My panel started as a Cheerios box, and I believe I first started working on it a long way back when The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge blog had a recycle challenge, but wasn't happy with it and set it aside. I can't remember what I built it up with, but recently I added pieces of Collage Wrap and did some stenciling with Crackle Paste and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Embossing Glaze, regular paste and Distress Rustic Wilderness crayon. I have a list of all the products I used below, more so I don't forget, but hopefully they will be helpful to you, too. In the end, I added smudges of Prima Matte Wax in white to tone it down and to cover the shine of the glazes. Tim, how about a matte embossing glaze?
I used the Lattice stamp with Picket Fence paint to resist Tumbled Glass ink on the Stitched Oval die cut. The Gate Keeper die cut is colored with inks as listed below. I colored the ladies from the newest Paper Doll release--Groups with Speckled Egg and Spun Sugar crayons and a water brush. I do love my Paper Dolls!
The flowers are die cut from water color paper using Funky Nature and Brushstroke #2 sets. I lightly shaped them with my swizzle stick. My stencil work turned out less than impressive, and these sweet little flowers and foliage help to cover it.
The quote is from the Clippings Sticker booklet, and I covered it with Embossing Dabber and a mix of Tattered Rose and Kitsch Flamingo glazes. I used what was left of my glazing powder mixture on the opposing corner. I spritzed the panel with water and sprinkled with the powder mix, tapping off excess and heating. This and the Clippings sticker were scuffed with steel wool to take back the shine. I added a little shadow under the sticker with Black Soot crayon and my water brush.
I realize there's a lot going on here, but that's exactly what you would expect in a vintage garden, wouldn't you?
That's all for now. I hope you are enjoying these beautiful spring days and finding time to do what you love! Take care, Sara Emily
