This week saw the debut of Lisa Horton, owner of That Craft Place, on Hochanda. She absolutely knocked it out of the park! I saw many comments over Facebook about how she inspired people to get grungy. I was no exception and here’s what I created!
On this Creative Expressions MDF tag, I used Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer paints in Green Lime, Peacock, and Violet. I started with a coat of each paint (starting with Green Lime) and then sanding back to reveal the layers (an awesome technique that I learned in a Mark Gould workshop). I then used one of the Wendy Vecchi stamps from the show in black archival ink. I painted paper with the the violet and peacock paints (where they overlapped they mixed to a pretty blue) and then used a script stamp to give the flowers a bit of texture. The flowers are from another Wendy Vecchi stamps (again from the show). The green twigs are from a Sue Wilson die and paper painted with peacock. The hideous flower centres are Cosmic Shimmer pva pearls that I completely fubared…not the fault of the glue! lol I also attempted to channel my inner Lisa and did some swirls with the pva pearls. Some cheesecloth and black ribbon finished it off.
