The Power of Four!

The further adventures of Lady Ophelia Pendleton (Darcy's postcard Challenge) will continue on Sunday 30th September

Today I wanted to share a little wall hanger I made for The Game Challenge#10 Four Squares, that represents the four seasons :D
I started by cutting a 4"x4" piece of grey board, and putting it through my Cuttlebug to add texture.
Then I selected 4 images from my Dezinaworld Mono Ladies, Faux stamps sheet 1, and cut them out with a 1" square die.
Next, added the colours of the seasons...
blended with a little iridescent paint, and cut out some plain frames, which I painted with metallic acrylics.

Decided on a Diamond alignment, and glued images + frames in place.

I have some tiny alphabet beads, and thought they would make a more unusual caption. I threaded them onto a piece of wire...

and then made holes with a pokey tool to thread the wire through to the back.

Was looking a bit ...not quite...so I added Inca Gold to the edges(see 1st photo). It doesn't show in the pics, but the surface is all shimmery.
why not pop over to The Game blog and join in...they have prizes :D
Enjoy XXX

  1. Great hanger Gina, love the colour and the gold edge brings it all together. Didn't know you could emboss grey board with an embossing folder. Will have to try it. Have a great weekend. :-) xx
