past through a stencil. Next was a good coat of Gesso. I used my Gelatos for the coloring of the background, spritzing with water to get it down in the stencil grooves. Once that was dry I sanded the high spots with a large, fine fingernail file, then dry brushed the edges with Gesso. The image was attached with brads at the corners. Along the edges (see the shiny parts) is Sugar Dust, which is what I also coated the snowflakes with.
There are two weeks to join challenge #78- a snowy day. I hope you will join in the fun.
