Today is the day! At 9am, today Saturday 28th March, Funky Fossil Designs will be launching five brand new clear stamp sets. I have used one of the new sets, "Funky Florals" on this MDF heart.
To celebrate the release there's a 10% discount of everything in store. Use the code MARCH10 at checkout before midnight on Monday 30th March!
I started by coating a Funky Fossil Curved Hanging Heart with white Gesso on both sides of the heart. The Gesso works like a primer and helps other mediums to adhere to the MDF.
Once the Gesso was dry, I then coated one side with PaperArtsy Chalk Acrylic "Caribbean Sea" paint.
Once dry, I used white Gesso through the Funky Fossil "Petal Burst" stencil. This will be the front of the heart. I then set aside to dry.
Once dry, I started to work on the reverse side. Already white with a coating of Gesso, I used the same Funky Fossil "Petal Burst" stencil, this time using the PaperArtsy "Caribbean Sea" chalk acrylic which I'd used on the front. I set it aside to dry.
While the MDF was drying, I stamped the cluster of flowers from the new stamp set called "Funky Florals" using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink. I coloured the image using coloured pencils and a black fine tip pen and fussy cut the image.
I adhered the stamped image onto the front of the painted MDF heart. I coloured an MDF bird, part of a Funky Fossil "MDF Minis" set with a black sharpie pen and adhered onto the heart.
Finally, I adhered an MDF sentiment, part of the Funky Fossil "Positive Words" set, that I had initially coated with white Gesso and then given a coat of PaperArtsy "Snowflake" chalk acrylic paint to the heart.
