Creative Expressions Blog Hop 2nd Project :-)

Hi ya, I'm back today to show you another make I did for the Create & Craft Show and Blog Hop, you can find my post HERE for the blog hop details and where to comment for a prize :-). I also have done a little step by step of the background later on in the post :-).
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
Loves RubberStamps - Out of Season
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything Goes
That's Crafty Challenge - Stamping








Now for the step by step background :-)

I painted Eco Green Paint Zucchini onto a small canvas.

Then I added Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Medium.

When the medium was dry I added Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint - Vanilla
over it, I so love these cracks :-)

I stamped on copy paper to see where I was going to place the stamping, I then
used Tim Holtz layering stencil Hollybough with some gorgeous Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle
Texture Paste in Berry Red and Emerald.
I also edged the canvas in Emerald which gave a real holiday sparkle to the final piece.
When I did the stamping I highlighted the box and wording with Distress Markers on a clear stamping block as I like to add water and colour with a paint brush.  I also re-stamped the bauble
again 3 times and gave it a 3D effect.

Right I better be off, I shall be back tomorrow with another creation :-). Thanks for visiting.
Happy Crafting :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
