Good morning, Saturday has arrived once more so it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. This week we would like to see anything but a birthday card....so loads of scope for you to choose from.... as long as there is some stamping involved we'd love to see it!
I made these door hangers for my two oldest granddaughters, I bought the (cheap!) wooden blanks some time ago and finally got around to decorating them. I sanded the edges and painted the blanks with gesso as the surface was quite rough and obviously porous, with hindsight I wish I'd added a couple more coats!. I then coloured them with distress inks, adding a bit of stencilling for background interest. The stamps I used are all Lavinia, stamped with black distress ink (would have used Stayzon but my pad has dried up!), there's a touch of clear Wink of Stella on the fairies' wings. I painted the wooden letters and the outside edges of the hangers with black acrylic paint. To finish I added some ribbons and a tiny gems around the 'holes'.
So pleased you popped in to visit today, hope you'll find the time to join us at Sweet Stampin' this week, just click here to check out the fabulous creations that my lovely teamies have made to inspire you!
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
