Hi everyone I'm back again with another Hiding In My Craft Room challenge. This week the challenge is to create a masculine project. A lot of times I struggle doing masculine but I think I succeeded this time.
The sponsor this week is MHK designs.
The winner will get their choice of three products. MHK graciously provided me with a choice of stamp sets. I loved the sentiments and the image with the sled friends set. The image reminds me of all the fun times I went sledding with nephews and later on with my son.
I printed the image out on matte photo paper using my laser printer. As I wasn't sure whether I was going to color with water colors or what I was going to do. Then I used my blending tool with Distress Vintage Photo ink. I decided to try to get the look of the old fashion tintypes. I cut my piece out by hand so my piece ended up being a little wonky. I really need to find my drawing compass. I'm sure it is with the other stuff the borrowers have borrowed.
I inserted the sentiment and the snowflakes which come in the set into Word so I could create the custom sentiment. Then printed it on Kraft card. I tried to foil but the snowflakes were too light of a color for the transfer foil to adhere. Also for some reason the foil only wanted to adhere in certain places of the sentiment. Second time I printed it out on my inkjet printer.
I printed the image out again with my laser printer to see how it would work as a gesso transfer. I used another sentiment from the stamp set. Details will be on my blog Tuesday.
As I write this a cold snap has appeared overnight. With the wind blowing it is even colder. Winter has finally appeared.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
