Anything Goes

Hi crafters (:o)

I'm leaving to Art Specially, a dutch craft fair today

De Craftorij also has a booth and is having a challenge over the two days. We are called to create a flag A4 size to decorate the booth. I'm also going to meet the shop owner Lia again, which hosted the Andy Skinner workshop last year.

 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has an *Anything goes theme*  this week and i think my flag fits very well also if i created without any planning. This was just a go with the flow

I used two pieces of cardboard and placed dyed fabric between. One side has a mixed media theme and the back looks steampunk - ish

A lot Modeling Paste, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glaze

The pocket for the paint brushes is cut from a piece of an old jeans. Treated with Gesso, paints and some stamping. The flowers are die cut from an unknown fabric ( for me) i've got from my friend Chris Dark in the Uk. I guess you call it buckram fabric.

..and the backside looks steampunk-ish

The background started with distress inks. I've glued aluminium foil to cardboard pieces and used some different embossing folders with my cuttlebug. The embossed pieces are treated with alkohol inks and adhered to the background

I stamped on acetate ( LaBlanche and Katzelkraft ) and coloured the images with alkohol inks on the back.

This was really fun to do. The real colour is hard to catch in a picture without glare.
I hope i can show a picture of the hole bunting when i'm back.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for your very much appreciated comments

This is so beautiful! I adore the colors and the whimsicality! It's a great blend of modern and steampunk and elegance. I also loved how you said that you just "went with the flow" on this. You have such an amazing artistic eye and it's always inspiring to see what you've created. Thanks for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
