I'm pretty pumped to still be hanging in there! :) Today I have for you a third ingredient to add to my ... hmmm ... shall we say Apothecary Cabinet? I have ideas forming in my head of how I'd like to display them all together... can you think of anything? At first I thought a book... but I want them all to be seen, so I've been scouring for a big vintagey frame to display them in.. :D Anyways.. Today I bring you... COBWEBS:
Isn't it just DELIGHTFUL? I'm so drawn in by the gorgeous green! EEK. It's like POISON IN MY VEINS. The base is Canson Watercolor paper covered in Liquitex Basics paint... I applied it nice and thick with a credit card so that it could then be heated with a heat gun to get the texture. (If you're trying this technique and it's not working... you need more paint!) Then some glazing with Liquitex glazing medium and Golden Fluid Acrylic in Carbon Black. Last but not least for the background is a very thin scraping of Blick Gesso accentuate the texture.
I adhered a Spooky Branch chipboard piece from UmWowStudio as the base of the embellishing for my card. Just a little bit of wet glue and a few minutes will keep it in place. You may have noticed by now... I adore fibers and textures in my projects (and depth!) so I ripped up a bit of cheesecloth to represent a spiderweb and glued it down. The Cobwebs stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps! really ties the corner off (and my ingredient card of course!) well.
I even stamped a heroically creepy spider in the background... the Spider on Web Line is from Viva Las VegaStamps!. All stamps are in Archival Ink by Ranger. I couldn't forget to put a little hanger on this card, so I got out some silk May Arts Ribbons in gorgeous gray and gave the card a double hanger.
I finished the whole thing off with that same vintage book text that I included in my previous two ingredients. BOOM! Can't wait to have the whole set done. It's going to be a great little piece of home decor!
AAAAAAAAAAAND >> Check out how cool they're looking all together:
