3 weeks since my last post and I have been so busy. We had a log burner installed in our living room so since that was done, we have had to complete redecorate it. We weren't sure what to do about the fire surround - whether just to install a mantelpiece or get a complete fire surround. So I decided to try a bit of clarty crafting and see what would happen and here is the result.
Fired up fossils
I used a match pot in black to create the outline within the main part of the wall to make a faux fireplace and used the colour I have on the other three walls for the background colour of the insert. To stamp and stencil I used adirondack Espresso stamping ink. A word of warning though - if you make a mistake it takes several coats to put right!! I hope you like the overall effect though.
PS. Arada Stoves who make the villager esprit woodburner that we had installed has also put a picture on their face book page - how exciting is that!!
Hmmm +Sheena Douglass has some amazing stamps out right now on +Create and Craft and I can really see that Koi on my bathroom walls....
