MIX118 Fabulous You
Friday, May 1, 2015
Playing along with the mixed media challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today. MariLynn has a smash technique to share there.
I placed three shades of distress inks on a folded piece of acetate and misted it with Perfect Pearls to create my "smash" background. Once that was dry, I inked through as stencil with the same distress inks, and then moved it and inked through it again with archival ink. Then I spritzed it with water and let some of the inks run again.
Next, I inked up the little tag with distress inks and stamped the sentiment. It's been adhered to the card with two strips of washi tape and a brad.
There is a soft shimmer from the Perfect Pearls that didn't pick up on the camera. Please use your imagination :)
Here's what I used:
Paper: Strathmore 140# watercolor paper and SU!
Ink: Scattered Straw, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage, and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks; MFT black hybrid ink; and Tree Branch Archival Ink
Stamps: STAMPlorations The Bee's Knees City Girl
All the other stuff: tag, bad, washi, TCW stencil, sponges, water mister, acetate, Perfect Pearls
