As I looked through the Sin City Stamps shop I found the Wings Stencil (#scs114). I had to have it! A design quickly began to take shape in my head. As soon as the package arrived I began experimenting with a variety of papers and embossing powder colors until I finally hit on the combo that met my vision.
With the base for my project complete it is (of course) time to pull out the polymer clay. I have a wonderful doll mold from Penni Jo Couch's Best Flexible Molds (www.bestflexiblemolds.com) [Caboshapes II- Divas]. The large doll/Diva shape fits perfectly with the wings. I put a few slices of patterned cane together, smoothing the seams (contact me directly for more info on polymer clay canes). I then positioned the sheet of patterned clay in the mold and added additional clay to fill out the bodice and face. Once filled excess clay is removed
I pulled out the Flourish Mask (#scm112) from Sin City. Holding it in place, I held my breath as I made the 1st mark with the ink. WHEW...Exactly what I was hoping for.
This month we are working with EC Ecstasy Crafts (www.ecstasycrafts.com). I looked in my package and found gorgeous outline stickers (Starform Outline Stickers #1225). What a great touch for the edges and to highlight the center.
