We have the final instalment
of our New Home celebrations
today. All these lovely projects
this week have brought on
the wanderlust ......... only
just curbed by the very thought
of packing up my craft room......
Here is Jane Castle to take
my mind off it .........
"Hi everyone, today I'd like to share
with you my project using
the fab stamps by Riley and Company
called Mushroom Lane.
They each have an amazing amount
of detail and stamp beautifully crisp
and clear..... what more could we ask for!
To begin with I started with a 15cm x 15cm
Kraft card as my base and cut a piece of
mixed media card 14cm x 14cm.
For the tag I used the largest of the dies from a set
from my stash and cut a matching tag
from some kraft card and then
cut the mixed media card a little smaller.
The card was coloured using a brayer
and various Fresco paints.
Then using some Distress Ink, a sponge and
stencil added some fern leaves to the centre
part of the card to frame my main image.
These leaves were then brushed with mica
powder adding a slight sheen and extra interest.
I then stamped my main image several times
using Distress Oxide Ink onto some spare
cream coloured card ready to cut out various layers.
These were coloured with Distress Markers
and the white stones around the door and
the picket fence were coloured using a fine white
Welcome' was die cut using some scrap card.
The main image was stamped onto my
background card and the aerial was
heat embossed with clear EP.
The card was then assembled using Pinflair glue
and to finish Enamel Accents were added
to the corners.
I think you can just see in the photo
how the light on the mica powder changes
the colour of the fern leaves around
the mushroom house and shed.
Now to finish the tag -----
I stamped the main image onto the largest tag
and heat embossed with clear EP.
Next I stamped the 'Home is Where the Heart is'
onto the smaller tag that had been coloured
I was not completely happy with the sizing
so decided to cut the painted tag again
one size smaller which I felt worked
so much better.
The smaller tag was attched with foam pads
and a hole punched in the top for some ribbon.
I think these stamps make a great addition
to any crafters tool box and I will
be purchasing more in the future."
