Creative Artiste January Challenge DT Post

Happy new year folks! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa filled your stockings with lots of crafty  goodies. If he didn't though, never fear as we have a new challenge over at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog with a fabulous prize of a 30% discount on offer from the brilliant Tando Creative ( discount applies only to TANDO products) .



Tando do so many amazing things  for mixed media fans to enjoy. I recently had a little splurge myself and was so excited to get playing to create my DT piece of a small wall plaque for this months challenge. I hope you like it. I adore the little whimsical houses and they are such good value too . 



To create my plaque I used a greyboard base from Tando, which I gesso'd over and then sponge painted with Americana acrylic paints. I lightly stamped some script text in versafine ink to add more interest. The papers used on the house are by Lost and Found, and I distressed the edges and doodled around. I stamped some foliage using my Indigo Blu Laurel Leaves stamps, and hand drew some heart flowers amongst them which I then painted with Dylusions paints. The sentiment is from Lavinia Stamps, and the main heart stamp was from a set that came free in a magazine ages ago and I coloured it with twinkling H20 paints. 

Challenges I am entering:




Thank you for popping by to take a look. I hope to see your entries in our challenge.
