Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Release Day - Funky Florals


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.
