It's time for the next challenge at Emerald Creek Dares - and this one features the wonderful charms from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. Kim has a fantastic selection of charms available at her online store.
This will be my final Design Team post for Emerald Creek ~ I have enjoyed working with Kim & her amazing line of embossing powders, charms & stamps over the last 8 months. Check out the Design Team Call on the Emerald Creek Dares blog if you would like to join this fabulous Canadian design team!
Now on to my project - I created a vintage look canvas.
I started with a flat 8x10 canvas and using matte medium glued down scraps of patterned paper from the Emporium Of Curosities Mixed Media Paper Pack from IndigoBlu.
Next I applied molding paste through the Flourish & Harlequin Layering stencils form Tim Holtz/Sizzix. I also applied DecoArt Crackle Paste with a palette knife.
After my canvas was completely dry I sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Sprays - Ground Coffee & Postbox Red.
Still using the Emporium Of Curiosities Paper Pack from IndigoBlu, I placed paper pieces that I inked and distressed. This was going to begin forming my centre focal point.
The flowers were made using paper from the same paper pack and the Jumbo Tattered Foral die from Sizzix. Each flower is made of 6 layers of paper that I sprayed with water and scrunched up before fixing together with a brad.
The greenery is chipboard cut from the Garden Greens Die from Sizzix. I painted it with Peeled Paint Distress Paint. I then randomly stamped a script stamp over the painted chipboard before covering the pieces with the new Crazing Collage Medium from Ranger. I absolutely love the crackle finish the crazing medium leaves when it dries.
To add a bit more grunge I added some Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder by first 'painting' on some matte medium over the edges of my canvas then sprinkling on the embossing powder. I let the this dry before heat embossing the powder.
A couple of Copper Filligree Leaf Charms from Emerald Creek perfectly finished off my floral focal point. A couple of vintage photos added to my canvas and I was done!
