It's fabulous Friday again, and I'd like to share a creation I've made using some of the fantastic Visible Image Stamps available.
I decided to make a sort of mixed media card, using my very favourite butterfly stamps.
The stamps I used were........
and Butterfly Sentiment.
I started off with a piece of watercolour card, and smoothed Grunge paste through a wood patterned stencil, when it as dry, I painted randomly it using Aquatints. Using the Retro Dots background and the Bronte script, and some Distress inks, I stamped randomly holding the stamp in my hand, and not on a block, then with the Treasure Gold gilding wax on my finger, I added it to the raised bits to enhance the pattern.
On a piece of black card, I stamped 5 smaller Butterflies and one large Butterfly with Versamark, and heat embossed using white powder, and fussy cut them all out, I also used the same steps for the sentiment. I used Stickles as a colouring medium on the butterflies.
