Hey, there! It’s Day Four of MFT’s August Teasers and I’m so excited about today’s project! Today we’re previewing You're Invited, MPD Collage Backgrounds, and Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Chevrons. Be sure to check out what other design team members have for you today, along with details about all of these products at the MFT Blog. Release is on Tuesday, August 6th at 10pm.
I recently gave my stamp room a serious clean out so I now have a little space on which to display some projects, and this one was done with my room in mind. I started with a 8 x 8 stretched canvas and went from there. Using tissue paper and MPD Collage Backgrounds, I stamped the text with black waterproof ink then went over and stamped the gears from the set with sepia waterproof ink. Then I crumbled it up and tore it into strips before adhering it to my canvas randomly with Mod Podge, After that dried (your heat tool is your friend) I swiped some gesso on to lighten it up a bit. Next, I added molding paste using the MPD Petal Pattern stencil and allowed that to dry.
In the meantime, I assembled my clock, using MPD Timeless stamp set and Die-namics MPD Time Pieces and made my Die-namics Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose, and die cut my Die-namics Decorative Doily and Die-namics Large Leaf-Filled Flourish. To give the rose the look it has, I swiped it first with copper craft paint and then gesso. The flourish started out as Kraft and I dabbed green paint on it to give it a dappled look. I stamped the sentiment on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag with waterproof ink and swiped it with gesso. The gears were cut from chipboard coasters and painted with metallic paint.
After the molding paste was dry, I used a paint dabber and colored it the nice salmon color, then swiped the edges all around with Distress Ink. Then it was just a matter of arranging the elements and adhering them. I love how this turned out :)
And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope my project inspires you to “mix” it up!
