Wednesday on Friday!
Try clicking on this for a much closer look; I did start working on this last Wednesday, honest! The last Wednesday Stamper challenge was to make something using the theme of "keyholes" using at least one stamp. I took a 4x6 canvas panel and painted it with gesso, and when that was dry, painted it again with acrylic paint. I then glued a piece of scrapbook paper to the panel with Crafter's Pick Decoupage Gel and a brayer. I stamped cardstock with an old keyhole stamp from Wordsworth and glued it to the background with a glue stick (and brayer--I brayer everything I glue); next, I fashioned some butterfly wings for the image of the little girls (they are from Lisa's Altered Art), and embellished those with Stickles Platinum. I attached those with glue stick, and then used the glue stick to adhere the image to the background. Next, I stamped the key (Uptown Designs)on a piece of cardstock and embossed it with silver embossing powder, using a heat gun. I cut that out, and then glued it to the background. I added a few paper flowers, some paper ribbon, and little words that I'd printed on my computer. I used some Colorbox Cat's Eye ink pads to spiff up the edges of the canvas panel. Last, I punched holes in the top of the canvas panel with my Crocodile hole puncher and added some ribbon. So, there you have it. Wednesday on Friday!
