in the deep blue waters of the ocean..for dragons dream DT
well it is going to be a two post day today as my Dt commitments have now clashed so this will be one of two posts.......this is my post for dragons dream DT and will be back later with my post for frilly and Funkie DT. So the dragon has been dreaming again and the lovely Sue has dreamed up our recipe this week..so remember you have to create a tag and use at least on real stamp. So the recipe is blue, sea an stencils.... so here is mine:
The thing I love about these recipes is they challenge me to do things I would never dream of doing and I find I usually surprise myself with the end results! So blue well I love that, sea...umm more tricky and stencils well that was fine too..now to combine all three. I started by creating some texture using studio 490 embossing paste in white through a fab craters workshop stencil..mini confetti. When dry I also applied some rock candy through the same stencil...an idea from the brilliant Hels .When this was dry I painted some distress satin in broken china through the crackles.
I then used stains smooshed into my craft sheet and dragged tag through this spritzed stains, drying and the reapplying until I was happy with the colour and splotchy texture created. I then scared myself and inked up my new Lynne Perrella Stamp from a win over at Paperartsy..and stamped onto tissue ( never done this properly before.) I added colour using stains on reverse so as not to loose detail. Then glued to tag using multi matte medium and also applied a layer over the top.
Finally the sea, created by stapling some dyed seam binding..
a bit different for me.. so make you you pop across and maybe even dream with the dragon..
