No Remorse

I am off work today, hurray!! after what has been a very long week!!  I need to do loads around the house but I am not going to bother at all. I am going to spend my day losing myself in crafty blissness. But before I do that I just want to enter this piece, I recently made as a gift for a friend of mine, in a couple of Anything Goes Challenges.

It's Anything Goes month over at The Artistic Stamper and the fortnightly challenge at Anything Goes Challenge Blog

Stampotique - Twinkie

This started life as a plain white frame and a cardboard lid. I covered the lid with dictionary paper (which you cant see now, then gesso, then added a selection of acrylic paints and liquid acrylics to complete my background. Then added a selection of embellishments including a love heart which I inked to make the lettering stand out more, some washi tape. Main image is Twinkie by Stampotique. As a backing to mount my lid on I stamped all over with Bla,Bla,Bla stamp - Stampotique. I then painted the white frame in black acrylic paint and when dry sanded it back to distress. I added the Bla,Bla,Bla stamp again to the frame by stamping on tissue paper and sealing onto the frame with ranger glue and seal.

My final touch was a large bottle top, painted with black acrylic paint then excess wiped off to distress it. Stamped and heat embossed in black another Stampotique quote. then filled with glossy accents and left to set (took 2 days) before adding to my picture.

There is a story around the composition that I wont bore you with, but my friend loved it, and it now hangs proudly in her kitchen.

If you are also having a crafty day have a good one.
