Hanging on

This is a project I made for Craft Stamper Magazine, it's in the March issue (available in February 2017)



Stamps I used... “Hanging On” digital stamp by Rick St.dennis  free download at Craft Stamper Magazine (march 2017 issue)
Clearstamp “Rocks” Kaisercraft


Other materials..
Deco Art Products:
Deco Art Texture Stucco, Deco Art Media Fluid acrylic paint in ; Pyrole Red, Quinacridone Magenta, Primary Yellow, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue Hue, Dioxazine Purple, Carbon Black. Deco Art Americana Acrylic paint in; Grey Sky, Neutral Grey, Navy Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Lamp Black, Snow White. Deco Art Traditions acrylic paint in Red Violet. Deco Art Media Ultra Matte Varnish.
3D canvas 30 x 30 cm. Watercolor paper 300 g. Noch Deco Moss Autumn Mix. Chipboard 30x 30, Battery operated candle, 3D foam, Scissors, Craft knife, Tacky Glue, paint brushes, old tooth brush and coloured pencils (I used Prismacolour)

I started making the background on watercolor paper using the Deco Art Media fluid Acrylics thinned with water to get a watercolor effect

The Background was bigger than the frame but that's ok, you can cut it to size

When the sky was ready painted the mountains and used a tooth brush to splatter with white paint to create the stars

The castle was colored and cut out, it's in many layers to create a 3 d effect

I cut the background to fit the frame

 the frame was covered with tecture stucco on the bottom part, when dry the tecture stucco was painted black
the upper part of the frame was painted to look the same as the sky

the background was glued to the frame and the castle was added inside the frame

 there is a litle light in the turret, it shows better in the video above
I dry brushed the stucco texture with greys to make it look like stone, and added some moss
 here some pics with the light
 and a better look at all layers

 a detail of the fame

and a bit sky
