Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - Paint it up



When thought of this Simon Says Stamp and Show - Paint it up challenge I only thought of the colours I might use. In the end I chose yellow, pink and orange paint and blended them altogether, and I put gesso through a stencil of flowers. I chose  Wendy Vichi stamps for the saying and the face and I coloured them in with Distress pens by painting the colours onto a craft sheet and using water on the TH brushes to colour the stamps in..


I used Distress inks, antique linen, worn lipstick and tumble glass. The photos don't show up the antique linin very well but then after all this is a craft blog and not a photographic blog!!


I was very pleased with the effect the technique produced on my  my canvas board.

  2. Hi Carol! Ever see a thumbnail of a piece and it really catches your eye? Well...your piece did that to me! I love the vibrant colors of your background. The white gesso flowers look amazing and I'm sure that the texture is really cool as well. I love that Wendy Vecchi stamp...on of my favorite Wendy stamps. That blue eye is so striking and so is the bright yellow crown! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  3. I love the vibrant colours you have used, and the white flowers applied with the gesso, but most of all I like the way the mysterious lady iseems to be looking through a window, which fits with the idea that she is shy and only flies when no-one can see. Love, Jez XXX
