Recently, I was given a lot of trims, by an interior designer friend of mine. They are opulent and exciting....they reminded me of the style of the fabulous Lynne Perrella stamps by Paperartsy.
I began by grungepasting through a stencil onto the borders and sides of my canvas. Next, I painted with French Roast Fresco paint and finished with rubbing in some Treasure Gold.
Next, I got a piece of red felt and added some lace and ribbons to it with my felting machine, creating luscious layers and textures.
I stamped a Lynne Perrella lady using black archival and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then coloured in my image and mounted onto some embossed gold card.
I played for ages arranging the trims and metal embellishments and added TH metal corners.
My dining room is red and this will go nicely in there....being a bit of a curiosity.
Here is some of the detailed texture.
I am entering this into the CVC challenge.
