Morning everyone……..”Ding” ……the ding is for Marie!! lol!
This week has flown by. I still haven’t taken the Christmas tree down yet! It ooks so pretty. It looks bare when it has gone. My project this year is to redecorate the house so hopefull I can fill the gaps…..”if there is a space then I will fill it” lol!
Here is my little inspiration piece. I was stumped at first so I thought of everything I could think of that is black and white….music, piano keys, clocks, black script, motor racing flags. That is about as far as I got until I thought of Harlequin Diamonds and Pierrot, so I went with that.
I stamped my little “Pierrot character and background building” image onto white card stock, masked it and then stamped over it with the harlequin diamonds. I removed the mask, trimmed it and then added some DIs around the edge. I then attached this to a piece of black card which is just slightly larger in size. I placed this image square onto another piece of white card, drew around it in pencil, removed the image and then stamped the “masquerade masks” using the pencil lines as a guide. I then rubbed out the pencil marks.
I stamped just the pierrot three times onto white card, cut it out in layers and then decoupaged him up. For the last layer, just his head, I added some diamond glaze around his cap.
I stamped “dream” onto a piece of white card, smudged it all lol!, so then stamped the dots all over it. I then went around the edges with some DIs and layered it onto a piece of black card.
Stamps used: Harlequin Diamonds – Crafty Individuals. Pierrot character, Dream and Mask are from Chocolate Baroque. Saying that, I think the CB stamps have now been retired. Not sure.
Happy Crafting and take care.
