Peachy Keen Challenge 41 :: 3-D :: Wall Art

  So I decided to experiment with stamping on a crackled wood plaque for a challenge. I really thought this little bumpkin girl would be super cute so I went for it. I painted, crackled and then painted again my little wood plaque. I then stamped the little bumpkin girl Madisyn and colored her in with my copics. Sometimes things look better in your mind.
So...mistake number one - Should have stamped her using Stazon and not Memento. The Tuxedo Black ink came out kind of a grey color on the paint and smeared when I used Mod Podge to seal everything.
Mistake number two - Should have just used acrylic paint to color her in. You can forget any kind of blending on painted wood :(
All in all Madisyn herself is a cutie so I'm going to enter her into the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge anyway.
Here she is!

  1. hmmmmm....I never would have guessed you made any mistakes, she's super duper cute and looks great all crackled ;) gl with the challenge

  2. Well, I think she turned out pretty cute, Jen! I like the muted colors, as it adds to the vintage look of the crackled piece. Thanks so much for playing along with us at PKS this week!

  3. Don't be so critical! I think the girl looks good! The things you think look bad, I think go with that weathered/crackled look! I agree (even before reading the above comment that it makes it look vintage!

  4. She looks so cute and vintage! Thanks for posting at Peachy Keen's Challenge this week.

  5. Oh my, what a sweet, vintage plaque!! I love the adorable girl image you used.. Thanks for joining us at Peachy Keen Stamps..
