As promised yesterday here is the collage panel I created in the workshop on Monday evening. I picked out colours I don’t usually go for – yellow and pink tones. I worked with the Distress Paints in Crushed Olive, Picked Raspberry and a bit of Peacock Feathers. (more…)
Today’s project is again using linen cardstock. I sprayed the background when cleaning out my misters from last week’s projects – spraying what was left in the spray to clean out my rich gold, aqua lagoon and golden mint and when they mix together you get this lovely green shade.
While still damp, I applied the Love Post Mask and Dreamweaver white embossing paste.. By applying it when damp, some of the colour seeps into the paste to soften the white starkness against the green
Once dry, I added a fineliner border and stamped a few circles on the Background from the IndigoBlu Boadicea set – and the wording comes from that set too.
The dies were cut from a jade piece of card using Crafty Individuals Gilded Cage and Sweet Flying Bird dies. I then tinted them with Distress Ink Walnut Stain and sprayed with water to intensify the colour. They were still a little pale, so I dabbed them with archival black and the end result was quite an interesting patina style finish!
Lots of colour today. I started with a linen finish piece of white cardstock and then applied ink from my Kaleidacolour Bouquet inkpad using a Brayer. (more…)
