Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 16 February 2015

It is Monday and therefore time for me to show you an inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.
For this weeks' inspiration post I was given the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Moon Journey" to work with.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and then used my Graph'it blending solution and a make-up sponge and dabbed over the moon to give it a speckle effect.  I coloured areas of the image three times so that I could decoupage the image for more dimension.

 I knew I wanted to fussy cut the image - not an easy one to do - so I added some Crafter's Companion Sparkle and Shine prior to cutting to give more stability.  I have added Stickles Glitter glue to the mermaid and the moon.  I have replaced the chain in the image with real chains (I've pooped a piece of tape, which has now been removed, so that you can see it is actual chain that has been used where the image had a chain designed into it).
I painted this door hanger some while ago with a purple acrylic paint.  I added some Cosmic Shimmer crackle paint and left it to dry overnight as it didn't want to dry.  I then painted over some turquoise acrylic paint and again left overnight.  There are some crackles but not as much as I would have liked.

I have finished this mixed media hanger that will hang on my "seaside theme" craft room wall with some flowers from a wonderful crafty friend in Canada, sating ribbon, pearls, real shells, Marianne Designs die-cut oval frame, Marianne Designs die-cut shells, Marianne Designs foliage die-cut, netting, sentiment from a Debbi Moore magazine and a little bottle filled with blue and purple seed beads.

I am entering this mixed media creation into the following challenges:

Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge - Anything goes with a twist to add a bow
Di's Digi Designs - Lots of embellishments (flowers, pearls, bow, die-cuts, chain, shells, seed beads and glass bottle)
Inspiration Destination - Anything goes
Creative Inspiration - Anything goes or optional sketch (congratulations to Creative Inspirations for their 300th challenge - what an amazing achievement)
As You Like It - Favourite CAS or fussy and why (when making cards to post I am restrained as to what I make because of the cost of posting.  For cards that I make that I can hand deliver I like to go fussy and add lots of embellishments/lots of layers.  The same goes if I make any mixed media creations as I think that lots of layers/lots of embellishments can add texture and dimension)
Brown Sugar Challenge - Use a bow and a die-cut
Creative Fingers - Anything goes
Simply Create Too - Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap - Always anything goes
