Sisters and Friends Wall Hanging

Hello all!  Hope your week is off to a good start.  This month, we are featuring some really fabulous rubber stamps from Rubber Stamp Depot and combining them with the awesome products from Altered Pages.

I made this cute 6"x6" wall hanging to use as a display piece or to give as a gift.  Enamorado means "In Love", and when I look at this, I see two loving friends or  sisters, reading books to each other.  Wouldn't this make a wonderful gift to a sister or girl friend.  

Cut a piece of black mat board and a piece of Olé Burrito paper to 6" x 6" square.  Distress the edges and ink them with the Leather Mix'd Media ink pad.  

Ink Sister Secrets rubber stamp with the Black Stazon Midi ink pad and stamp directly onto an ATC sized piece of Eco board.

Use peach and pink colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the girls' skin.

Use yellow and ochre colored Gelatos with a water brush to color their hair.

Use blue and pink colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the girls' dresses.

Use brown and black colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the bench, and green to color the girls' books.

Use pastel pink and pastel green colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the background.

Use black colored Gelato to edge the eco board and blend out with your finger.  

Use Ochre colored Gelato  to add a golden glow to the background to make it match the Enamored label.   

Cut a piece of the Adhesive Corrugated card stock slightly larger than the Enamorado label and edge with the Schoolhouse Red Mix'd Media ink pad.  


Adhere the label to the corrugated card and adhere the two pieces to the top of the mat board.  Leave room at the top to punch two holes and attach eyelets.  Glue the stamped eco board piece below that, as shown.

Thread a length of Sari Silk Ribbon through the holes for hanging.  

Cut a large pink flower in half and glue to either side of the eco board.  Glue a smaller blue flower in fourths and glue to the pink flower, as shown.

Glue the yellow flower on top on each side, and add a large pearl gem to each flower center.

Fussy cut two small flower bouquets, edge with a black Big Brush Pen, and adhere to the label with foam dots.

  1. How sweet is this? I love your thought process and the love this piece shares. You had me at the little girls, your colorization is wonderful. Incorporating that paper and embellishment was unexpected. Thanks for sharing your beauty!

  2. Very pretty! I like using Gelatoes for coloring.

  3. Beautiful as usual Barbara. Love all the detailed layers.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
