Just for fun challenge "New Techniques "

Girls, girls, girls,…………..Now this is what I call a challenge !

My first big challenge was getting out of bed today ( I’m a little under the weather ) but I couldn’t wait to see what the girls over atjffchallenge.blogspot.com had in store this week. As soon as I saw it I got straight back into bed !Everything is a new technique to me even simple stamping so I was a bit more flummoxed than usual. Had a nap and found that my flummoxing was on the wane and so had a go.

Now these techniques to you lot of experienced,talented,beautiful,artists (can you tell I’m going for the sympathy and crawling vote )  may not be new but they are to me so here goes !

I cut two tags one with acetate and one with card and printed onto the acetate this beautiful Japanese flower design (is printing on to acetate a technique ? ) cut out a butterfly from the same acetate and layered it with a pink card butterfly. I then stamped and embossed with one of my In the garden stamps from SU onto a feather ( tricky little devils ) and there you have it.

Please bear in mind that no birds where harmed in the making of this tag .


P.s you might need to enlarge the image to see the detail on the feather

  5. What a gorgeous creation and yes acetate stamping is a technique and can be a tricky one that people tend to avoid. Too easy to get a blurred image. Have heard of stamping on a feather but never ever tried it and that sounds like really advanced techniquing to me.Your work is always stunning and it is a pelasure to visit your blog. Hope you soon feel better. Thanks for joining us at JFF
