Lynne Perrella board

I found some time to have a play over the last few days and make something that was just for me. This doesn't often happen but however it happened I seemed to be on top of things (which is very rare!). I've been wanting to have a play with my Lynne Perrella stamps so that's what I reached for.

I've used a piece of chipboard for this project, I've painted it with Snowflake Fresco Finish dried it off and then stuck torn pieces from an old book to it.

I gave the board a coat of Glue 'n' Seal as this stops the paper disintegrating when you apply more Fresco Finish paint. I've used Blood Orange, Vanilla and a little Pumpkin Soup and applied it with baby wipes.

I used The Crafters Workshop Diamonds stencil with Snowflake Fresco Finish, dried it off and then applied some more Blood Orange over the top. Then I've used some Grunge Paste and dragged my spatula across it to create extra texture.

I've used a mixture of Chocolate Pudding and French Roast around the edge of the board and then used the PaperArtsy Mini 44 stamp with black Archival ink.

I've then used the Artistic Stamper Punk Plaid background stamp without an acrylic block and randomly stamped over the board.

The main image is from the Lynne Perrella 010 set and I've stamped it onto a piece of book page that I've painted with Snowflake and then used a baby wipe with Beach Hut, Limelight and Blood Orange. The frame is one that's been kicking around my craft table for ages. It's cut from Grunge Paper and I've painted it with a mixture of Brown Shed and Pumpkin Soup. I've dabbed some Gunge Paste onto it, painted it and then brushed some Florentine Treasure Gold over the top.

I brushed more Treasure Gold over the board, around the edges and over the raised areas of the Grunge Paste. The small flower on the main image is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower strip die. I painted some Crunchy paper with Blood Orange, dried it and then brushed some Perfect Pearls over the top. If you heat it the wax from the paper melts and the Perfect Pearls sinks into it.

I used a border punch and punched two pieces from white card, stuck them together and then painted it with Blood Orange. I've then glued some May Arts crocheted lace over the top.

The text is from the Darkroom Door Discover set. It's been stamped onto some more book paper that's been painted with Snowflake and then  Blood Orange, and Beach Hut. I've mounted the clock face onto one of the gorgeous Filigree metal embellishments that The Funkie Junkie Boutique sells the buttons are also from here.

I thoroughly enjoyed my self on this project, I hope you like it too !
