It is Quirky Crafts Challenge time!
We are sponsored by Crackerbox Palace for this challenge and they provided the team with some lovely stamps to show off.
Crackerbox Palace ship their unique stamps Worldwide, wood mounted, foam mounted or unmounted, and they are very nice people to deal with too! There are three vouchers to win so you could own some of these lovely stamps if you enter and win.
The theme set by Daire is Myth, Magic and Paint. So I got out my new Fresco paints (I only have 4 colours so far) and got really messy and went to bed last night with multi-coloured hands and my fleece is well and truely ruined now! That paint didn't come off until I had a shower, and I washed my hands numerous times and scrubbed them too).
I used the sleeping dragon, Rena's Unicorn and the sentiment "If you can't stand the heat, don't tickle the dragon!!!". My dragon is sleeping on a pile of "rocks" which are really gel medium with glass balls - an impulse buy in the art and craft shop yesterday! I don't know if it should dry clear, some of it did, some is still opaque, but you can add colour to it before use or after it is dry. I inked it with distress ink when it was dry. I coloured my images with Promarkers, stamped the unicorn onto the door hanger then cut one out without the curly bits to stick on. I used sparkly Mod Podge to adhere the images and seal them, I love that stuff!
It is supposed to look like the dragon is sleeping in his cave on a pile of crystal rocks and the unicorn is standing on top of the rocks saying don't tickle the dragon!
I took this photo in the mini studio but I think the one on the door is better and looks more true to the actual colours, this image shows up the dragon better, see his teddy bear?
