Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 24 November 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "CHRISTMAS".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "anything goes".

Here is my inspiration post with this image.
  My project this week is a mixed media project.  I decided to decorate an old coffee tin.  I used some white gesso as a base coat and then I used my Imagination Crafts Starlight Metallic Blue Paint to paint a couple of coats onto the tin.

I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Autumn Sea" (this comes in a set along with the images Intense red, Jewellery Keeper, Flowing Crimson and Sunset Jasmine) and I have coloured her in with my Promarkers and used my Pan Pastels (blue and yellow), Pan Pastel blender and Pan Pastel Coarse Medium for the background for some sparkle and shine.
I have finished the decorated tin off with some washi tape at the top and bottom, twine and shells.

As you can see from this second photo this decorated pot lives on my craft desk and has my started pots of glue standing in it with the tops downwards to avoid the post of glue drying out.

Promarkers used:

Face/arms/body - Saffron, Oatmeal, Spice and Turquoise
Hair - Khaki, Sandstone and Satin
Top - Marine, Turquoise and Duck Egg
Mermaid tail - Marine, Turquoise, Duck Egg, Fuchsia Pink and Pink Carnation
Moon - Vanilla and Ivory
Greenery - Bright Green
Shells/sand - Sandstone, Tan, Khaki, Mustard, Sunflower and Tulip Yellow.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:
