Simon Says Stamp & Show... A Childhood Memory...

So, this week's theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show is....


A Childhood Memory...

One of many childhood memories was my sister and myself baking cupcakes with our mum and I always remember my sister calling them fairy cakes(even to this day) LOL!...


 I have used Wendy's magnificent art parts as the base, with yummy graphic 45 steampunk papers...


Well... I have been eager to try some beeswax collage using my wonderful melting pot. It's not very clear in the pictures. I've used the adorable girl from Crafty secrets sweet stuff stamped onto tissue paper and layered within the beeswax. You will also spot quite a few of Wendy's Studio 490 stamps too.


The rose was created from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, is coloured with Pine needles distress inks and a little mini mister spray of gold perfect pearls.


the cup cake is in Rusty Hinge and I've added stickles, then covered with glossy accents. The old text print papers I have die cut for fairy wings and coated in wax. I had to include a little bottle of fairy dust sparkle... very tricky to photograph.


Most of the edges are highlighted with gold paint dabber and an ideo-ology D-ring for hanging.

Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see one of their childhood memories!!!

You are definitely the Technique Queen, Kim! The beeswax collage is fabulous and I love the childhood memories behind it. Your embellishments are over-the-top amazing too!
