JOFY flowers

Something a little different for me today. This is a decorate chipboard panel I made for my aunt's birthday. I added a stand on the back as used it as a birthday card.
The stamps I used for this were PaperArtsy JOFY plate 12 which I bought from The Artistic Stamper. I have been wanting ('needing') these stamps for months and the time had finally come to buy them.
To make this panel I started by adding Grunge Paste to a chipboard panel through a stencil. The stencil I used were called Microbial and Cornflowers. I also added Grunge Paste straight to the chipboard and stamped a wet stamp from the JOFY set into the paste to added texture.

Once the Grunge Paste was dry I painted the panel with light cream, cream and green acrylic paints. When the paint was dry I stamped the beautiful JOFY flower stamp onto the panel with a Memento ink pad. This ink took a long time to dry so I think I should use a different ink pad in future.

I stamped the flowers again but onto smooth white card. I coloured the flower head with ProMarkers. I cut out the flowers heads and added them to the panel. Some of the heads I added two layers of card for a little extra dimension.
To finish the panel I added Stickles to the flowers and Golden Light Gilding Wax around the edges.

I was very please with the final piece and now looking forward to making some more. I am going on a JOFY workshop at The Artistic Stamper shop tomorrow so looking forward to learning new techniques.

Hi Georgina, Stunning!! I am addicted to Grunge Paste myself and I love the way you have used it. In fact I have been using it today on the 3 clocks I have been making and had wondered about stamping either with it or into it. Thanks for answering at least one way! Hugs, Carol S.xx
