A Stampendous WeeScapes Blog Hop
Stampendous is wrapping up another great collaboration today with the Wee Scapes Blog Hop. Please hop along and comment for a chance to win a great prize.
So my project isn't exactly a shadowbox, maybe a diorama? I don't know. What I do know is that I had a blast creating it. It's one of those projects that just has a life of its own, it created itself. See a stamp you know you must have? Please check out my supply list at the end of this post. I'ved listed and linked them all.
I started by creating the base and frame by scoring paper, securing it with Sookwang tape and then reinforcing it with chipboard that I had stamped with gold acrylic paint and then stained with spray mist. Next, I stamped all of the Stampendous images on Copic X-press It Blending Card, colored them with my Copics and cut them out, being careful to leave a flap at the bottom of the images that I wanted to 'stand.' I sponged ink and splattered some coffee to give everything an aged feel. I added Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel to the poster and the outside of my tent. Before adhering the Wee Scapes Yellow Flower Meadow and Grass papers to my circus scene, I cut slits in the paper in which I slid the image flaps through. I used Sookwang tape again to secure the images on the underside of the grassy papers.
Wee Scapes generously gave our team all sorts of wonderful, tiny things (you can see some of my other creations using these Simi Creative goodies here). One of the things I received were two sizes of tiny people. I colored them with my black Copic marker and added them to my scene using my hot glue gun. I also added some shrubs, a tree and the flowers in my clown's hand (he must have pulled them from his sleeve). Next, I added the fence and created my 'tent' using some tulle scraps. I also made a roll of tickets by stamping the ticket image several times in a line, coloring them and then splattering them with coffee. To finish my scene I sprinkled some Stampendous Color Fragments to give the grass more texture.
I know you want to see what my teammates have created. Please give them some love when checking out their very fabulous projects.
