A lovely day

Happy Weekend! Today, I have a card for a Stamptobefest challenge on the Stamping Board at Two Peas, called Embossed Art (to stamp and emboss on top of a mixed media background). It is also for a SOF11 challenge to use Distress products.

Gesso was brushed on a piece of watercolour paper and then Distress Stains were used to colour it (Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet). Peeled Paint reinker, Perfect Pearls and water was misted over a brick stencil. I felt that the background needed some more opaque parts, so I used a paint dabber to make dots and painted a heart. I used an old plastic card to make a border with the pink paint. When dry, the dots and heart were outlined with a white gel pen. Two strips of paper from an old dictionary were added to the background. The bird, branches and text were white embossed. Finally, I added a few pieces of mica and three rhinestones.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Supplies: Crafty Individuals branches and bird stamps; Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous bird stamp; Artistic Outpost sentiment stamp; Adirondack paint dabbers: Salmon, Mountain Rose; Crafter’s Workshop stencil; Distress Stains: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet; Peeled Paint Distress Ink reinker; mica flakes; old dictionary page; white gel pens.
