Do you have a journal? Apart from being great to express yourself in many ways, they're good to use up your excess of paint & ink & to experiment/ play in. Often I look back through it, finding it inspires me when I get stuck on what to create. Odd numbers are a go to, for most projects be it 3,5 ,7 or more however there's always an exception to the rule!!
You will need; Inkables, Big Ones, Egg Tim
D'Inkables, Triangle Lattice, Regular Dots & Stitches 1
Stamps: Birds & Butterflies & matching dies & Ledger
Washi Tape; Vintage Numbers
Clear Embossing Powder
I used a 14cm x 14cmpiece of card.
First ink through your Triangle Lattice & Egg Timer stencil as pic 1 & 2, this tends to work best in threes.
Add 3 strips of the Vintage Numbers Washi tape pic 3
Using the Peacock Feathers & Squeezed Lemonade, add details to background, (once paint is dry) with Stitches 1 & Regular Dots stencils. Pic 4
Next stamp the Ledger freehand, without a block giving a less rigid edge ..
Add some black paint to different areas on your page, leave to dry. Pic 4
Stamp the butterflies onto a separate piece of paper, in black & emboss with clear powder.
Squish some Peacock Feathers & Squeezed Lemonade on to a blending mat & use to colour your butterflies.. either with a brush & water or smooshing!
I found that it was still a bit heavy looking ,so I decided to add some more Regular Dots using Texture paste.
Once it was dry I added details with my Posca pens
& attached the butterflies.
Then mat & layer on to a 6 x 6 card.
Thank you for stopping by... Ann x
