Sam has chosen this weeks theme of hanging decorations over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog. I picked up this wooden sign from PaperArtsy when in Doncaster, obviously it was just plain wood. Using the fresco paints, I gave it a couple of coats of snowflake, then a thin coat of satin glaze, I mixed a lot of white with south pacific as I wanted a very light blue for the top coat. Now imagine my surprise when I sat there for ages waiting for it to crackle and nothing happened. I couldn't understand it, it has always worked perfectly and then duh!!!! The penny dropped, I'd used satin glaze and not crackle glaze so it wasn't going to crack was it!!!
So, moving on, all stamps used are Stampotique. The letters are the alphabitties. I stamped the word in versa mark ink and added white embossing powder. I stamped the Daniel's hearts and hanging hearts in versamagic cloud white ink. I then coloured some of the hearts with the south pacific fresco paint, hi-lighted parts of the letters and edged the sign with the white ink.
