Something a bit new to me! - Stamptactular Challenge Number 3

Over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog- the challenge was Black and White + ONE other colour! SOoooooo I chose Yellow. I had a canvas lying around (I think its 20x8 inches). I got my trusty old Acrylic paints out, splashed a blob of black on a plate and covered the lot. Not the plate that is, the canvas I covered hehe...I printed off some photos of my baby girl Poppy who will be 8months at the end of the month, and layered her onto black glitter card and plain white card both from my stash...

I then set about stamping out these cute little fellas - Elvin, Egbert and Trump. These cute chaps can be found at Bearly Mine Designs Shop - But you have to be quick. Donna put a post on there and she only as 10 sets left. When they're gone, they're gone!

So I inked up the Elves from Lumas Thorn (there is a really good story unravelling over at the Lumas Thorn Blog too if you're interested!) using my Memento Black Tuxedo Ink.




Coloured them using my copics.

I got out my bead kit and used some silver wire and twisted it around a pen and then attatched this silver star charm I bought on e-bay

I coloured my Papermania white flowers Black and Yellow and using Brads from my stash secured them on to the canvas.

The gem hanging from this flower was also from E-bay, the chain was an old fashion necklace I had lying around.
The smaller flowers are from my punches, half pearls from stash

In all this project took me about 3 hours to do and most of that was drying time of paint and glue.

Y Thank you for popping by Y

Donna said...

OMG Kimmi, how gorgeous is this! And what a brilliant idea too, never would have thought of it myself. Definitely something for you to hang on the wall and keep for Pops as she grows up. I love the added touch of each elf with each photo, and your flowers are gorgeous too and the chain and wire. It's really a work of art and I can see why it would take so long. I absolutely love it and you should be very proud of what you've created.
Thanks for joining us this week.
