My Hero by Carol Fox


My Hero

I have an arch to share with you today. I got the Tweet Friends stamp a while ago as I really liked it, and as soon as I saw the new release stamp from Crafty Individuals of the light house I knew they would work well together.


What I did:

·       I die cut 3 arch layers from scrap chipboard, removing the centres of two of them, I layered the two outer rims and painted them with Fresco paint in Honey dew, when this was dry I used a baby wipe to apply Chocolate Pudding over the cream to just make it look a bit worn.

·       I die cut another arch from white stamping paper and stamped the light house collage onto it. I coloured this with a combination of Distress ink pads and pens.

·       I stuck this to the chipboard arch and layered the outer rims over it, I then painted the outer edges with the Fresco paint as before.

·       I stamped cut and coloured an extra wave, compass, rope and some odd birds and layered these onto the picture and rim of the arch (adding a small spinner to the compass with a brad before sticking it in place).

·       I stamped, coloured and cut out my bunting and birds, adding these to arch as shown in the main photo.

·       I now was a bit stuck for a quote and I really could not think of what to use so I rummaged around and found this on a sheet of rubber stamps and I thought it fitted in with the picture really well.
