Forest Mushrooms A Diptych by Lynne Moncrieff



Playing around with That's Crafty! MDF Tags to make a diptych featuring one of the Katzelkraft mushroom stamps brought together with quite a few That's Crafty! products in this project along with some scrappy paper pieces to try to evoke that sense of walking through the forest.



The first step for this project was the same as I recently shared where I placed two of the MDF tags side by side and attached them with tape to form a hinge, I used zinc oxide tape.

I dipped into my box of prepared cardstock but if preparing from scratch it is easy to achieve this effect by spraying firstly with walnut ink. If you do not want to dissolve walnut ink crystals/powder then there is of course the option of That's Crafty Flat Matte Spray Walnut. To this, adding small amounts of the Pearl Inks and quickly misting with water. Prepare a second sheet of cardstock this time only with Walnut Ink, again misting with water.  Allow both to air dry.

Once dry, use the MDF tags as template to cut out two tag shapes from the cardstock adhering with the That's Crafty! Multi-Purpose Craft Adhesive.  

With Distress Ink, repeatedly stamping one of the leaves from the Mushroom stamp set and a texture stamp from Textures Collection onto the tags. A few scraps of eco dyed papers were adhered before repeatedly stamping text stamp from The Language of Trees
Onto the walnut ink sheet of cardstock, stamping the mushrooms and fussy cutting before adhering to tags, creating scribbly outline and layering with scrap of eco dyed paper.

On the facing tag, a circle was cut using the That's Crafty! A4 Circles Stencil, it was just a piece of scrap painted cardstock I used.  Layering to the circle stamped words and a piece of mica tile along with a few more scrappy paper pieces. 

Hints of Interference Gold paint.
