Cabinet Card For FSC

Thanks to each and everyone of you who left a lovely comment on my blog whilst I have been away.  Chasing my tail as usual but will pop over to each of your blogs to see everything I have missed over the next few days.

Fashionable Stamping Challenges want to see ‘Colour Between The Lines’ on whatever you decide to make.  Our Laura picked this fabulous theme.

Colouring in is such a stress releasing pastime which is made even more relaxing when you cut out what you have created and place onto a piece of painted grey board for all to see.

Joined together two Cabinet die pieces to make a little book with a Mini Cabinet die frame in the middle.  Ran each of the pieces through a wood grain embossing folder before layering with chalk paint and White Fire Treasure Gold gilding wax.

Cannot show the outside at the moment as my little pink camera started flashing to warn me it was about to shut down so only managed to take this pic.

Colouring in

 Stamped the bird onto acetate and coloured in with a few different Fresco Finish chalk acrylics.  Placed the acetate onto the cut out frame before glueing to the main Cabinet die.

    This looks beautiful, a super wood effect for the frame and a lovely bird image. Now I am curious as to what is on the outside.
