|Ok this was my second attempt, I'm showing them backwards, because this is my fave. I followed the same methods and them stamped the birdsnest and sentiment from WPlus9. Je t'aime the birdsnest!!!|
|This was my first attempt. I masked the edges and the torn panel with low tack tape and then using the the distress paints I stencilled the polka dots and other pattern. When dry, I sponged distress ink over the entire panel and then stamped some background images. The bird is alsdo a stencilled image - although I'm not sure it really suits - I might have to add a crown to make it look less scary! The sentiment and feathers are from WPlus9. and the background stamps are from Prima.|
I really loved this technique and enjoyed using the paints as an alternative to inks. I am obsessed with collecting blue & white vintage and new home-wares for our beach house and decided to stick with blues in my cards.
I'm entering these cards in the Simon Monday (Stencil it) Challenge, A Blog Named Hero (One Layer) Challenge and Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge (Stencil)
Also, another reminder about about the Mixed Media Card Challenge - the theme is 'BEGINNINGS' - I thought my birdsnest suits the theme perfectly.
