Faith for AALL & Create

Hi Everyone

I here today with my 3rd, and final make for June, as part of the AALL & Create team (more to come in July).
I have been playing with one of the A4 stamps #56, this one being designed by Olga Heldwein.

I have used the stamp to make a deep wall hung piece using a That's Crafty MDF Chunkie, this one is 4.5" x 9" and I think my favourite size (but I love them all).

Here you can see each side of the piece and I love that the depth of these MDF chunkies allow you to continue your art 
around the sides, top and bottom.

I didn't work directly onto the MDF, but you could, but created my background using Paperartsy paints and a brayer, building it up until I was happy with the effect.

To ensure a good stamping surface I did lightly sand the paint so it improved the clarity of the stamped image. Now these A4 stamps are huge and I found the best way to get a good stamped image is to place the stamp on your glass mat and then ink it up with black archival, I then lay the painted card onto the inked up stamp and carefully pressed down with the palm of my hand making sure that the card didn't move and ghost the stamped image. 

I then measured up the piece of card and cut it to cover the MDF Chunkie. 
To highlight some of the area's I stamped again but this time onto a piece of tissue paper. On the reverse of the tissue paper I painted out the parts I wanted with Chalk Paperartsy Fresco paint and then cut out the parts I wanted.

I layered them over the same part of the stamped image now on my chunkie and added them using matt medium.
Once all was dry I neatened up the white edges of card using the same paints and added some flicks of paint. I had also rusted up some chicken wire which I cut to the size I needed and added to the piece wrapping it around the side onto the front held in place with some staples.

As a final step I stamped the word Faith from #23 and toned the card to match before adding it to the wire.

  1. Adore those chosen colours Amanda, that A4 is a magnificent stamp and I love the chicken wire giving it a BIG hug.
    I have to agree about that size of chunkie it's my favourite too, just turning it gives a whole new option and possibility.
