Here is my make for this week, a hanging piece that could easily be adapted for a card front. So here is my make this week using the garden twist set of drawing inks :
The inks are a great selection of blue and green tones, but I wanted to play a bit with the colours..so I wondered if they could be combined with picket fence distress stain to create softer tones ... To create the background I scribbled some of the stains across my craft sheet and also swiped some picket fence stain, spritzed and the dragged my piece of mountboard through.
I then heated and dabbed more colour.....hopefully you can see some darker mottled areas where less of the picket fence was picked up.
Once sure this was totally dry I inked up the text/numbers piece from Wendy Vecchi set love to make art with broken china and embossed using clear detail embossing powder...( can you spot my mistake?!). I then added these gorgeous leaves from Wendy Vecchi , inked in evergreen bough. The sentiment is stamped in olive archival and clear embossed a trick I saw over at the lovely Alison's blog here.
I also randomly stamped the chicken wire stamp, such a hugely useful background stamp...Now onto the flowers. these are from Hearfellt Creations delicate aster set and make amazing blooms!
These were coloured by making a sheet of dappled cardstock with the drawing inks, randomly dipped into left overs on craft sheet and then stamped in olive archival. I could not resist adding some wire for stems and these cute bells for centres!
