Memories Documented – Cathy Cafun (Challenge inspiration)


Hi Dusty Attic Crafters,
Cathy here today to share my take on this month’s Moodboard/Sketch Challenge using some of the new Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs






The inspiration I took from the Moodboard this month was the photo of the deer and the sketch, which I turned upside down.






“Memories Documented”


When I saw the photo of the deer in this month’s Moodboard, I knew I would have to use one of the photos Luke took whilst at a Nara Deer Park in Japan.




To create my background, I stenciled first with the Crosshatch Stencil and Rose Gold Metallic Lustre, then stenciled over the top with the Leaves #3 Stencil and Mossy Ink.  To soften the ink I lightly sponged over with gesso, then stamped over the top with Kaisercraft Tiny Dot texture stamp in Rich Cocoa ink.  Lastly, I added some splatters of Lindy’s Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Mist.

I used some of the cute Deer chipboard in the layers surrounding my photo.  To alter the chipboard, I coated the deers with Metallic Lustre in Rose Gold and White Frost on the antlers. I then lightly stamped on the edge of the deer in brown ink with tiny dot texture stamp, which I softened with a light sponging of gesso.

Here is one of the new release chippies Wildflowers #7… they are so pretty and delicate!!  Again I have used Metallic Pastes to colour my chipboard… I am addicted to them, and they are so easy to apply on your chipboard pieces.  You also have the added bonus of a touch of sparkle!!

A few more of the new release chipboard packs are the Mini Tabs #5 and Mini Dots which come in Black and Raw and just perfect to incorporate into your layers.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
