My papercraft and card making projects

edited version with added sentiment
 and butterfly and wishes tag
had a little play with some art parts today

i found these plain wooden wall sconces in a charity shop.
covered in black gesso and some metallic goldfinger paste on the edges.
i covered it in some of tim's stash with multi medium
i found a great way to trim it off ;---- when it was completely dry i used a sanding grip on the edges of the card and sanded right through it against the edge of the wood ... it gave a nice edge with a distress to it.  i smooshed some white gesso through a dot mask as part of the background.
i coloured the art parts with stains and stamped in coffee archival various patterns on each shape, then cut a grungepaper flower using the shape of the art parts and added a button to the centre
the front edge has a piece of 'dots' grungeboard cut with the edge scallop die

i think it needs a sentiment or something .... it doesnt feel finished yet

thanks for looking xx


  1. I Love art parts and I think you've done Wendy proud here! I see what you mean about a sentiment - but she's done so many I'm not sure which one to suggest! Looks like you've had a very enjoyable Sunday!

  2. Wonderful Tag Tony. Love the grungy colours. Envious of the art parts. I saw them at the show and rubbed my hands with glee. Can't wait for the new stuff to hit the shops. Loving what your're making post NEC. it's obviously been an inspiration & stirred your mojo. Px

  3. Gorgeous.... loving blokey stylee you have put with the Art Parts... lush :O))
