The Craft's Meow

We're adding six new stamp sets to the TCM family this month.
You've got the ultimate chance to grab ALL SIX of them, simply by visiting and commenting on each stop in the hop!
The deadline to comment is 9:00pm PDT, Sunday, September 23rd.

I've been showing you cards all week, but this time I felt extra creative, and this post is all about mixed-media...
Let me show you first, a small altered canvas, with my beautiful daughter in a lead role. She's turning *3* on Monday, my sweet little rascal :)


 It's a thick canvas, 15 x 15 cm (5.9 in sq.). Decorated with plenty of scraps (mainly Teresa Collins), Glitz Design die cuts/stickers/Glitzers, various flowers from Prima & Maya Road and a chipboard bird (custom inked).
I used the stamps from Good Times here, in a couple of ways. One is a sentiment label, that I decorated with white pen. The other is the little flags, that I converted the banner into.


 The die cut is Chloe Stem from Memory Box.

 

I also altered a shadow box frame, using the beautiful leaves from Fall Blessings and the passage / lace border from Vintage Clocks.


The frame was raw wood so I antiqued it by painting it white, and then sponging grey and moss inks. I stamped the border with Provincial Gray Fresh Ink. The leaves were stamped with Memento inks (Rhubarb Stalk, Morocco, Peanut Brittle), and cut out. I arranged them together with two blooms (made with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and Core'dinations Glitter Silk cardstock) and some fern laser dies.


The inset is stamped in Provincial Gray, and mounted on foam tape over a piece of neutral MME paper..


I hope you enjoyed today's post!
From here, jump over to Jean's blog! Thank you for visiting, have fun hopping along with us :)
Don't forget that Golden Days is your September Gift w/ $50 purchase in the TCM Store!!
