Hello and welcome back. Here is a fabric project I have done using the stamps from Leonie Pujol and the new collection that was launched on Hochanda on Wednesday 18th May. I hope you like it and enjoy my step by step today.
I started of by cutting a square of cream Calico approximately A4 in size, pressed it and stamped the head and shoulders stamp.
Very lightly in pencil, I sketched a rough outline of a gown, I filled this with the group of flowers stamp from the same set. This is a wonderful stamp and has a light feathery effect within the flowers, I deal for pattern building. I thought it would be great for the dress as it gives a floaty effect.
I was a bit adventurous with the hair and wanted her to look different so I decided to cover the hair with French knots. Taking 2 strands of black and one strand of burgundy embroidery thread I randomly added them all over. Then in between I used just 2 strands of black thread until it was completely covered.
For the flowers on the dress I used Spectrum Aqua Markers from Crafters Companion, the colours I used were Teal,Wildflower and Red Violet. I used flicking strokes using the small nib end, from the centre outwards, but didn't colour right up to the tips as I wanted these to remain cream.
I used the same flicking motion and small nib to colour the wings with Teal and I concentrated the colour nearest the body. When this was dry, I stretched the calico over a piece of 8 x 8 board.
On a separate piece of calico I stamped my sentiment and stretched this over a piece of greyboard.
Taking the misty flower stamp that I used for the dress along with the single flower, I created a frame/border around the card. I positioned the sentiment where i wanted it to sit so I could stamp the edge to match the Background.
I then randomly coloured some of the blooms in the border, Using just a couple of the Spectrum Aqua Markers. Finally I stuck down the sentiment, raising it with 3D glue gel.
It was fun creating this project and I hope you have enjoyed seeing and reading about it today. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and I hope that you will continue to follow my blog. Take care xx
