AALL & Create - Tracy Evans Stamps

Following my announcement post on Sunday HERE to tell you all that I was honoured to be asked to be a guest designer, for a couple of months, for AALL & Create this is now my official first post as part of that team.
For my first post I have been playing with stamps designed by the talented Tracy Evans. For this post I have teamed up one of her latest sets launched this April along side one of her older sets.

I have created a 3D piece using one of That's Crafty MDF uprights. 
I created my background onto a couple of pieces of thick white card rather than directly onto the MDF as I wanted to add some machine stitching. Onto a white piece of card I brayered up white and black acrylic paints. I then sprayed and dripped a selection of colours of That's Crafty matt sprays. I addded my stitching and then covered the MDF trimming it to fit with a sharp knife as I went.
Using some of the left over card I stamped the flowers, coloured them with the matt sprays and a touch of coloured pencils and white gel pen. They were then cut out and added to acetate to allow them to stand up as I left a little acetate tab on them to glue to the base. 

The dragonflies, from Tracy's older set, were stamped and cut out again being coloured with the sprays and added to the top.

I edged everything with black and white striped washi tape to finish it off.

Here you can see the dimension of the piece.

I used the following of Tracy's Stamps #70 & #45

  3. Fabulous blended colours - love the matte look of the sprays, and the white pen detailing really brings Tracy's wonderful flowers and butterflies zinging to life. Love that funky washi tape edging too. A brilliant first official creation for the team.
