For my second project I challenged myself to use scraps and left overs. Here is my creation....
The background was created by using Distress Oxides. I love these inks and cannot believe how they have become my 'go-to' pads!
I then stamped the Tim Holtz Vines and Roses stamp set using water - this is a great technique - after colouring the background with ink I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped as normal. After a few minutes it had lifted the colour and created a 'bleached' effect - which I love.
This close up shows the bleaching a bit better....
Next I added scraps of Tim Holtz tissue paper.
The oval was a spare that I had in my stash.
The art doll with wings is a very old stamp which I adore (and isn't made anymore). This was stamped and coloured using alcohol markers, then fussy cut out (yes...really!). This was added to the oval using foam pads.
To finish I added a few butterflies and a simple greeting.
I really had fun making this and hope you like it.
There is still time to join in the challenge for this month... don't forget that there is a voucher up for grabs!
