Once Upon A Time

Greetings! It is hard to believe another fortnight has passed and already it is time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge!  This time, the theme is to create a project with either a Mask or Stencil.  I hope you pop over to FSC to see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you to create one of your own.  For my own project, I decided to work on a canvas rather than a card, which is where my comfort zone truly resides.  I recently purchased Gelatos and have been wanting to work more with them. I found a video online that shows laying Gelatos onto a Gessoed Canvas and then brushing Gesso over top of the bright colors to provide a creamy background. Next I used several Tim Holtz Stencils and Distress Inks to layer onto the canvas.  The rays at the top needed something so I cut out a yellow sun from fabric and adhered it to the corner and added some faux stitching.  The fun houses are by Francoise Papillon for Stampotique.  After stamping the first one, using a mask, I stamped another next to it.  The houses were water colored with Distress Markers.  The Mushrooms and Grasses at the bottom of the canvas are by Dylusions.  The children and kite are stencils by Andy Skinner.  The kite was embossed with Black Embossing Paste by Wendy Vecchi.  Buttons, twine, and chip board complete my card.  As always, FlonzCraft is our generous sponsor and one lucky winner will receive a gift voucher for $20. I hope you will join in! Best wishes, Yvonne
