Hiya! Happy Friday!
The new Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs challenge is to
use this color palette:So I gathered up my Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints (**love**) and got to work on a 10"x8" canvas.
The base is "vintage findings" paper by Making Memories and vintage book paper (buy yours here!)
After masking the area for the heart, the background was done by spreading the teal, blue, and yellow paints on a craft mat, patting a piece of bubble wrap in the paints and dabbing them on to the canvas. The heart is done by dabbing red paint through a stencil by Plaid (which I scored on clearance for 99 cents - woot!) with my fingers, and stamping with a Pink By Design stamp and Cherry Red Staz-On ink. The whole thing was too bright for my liking so I added a piece of tissue paper by Hallmark which has a very light yellow pattern on it over the whole canvas. Layers of stamping with black Staz-On ink and white gesso, rub-ons by Kaiser and Basic Grey, and Mod Podge were placed on top of the tissue paper.
The gorgeous metal filigree used as a nest is from The Funkie Junkie's Boutique. It came in an antiqued bronze finish but easily took the black Copic ink I applied to it. Linda, the shop owner, runs a Sunday Share on her Frilly and Funkie blog where you can share any project you've made using product from her boutique so I am going to share this canvas there too!
