Hi Folks, it's been a while since I last posted anything on my blog, I have been crafting a little but just not had an opportunity to share any projects with you.
So, today I thought it was about time to post up something new. Today's project was inspired by this month's Lavinia Stamps Challenge, which has the theme 'Spring Colours with the stipulation that only Lavinia stamps be used.
When I think of Spring colours I imagine yellows and greens, with just a hint of pinks and mauves as various wildflowers begin to bloom, so I have used these colours on my entry for this month' challenge.
I created the background using Distress Inks and overstamped various Lavinia images using black Archival ink. I used a water brush to lift out a little of the colour in front of the Fairy Houses, among the trees and on parts of the stone path to create the impression of light and contours. I also used the same water brush technique to create a horizon.
As a finishing touch I scattered Shabby White Frantage Emboss Enamel over the image and heated from underneath to melt it.
I'm enjoying playing with Distress Inks at the moment and having great fun !
Thanks so much for dropping by to check out today's project, hope you enjoyed your visit.
