I haven't done a 2 in 1 just posting 2 together. Firstly Hels' Sunday Stampers challenge. The theme this week is Pearls. I've used the canvas that I won in the SS challenge some weeks ago. I painted the background with white paint, coloured with a liitle Stream Adirondak colour wash - not painted all over, just patchy. I used Dyan's Lime colour wash with 2 stencils in the corners and colouredsome Golden gel medium which I've used again with stencils in the opposite corners, (in some places it's not so thick so the colour underneath shows through) The image is called FaeAway but I can't remember where it's from. I've used some hessian and threaded it through a 'thing' cut on the Robo, which has been triple embossed with Key Lime Pie and a bit of Ebony (from Once Upon A Stamp); I've threaded a painted cocktail stick through. I've stamped with some of Tim's stamps - butterly and floral in pink on left side - not showing up too well; and a flourish stamp in green. I've stitched some pearl beads onto the canvas and finally edged it with gold leaf pen.
I've used an image of my grandson on the Christmas card, and though it's not exactly 'arctic'; which is the theme for dcdchristmasclub this week, the conditions are arctic to me hehe. The 'snow' and greeting are computer generated.
