This week I have created a Christmas Accordion using the fabulous Toy Emporium stamp set from Artistic Outpost.
created my accordion using the Tim Holtz Arch Frame Die; I die cut one
shape and then drew around the shape to create the accordion, cutting
from white card which I then coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink;
applying the ink to a non-stick craft sheet and then spritzing with
water to add bleached out areas in the background.
love browns with a touch of red and I love how the Vintage Photo
Distress Ink adds a real vintage feel to the imagery. With my first
panel I stamped the sweet girl with Black Archival Ink, created a mask,
placed the mask onto the girl and then stamped the Santa imagery behind.
Delicate splatters of Fired Brick Distress Paint have been added to the
background along with scratchy painted lines. I also added further
shading to the edges with more blended Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
used a star template to add stars to the central panel, which I painted
with Titanium White DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic, dried with a heat tool
and then coloured with Gelatos to add shading. Christmas Joy was
stamped into the centre of each star using Black Archival Ink and once
again I repeated those red splatters and scratchy paint lines.
third panel I added random background stamping using the text stamp
from the Toy Emporium set stamping with Ground Espresso Distress Ink and
drying with a heat tool.
also added stamping to the reverse of the panel, again repeating the
splatters and scratchy paint lines and those stars, to echo the details
on the front of the accordion.
