Make A Wish by Lynne Moncrieff


Hello, this week I am sharing a project which was a sample made for That’s Crafty’s recent HOCHANDA appearance. This was my first time playing with Rubber Dance stamps, the Textured Flowers.


That’s Crafty! Metallic Paints: Antique Gold, Pearl
Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics: Blush, Blue Oyster, Antarctic
Old Credit Card
Extras: Collage Image (Redlead Paperworks), Teabag, Black Sewing Thread


I like to paint the white side of the white/greyboard panels with Gesso but that is just me with my funny quirks!  The ATC size panel and greyboard butterfly were also painted with Gesso.

All three Frescos were applied to the above, working quickly to create texture. Onto the panels, the pretty Pearl metallic paint was applied in the same manner as the Frescos followed by dipping paintbrush into Antique Gold metallic, creating clusters of small dots.

A Texture Flower was stamped onto both panels. Knowing I would be adding a child, I decided to elongate the flowers. To do this, I simply extended the stems with a Sharpie fineliner pen, adding stamped leaves. Near the bottom of the panel, small flower head was stamped with stems and leaves doodled. Stars were also stamped.

The ATC panel was adhered to main panel. White paint pen dots were added to all flowers. For the butterfly, Frescos were applied before stamping doodled circles at an angle, again adding white dots. Charcoal was applied to edge of butterfly and smudged.  An Affirmation was stamped onto a piece of tea bag paper. This was attached to threads which were wrapped around centre of butterfly. Gel Medium adheres the threads to back of butterfly, before adhering to panel. Affirmation and threads flow freely.

Fussy cut collage image, before adhering to bottom edge of panel. Edge image with charcoal, smudging to create shadow.

Until next time,
