You Are Loved That Is All

Monday, April 4, 2016

While I'm waiting for one of my projects to dry, thought I'd play along in a couple of challenges. There's a lot of shimmer on this that my camera does not show in the larger here's a close up:

This is a stencil monoprint made with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.  I wanted an aged copper feel, so that's how I chose the colors to work with.  Easy-peasy, quick as a wink card.  Added a bit of Copper Inka Gold around the edges and a few drips of Copper Perfect Pearls Mist.  And, of course, my usual smattering of sequins.

Not familiar with the stencil monoprint technique?  Here's a video tutorial that I did last year.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  watercolor and Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Distress and Versafine
Stamps:  WPlus9 That Is All
All the other stuff:  TCW 630S Mini Chickadee Post stencil, MFT Wonky Rectangles die, Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls Mist, Copper Inka Gold, misc. sequins
