Cameo Hanger


Lin and I have been speaking about playing with the large Oval and the Cameo dies, so I decided to give it a go and this is what I came up with.

I used vanilla and Irish cream fresco paints with crackle paste. Both pieces were brushed over with renaissance treasure gold and then I topped the upper piece up with olive bronze.   This sort of gave it a shabby chic / vintage feel, so I raided through my stamps and found this B Line Designs lady.  I stamped the image in timber brown stazon directly onto the back piece which I'd previously sanded as I'd also used the crackle on it too.  The cream fringe and ribbon were added to finish.

Over at the Ali-Craft blog there is a brand new monthly challenge which has just started in June, so I'm entering my cameo hanging.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
