Crafty Secrets-Bouquets of Joy-CHA Sneak Peek

I am so excited to be able to share some art made with one of the NEW Crafty Secrets stamp sets that is going to be released at CHA!! The stamp set is called Bouquets of Joy and it is one of the small stamp sets. This set comes with one image of of a little girl holding a huge bouquet of flowers and three sentiments. The image of the little girl is so adorable and the flowers in the bouquet are so pretty!

Here is a tiny little wall hanging that I made using the image of the little girl from the Bouquets of Joy stamp set. Here is another close-up picture.To make the wall hanging first I started out using the Wizard and Labels One Nestibilities S4-161 die template from Spellbinders with Solar White CS and made a diecut. Then I stamped the image of the little girl from the Bouquets of Joy stamp set using Memento, Tuxedo Black ink in the center of the diecut and then I colored in the image using several Copic markers.Here's a picture of all the Copic markers I used to color in the image.After the image was colored then I put the diecut back into the Labels One S4-161 die template. I stamped the little girl image onto some typing paper and cut it out to make a mask for the image. Then I placed the mask over the colored image. Using my Copic airbrush system and sketch marker Frost Blue (B00) I airbrushed around the edges of the die template.Here is a picture after the airbrushing is done.Next I used the Wizard and the NEW Frameabilities Classic Frame S5-012 die template from Spellbinders to make the beautiful frame to go around the image. This is the same die template that was my sneak peek for the Spellbinders Pre-CHA Blog Sneak Peek. If you missed the sneak peek you can check it out by clicking HERE!

Here is a close-up of the frame with the image in place.To make the frame I used Light Terrific Teal CS from WorldWin. Once the diecut was made and embossed then I took a sponge with Tempting Turquoise in from SU and stenciled in the open areas of the Classic Frame S5-012 die template. I also made diecuts with lightweight chipboard to put behind the frame and label diecuts to make them more sturdy. I glued the two finished pieces together and then I traced around the frame with a glitter pen, added a crystal, a flower, some ribbon and a few rhinestones to finish off the wall hanging.Supplies
