hi guys I'm here with my Wednesday
and this week i was set a challenge by my teamie Pauline :)
the challenge was 3 colours of my choice,
so i chose, turquoise, yellow and purple. i stamped coloured and cut Tala, then i stamped the dragonfly 6 times, and coloured, then covered the wings in deco art triple thick gloss glaze, and sprinkled with glitter.
this was where i got a little stuck! what was i going to do for a background! i looked through all my papers and nothing jumped out at me, then i remembered i had bought my hubby the Encoustic art iron and waxes a good while back, about 2 years or more !! so i thought id have a play and see what i came up with, its a little tricky to get the hang of at first but so much fun . Anyway after some trial and error i finally got a background i liked, now i needed to get the tree in.. humm apparently you cannot stamp on wax even with stazon LOL, OK so that one went in the bin, next i stamped first then waxed...humm not bad but the white wax on the sky showed over the tree making it almost foggy...( now there is an idea for another make ;) ) OK so onto the next try, (I'm getting a bit more confident with the wax by now) so , stamp then wax but using clear wax with a little turquoise and purple wax for the sky, yay! it worked, so now i had my tree, i stamped the word believe and fussy cut then stuck on the card, next the arrows where stamped and cut and stuck , this was all mounted onto a deep turquoise card base, then Talia was added , and the dragonfly's cut and layered with the top set of wings gently shaped, I'm quite pleased with it though the dragonfly's are a little darker than i wanted but even so they are sparkly and pretty lol.
on the insert i used the dream catcher and the follow your dreams,
hope you like it :)
