The Craft Stamper "Take It, Make It Challenge"

Just a quick reminder that you still have time to enter a piece of your art over at the Craft Stamper "Take It, Make It Challenge"!  The theme for this challenge is mono printing using an acrylic block.  Personally I can't stop making sheets of art using this technique, then I cut them up and use the sheets for projects, cards, etc.  Here is a small wall hanging I made today using one of my mono printed sheets.

 

I used the mono printed paper as the background.  I cut a piece that measures 6" by 6" and used that as a background for the stenciled houses.  The house stencil is from artistcellar.com and is called "Whimsy Town".  I stenciled it on the paper using a black micron pen.  Then I added a little bit of Scattered Straw Distress Stickles in the windows to mimic light. The dauber top on Ranger's Distress Paint made perfect Wild Honey colored circles.  The stamping is done with StazOn Jet Black ink using a Dyan Reaveley circle text stamp.  A touch of shiny red paint on the doors and hearts is the only thing needed to complete the scene.  I had some black canvases in my stash measuring 6" by 6" so I glued the paper onto that and put an antique crystal knob on the top with ribbons to finish it off.  This could hang on the wall or sit on a stack of books.  It makes a cute house warming gift!

So please take advantage of the time left to participate in the challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, leave a comment if you have time, you know I love to hear from you.  Take care ~ Renee

  5. I love "city scape" stencils, Renee, but this one is new to me. Just might have to investigate this one a bit further. Your mono print background is super with the colors you used, and the black buildings just pop against it. Love how you used Dyan Reaveley's text circles here!
