Back to Black

Well its finally like summer here in the South Coast of England. We are expecting 30 degrees this weekend!!.

I took my artwork outside to photo and am a bit disappointed with the picture. In real life I'm pleased how it turned out. I made it specifically for the That's Crafty Challenge which this week is Back to Black.


I first painted the canvas with black gesso and then added die cut corners from black card before coating again with gesso. I used a stencil from a recent edition of Cards and Papercraft, with Pebeo Dyna Paints. The butterfly stamp was from the same set which I stamped and embossed with WOW! Embossing Powder Metallic Gold Sparkle.

I just wish you could see it in real life to see the shimmering effect!

Other challenges I am entering

Down on The Farm

I have finally managed to get round to using this brilliant set of stamps from HobbyArt.






I created the background using watercolour paints on watercolour card. The animals were stamped on to watercolour card with archival ink before painting and cutting out. I added the flowers and the bee and used simple brush strokes to add the greenery.

I love them!! and I hope you do too.
