I hope you enjoy our fun hop!
For my piece I cut a niche in an old book before gluing the pages together (you can glue them all in one go by applying a generous coat of gel medium to the edges and clamping them together). The book has a wash of cream paint to knock back the text and some green stencilled detail.
I used the laser cut substrates to make my little critters - I loved using these and the end result is fab, with so much more dimension than cut out stamped images. I undercoated them with chalk paint and used a variety of Archival inkpads to build up the stamping. I added details with coloured pencil, a white gel pen and a black fineline pen.
My tree die cut is sprayed with Distress Spray Stains and has little leaves and flowers added. I stamped the quote and freehand cut it into a speech bubble to add to the whimsical effect.
Finally I added some detail to the facing page with stamped fox and painted MDF word, also from Paperbabe.
LOVE these new products and I hope you do too. Good luck in the giveaway and enjoy the rest of today's hop.
