It's time for a new challenge over at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!! This month our challenge is to use stamps in your mixed media project. Our sponsor is Unity Stamp Company and they are generously offering a $50 gift certificate to our lucky random winner!! All our designers used fabulous Unity stamps in their designs. Be sure to click over and see all the amazing creations our designers made for this months challenge.
I made a little wall hanging for my project. I started with a piece of fiberboard that I think I ordered from Scarlet Lime. I really like how one side of it is textured like burlap. I made that side the front. Then I added a corrugated cardboard panel and I inked the panel and edges with the Sepia Ink. I put an orange Tim Holtz trim around the cardboard panel. Finally, I added a Tim Holtz Holiday Thanksgiving trim for the hanger and attached it with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
To make the turkey, I used an awesome set from Unity called Build-A-Turkey. I stamped all the feathers on different "fall" colored cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Stampin' Up using Ranger Sepia Archival Ink and cut them out. I adhered the wings and the turkey to the panel and added Espresso sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to each of the feathers. Then I added Fired Brick Distress Stickles to the turkey for a little accent. The sentiment banner is a die from Papertrey Ink and I added two orange sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. It was super fun to make and I really like how it turned out.
I hope you will play along with our stamps challenge this month. I can't wait to see what you create!!
