I hope you won't mind that I have used the same stamp as yesterday, as it is a new one and is really inspiring me to experiment. For the first one, I have stamped the shrine onto polymer clay, and dusted with Artistic Stamper mica powders, which are great and are much cheaper than a lot of the alternatives. I then cut out the shrine part. I also stamped one of the Crafty Individuals Clocks, using gold mica powder. I popped the veiled girl part of the image into a small matchbox, behind the shrine frame, to provide depth.
For the second one, I painted the wooden container in the same way as yesterday's upload, and stamped just the roof of the shrine in polymer clay, and then added some Crafty Individuals butterflies, made in the same way (and another clock, as I decided I liked that bit).
I have made these for a very dear friend's 'special' birthday next weekend, but I can't decide which I prefer, so please can you help me, via your comments? As it is a birthday gift, I would like to enter it for this week's Sunday Stampers, as the theme is Birthdays and Something Stamped!
It is beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Both are great but for me it has to be the top one

These are marvy, don't listen to Hel's send them to me! My B'day is before hers! I love them both, but my fav is the top one. Welcome to Gingersnappers....that's where I came from to visit. Love your work.ReplyDelete
Both are lovely Lucy but I think the top one has the edge. xxx Hazel.ReplyDelete
They are both beautiful Lucy, and if this is for a mutual friend of ours and you've not quite made a decision as to which one to give, my vote would be for the second one as I know she has a thing about butterflies! Hope I haven't put a spanner in the works!! Hope to see you for some crafting soon.ReplyDelete
