CC3 challenge 4: layering stencils and texture paste

Good morning all! How are you today? I'm recovering from a very busy day yesterday - I was rushing here and there trying to find a gypsophilia plant for my dad. I got one - but its not exactly what I wanted - still - beggars can't be choosers eh?

I also had a bit of a scare at Rainbows - we were playing hide and seek outside and thought I'd lost three of them! Its funny now because they were so good at hiding - but at the time I really was a bit worried! I guess we won't be playing hide and seek again!!

Today I've got my make for the current CC3 challenge - I'm not happy with this but time was short and it was necessary to get it made! This challenge is hosted by Linda Ledbetter - here - and Tim and Mario provide the prizes along this time with a prize from thefunkiejunkie Boutique. Here's what I made - its a small plaque only about 15cm high.


I've used the hearts layering stencil according to the method on page 49 of the compendium of curiosities 3.  I've also used a TH diecut - garden greens - a pinecone diecut faux tearose, two sets of TH stamps, distress stains, paints and inks.


On this bottom part of the plaque you can also see a little bit of the bubble stencil which I applied DI black soot through.

I would like to enter this into the CC3 challenge 4compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-4: layering stencils and texture paste.

Thanks for popping by today and thanks for your kind comments on yesterdays post - if \i haven't got around to your posts from yesterday yet I do apologise - I'm playing catch up!!

Big Hugs

Rachel xx

  1. Good morning,
    I really like your wonderful plaque, the Rose is wonderful.
    I keep saying I "must" get out of my comfort zone and try something like this.
    Oh! My! Goodness! Rachel, can just imagine how you felt when you lost the "rainbows"
    Robert did that one day he was out with us. He thought it was fun that we could not find him but I was so worried. We now only play "hide & seek" in our lane at the house or in the house.
    Have a great day
    Hugs

  7. Gorgeous plaque Rachel, I love the rose made from the pinecone die (must try it soon). Glad you found your Rainbows, I know how scary that can be. When I was a scout leader we took them to Luxenburg for summer camp. One troop got lost while out hiking, it made for a very scary couple of hours.
