New Challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.......
Well, it's a new challenge today over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and the new challenge is my choice this time which is from one of my favourite films - The Sound Of Music. You have the choice to follow the first verse from the theme song:-
Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Or you can just go with "my favourite things"! - perfect!
I have gone with the choice of Raindrops on Roses!
I have used my favourite rose stamp - the everyday rose by Sheena Douglass. First by stamping the rose and masking with masking fluid and then stencilling all around it with different stencils and distress ink.
I used a mixture of Spectrum Aqua markers and diluted Distress Inks to colour my rose and it's leaves.
The magic had to come when I put those raindrops on the rose! I have used Glossy Accents for most of the raindrops, there is also some glitter on some of them and I have ringed round a couple with a white pen to highlight. I also added a couple of rather large raindrops on to that background again with the Glossy Accents.
Here is a view taken from the side to see that texture that the droplets have on the petals.
Hope you can join in with this very happy and pleasant theme this month - PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE MAIN FOCAL POINT OF YOUR ARTWORK MUST BE SEEN TO BE RUBBER STAMPING.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the challenge!
