Mr & Mrs by Bev Hilton


Hello everyone. A little fun project for this week's crafty inspiration. Bentley gets married. I do love Bentley and he's always dreaming of happy times. His dreams have finally come together in the shape of Mrs Right. I have to say that this piece did come about after a certain stamp designer made a comment about how everybody colour's him ginger ;-) I did see this as a little challenge so this one's just for you.

Here's what I used...

That's Crafty! Surfaces MDF Upright - Torn Note Page
That's Crafty! Gesso - White
That's Crafty Stamp Set - Serenity Collection - Bentley
Darkroom Door Eclectic Stamp - Camera (any other would be fine)
Leonie Pujol Stamp Set - Feathery Flourish
Tim Holtz Stamps Set - Crazy Things
Sizzix Framelits Die Set - Crazy Things
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Star Shower and Hearts
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Paints - Lake Wanaka, Sage, Cherry Blossom, Snowflake and Cherry Red
Versafine Ink Pad - Onyx Black
Stazon Ink Pad - Jet Black
Distress Ink Pad - Black Soot
Clarity Stamp Super Smooth White Card 250gsm
Polychromo Pencils
Gems and lace from stash

Here's what I did...

I began by sponging over the entire upright and base with gesso. Brayer over layers of Lake Wanaka and Sage, using the Snowflake every so soften. Take the Cherry Blossom and brayer over softly until happy. Take the Dinky Heart stencil and pounce through with the Cherry Red randomly. Take the stars stencil and pounce through with the metallics paint randomly. I wanted a little more interest on the background so I took the small hearts element from the Leonie stamp set and stamped it randomly using the Hydrangea ink. My upright is now ready for Mr & Mrs Bentley.

Stamp Bentley twice onto smooth white card and colour with pencils. You could use any colouring medium you like for this. Stamp the camera onto the same card and heat emboss to add texture. Cut out the pieces. Take the Crazy Things elements from the stamp set and stamp onto smooth white card and colour. I used the matching die set to cut out the elements but if you don't have them it's no problem as they are very easy to cut out. Now glue all the elements onto the upright. Take the gems and glue onto Mrs Bentleys collar. I chose shades of amethyst to match her colouring and the background.

Take the letters and stamp Mr & Mrs using Stazon ink. I used a Stamping Platform for this as I do with all my stamping to ensure I got the letters in the right place. Take the Black Soot Distress ink and blend lightly around the edges and do the same on the base.

Take the piece of lace and glue to the bottom of the upright low enough to allow the lace to frill out on the base once mounted, as you can see in the above picture. Mount the upright onto the base. One happy Mr & Mrs Bentley dreaming of a happy future.

All for now. Enjoy the rest of your week and hope the see you all again next week.

Much love,
