I have two wall hangings to share with you today. Both are framed in 8x8 shadow boxes.
For my first project, I used the Fine Feather set.
The feathers, in the Waltzingmouse Fine Feather set, are exquisitely detailed. And now she has dies that coordinate with them.
This project was super simple, and only a bit time consuming. I stamped three of the feathers, 8 times each, onto Vellum with Versamark. I then heat embossed them with white embossing powder and die cut them with the new Fine Feather dies. After that, I snipped each feather in various places to give them a softer feel, and mounted them to a textured piece of Core Impressions Modern Prints Collection by Pink Paislee. I love flowers and birds, so I thought this was a fun combination.
Here's a closer look at the feather detail.
For my next project, I used the new Alpine Christmas stamp set to make a wall hanging.
Above is my project framed. Sorry for the glare on the top. No matter where I took the picture, I couldn't get rid of some of it. You can see the background pretty well though, and I'm really happy with it. I just took Kraft cardstock, scored it every 1/4 inch, turned it over and scored it between each previously scored lines. I then added a hint of Vintage Photo Distress Ink over it.
Here it is unframed. For the main panel, I diecut a snowflake from the center, and while the die was still in the paper, I stamped the snowflakes, from the Alpine Christmas set, with Versamark, onto Vintage Cream Cardstock, and embossed them with White embossing powder. I then ink distressed, from the outside in, with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain.
See the little scene on the inside? Claire has designed the sweetest little snow village with buildings and trees that fit together. However, you can create your own little village like I did. I wanted the church by the "w", and the little trio of buildings tucked up right under the word "snow". I then took my white Sharpie pen and colored the roofs and splattered some "snow" with it over the background.
Here's a close up, so you can see the sweet little buildings, and the depth of the diecut. I popped it up with dimensional tape. The back panel is ink distressed with Pumice Stone Ranger Distress Ink.
