Messy Fun

Well today i have been playing about and getting messy with my Crafting!!

I bought a pack of 5"x7" Canvas Boards sometime ago with a thought of doing something with them but wasn't sure what!! lol

So i got out the Paints, Pastes, Inks, Stamps, Stencils etc and had a play!!

I was happy with how it turned out as all this getting Messy with crafting is still very new to me but i am loving it and i want to do more!! lol

I coloured my Image Muscovado Sugar a few weeks ago but wasn't sure what to do with her until today!!

Here she is, details how i made it are below.

1 - Paint Canvas with Lime Green Acrylic Paint (yummy my favourite colour lol)
2 - Using Modelling Paste i applied through the Dutch Doobadoo Cobweb Stencil then left it to dry.
3 - Once dry i dry brushed the cobweb with Tim Holtz Black Soot Ink.
4 - Then i drybrushed very lightly over the black with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserve
5 - Next i applied with my finger Inka Gold in Magenta, GreenYellow & Turquoise in random places. I also did this to the Graveyard cut out what was cut on my Cameo.

Here's a couple of close up photo's of the texture.

I also used Stampendous Frantage in Aged Scarlet
& Cosmic Shimmer in Tarnished Silver

Spooky Sentiment also from That Craft Place Etsy Shop

All items used available from That Craft Place Ltd
