A birthday hanging for our friends' daughter who will be seven next week.
A little wall hanging/card made from balsa wood, so it's nice an light plus you can write on the back easily and use it as a card and that is what I have done I have chosen to use this stamp again as a) I really like it and b) it does resemble Connie a little. I have bought her a lovely little knitted dress, crocheted her a scarf with bright flowers on, which I have forgotten to photograph and wrapped it up - will have to take a photo of her modelling it and will find a CD for her as she is getting a new stereo for her bedroom. I was still getting dollies bought me at that age, lol....how fast they grow up these days.
I inked up the stamp (free with Craft Stamper) with coffee Ranger ink pad and stamped into the white clay and left to air dry. The gold is gilt cream applied with my finger and I added a little glossy accents to the circles. The balsa wood I painted with emulsion, firstly with orange and then a cream colour over the top and then sanded to smooth the balsa wood and to show some of the orange underneath. The wood was stamped and a touch of gold gilt cream added to the edges.
I added three different ribbons/fibres to hang it with.
