Live in the Moment

Hallo alle miteinander.
Heute möchte ich Euch ein bisschen was zum Wand dekorieren zeigen. Verwendet habe ich das neue Stempelset von Visible Image Stamps "Live in the Moment". Auf dieses Projekt bin ich besonder stolz, da es im neuesten Craft Stamper Magazin (03/16) veröffentlicht ist. 
Hi everyone.
Today I'd like to share a mixed media wall hanger with the awesome dragonfly stamp from Visible Image Stamps. I am very proud of it because it is published in the latest Craft Stamper Magazine (03/16). 

Als Basis hab ich ein Stück Karton verwendet und diesen mit Gesso ein bisschen shabby chic aussehen lassen. Mein Hintergrund ist Designpapier mit Schrift, welches ich ebenfalls mit Gesso grundiert habe. Strukturpaste und Distressglitter sowie einige Farbspritzer geben dem Hintergrund einige Details, ebenso die Micro Beads von Prima in dem Farbton "Splash". Die Flügel der Libelle sind leicht mit Distress Inks koloriert und mit Gloss Gel überzogen. Die Stanzteile wurden mit Schablonen von Die-Namites und CAS-ual Fridays geschnitten. Der Text ist mit schwarzem Embossingpulver geprägt und mit Distress Ink "Peacock Feathers" koloriert.
I love to recycle old things in my work and give them a new lease of life. Here I used some old cardboard as my base. I added a shabby look by painting it lightly with gesso. I used some script design paper, which is also painted with gesso as my first layer. I used texture paste and Distress Glitter  in the back as well as some colour splatters. I added Prima Micro Beads "Splash" for more interest. The wings of the dragonfly are softly colored with Distress Inks and covered with some Gloss Gel. I used dies from Die-Namites and CAS-ual Fridays.
The sentiment of the "Live in the Moment" stamp set is embossed with black powder. I colored the background with Distress Ink "Peacock Feathers".

Schön, dass Ihr vorbei geschaut habt.
Thanks for stopping by, Susanne.

  1. congrats for your publication, love your wall hanger

  2. This is very, VERY pretty! You did a great job of combining a variety of textures and elements here. I especially love the fuzzy handle and how you included so many rustic, earthy details. It looks amazing and I'm not surprised it's being published! You did a wonderful job and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  3. Gorgeous tag! Love the dragonfly image hovering over the bursts of bright spring green. The blue and green combo is lovely, and I especially like how you made your tag out of cardboard! So glad you joined us to recycle/upcycle this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
