Design Team Project #2 featuring Darkroom Door London 2 stamp set (by Lesley)

Hello again All,

I said I'd be back later in the week with another project and I am ........... by the skin of my teeth, lol!  I'm afraid it's been one of those weeks but never mind, make it I did and this time I've made a little triple hanging frame (Snazzys have loads of fabulous alterables).

I started by separating the three little frames and then covered them with black Gesso. I followed this with adding some texture paste which I stamped into with one of the little stamps from the Darkroom Door London 2 set (spritz stamp with water first and clean immediately after stamping).  It doesn't really matter which one as it was only for the texure.  I left this to dry before repainting the whole lot with Black acrylic paint and leaving to dry once more.  I then dusted the textured areas with Perfect Pearls.

I stamped the largest stamp from the London 2 set using Onyx Black Versafine ink onto cream card twice and then selected three areas from the image to cut out and place into the frames. 

Again using the Versafine ink I stamped the little street sign and a bird from the 7 Gypsies Lille set onto cream card and embossed with clear embossing powder, cut them out and adhered to the frames.  Finally I painted some cream acrylic paint across an Ideology Wordband, wiping it off whilst still wet so that it just went into the characters but it shows up much better irl.  I then attached it to the frame with some of the clear Stix 2 dimensional strip.

Well, that's it from me for this month folks but we still have plenty of lovely projects and inspiration to come from Nicky, Astrid and Hels so do pop back regularly to see their fabulous work.

I'd like to add that it's great to see so many lovely folk leaving a message on Gillian's first post this month!  If you haven't done so already, pop back HERE and leave a little comment to be added to the random draw to win a set of lovely Darkroom Door stamps and a Versafine ink cube..

See you all again soon and thanks for visiting.
