FSC is all about ‘Anything Goes’ this month which was picked by moi.
Combined this Christmas wall hanging with my Saturday class and my DT piece for FSC. Definitely been a bit cruel to the girls this week, made them stamp and paint onto a wooden plaque, no stamping onto tissue paper or using the Misti as a cushion … they just had to go for it!!!!
Bought a few plain wooden plaques from a little craft shop in Gorey called Different Strokes Art & Craft, Sara the owner is soooo helpful everytime I pop in.
Firstly we very lightly finger spread some gesso over the edges of the wood but left the middle clear.
Created the skyline with a mixture of paints and Marvy Le Plume brush markers. You could use any brush markers it just happens they were the first I picked up.
Because I own quite a few different makes of brush markers – Marvy Le Plume, Stampin Up, Tombo, Copics, Promarkers, Tim Holtz – to name a few – well I have been crafting a long time lol … I tend to just use whatever comes to hand first.
Very disappointed with the Tim Holtz brush markers as some have dried up plus they have very rarely been used. Definitely a waste of money in my book and to make matters worse Stampin Up had the same problem but fair play to them they apologised and took them off the market.
The Marvy Le Plume and Tombo are the oldest of my sets (probably bought these 15/16 years ago) but they have never dried out and work every time. Can highly recommend both of these makes.
Stamps are from Stampotique Originals called The Crew and Snowman.
Stampotique has to be my favourite quirky stamps of all time. How terrified do those little penguins look of that snowman???
Entering the above for The Artistic Stamper Challenge – Christmas
Because FSC is an Anything Goes challenge this month you get a bonus card showing from me. Quite a pop art looking make don’t you think?
Bought my first lot of dylusions paints whilst home, first time of using them with some Dina Wakley stamps – All The Gals and Positive Women.
Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning. Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
