We Love 2 Create – Rapunzel!

Hello! Happy Sunday everyone!

Time for a new monthly challenge at WE LOVE 2 CREATE which is always ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the awesome POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.

So as a lover of Fairytales and craft (of course) I combined the two and used a greyboard panel to create a scene from Rapunzel…you you do!!

I used the amazing new Stamp Soup set NOT SO SIMPLE to build a very tall tower. This is where our princess Rapunzel was imprisoned until one day she thought “stuff this for a lark, matey” and climbed down her own hair then cut herself free… with a rather lethal looking pair of scissors/secateurs I have to say (I used my Gel Press to get a reverse image to make the blades).  

To give our heroine a more princess-like outfit I used the roof stamp to create a tiered dress and one of the smaller stamps in this NOT SO SIMPLE set to give her a ‘cloak.’

Lots of ink blending, stencilling and stamping went into creating the background and I stamped and coloured my main images onto watercolour card so I could fussy cut and add them when everything was dry.

Strands of plaited embroidery thread became her hair (vivid imagination required) and some handwritten words were added to the sentiment to make it relevant to the theme.
