Earlier than normal I am sharing my Craft Barn dictionary entry with you for this fortnight. The letter is W and there are no twists. There were loads of words that appealed to me but having just been given this Joanna Sheen wisteria die by my lovely Mum, it had to be that (well, it would be rude not to, right?!)
So this week, W is for... Wisteria
I wanted to create a scene for it to frame as that seems to be what wisteria does best, so I used the hobby art Tuscany stamp set (also a gift from my lovely Mum) to make this little scene. Since 'create a scene' is the title of Little Claire's challenge this month, I'd like to enter in there too.
I'm posting earlier than normal as I wanted to be in time for a second entry in to Simon Says Stamps Tic Tac Toe challenge. I picked the diagonal line 'stamp, stencil, spray.'
I started by stencilling an imagination crafts leaf stencil around to top and edges of the page to give a background to the the wisteria.
I inked with a variety of distress inks and stamped over the top, masking the sunflowers in the corner.
Once I had cut the wisteria, I spritzed it with smooch spritz in green to give more variety to the leaves.
You can see this a little clearer here.
As well as the previously mentioned challenges, I would like to enter this in to SSS Wednesday - Anything goes, craft stamper- anything goes and Penny Black at allsorts anything with stamping challenges.
