I decided to showcase the fabulous Generation Redux
plate this week, I have admired this plate for a long time and when it arrived a
few days ago I knew this would have to be inked immediately.
applied Wendy Vecchi's Crackled Texture Paste to the backdrop and then
applied Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over the crackle
once dry to give a wonderful aged feel. I die cut an Ornate Frame from
white card, stamped the vintage image to the central panel which has
also had Crackled Texture Paste applied and I coloured the outer frame
with Black Soot Distress Ink.
crackle seemed perfect for the vintage image, adding wonderful texture
and a fantastic aged feel to my piece. I also added background stamping
using the numbers from the same plate stamped with Black Archival Ink.
added a repeat stamping of the focal image, this time to the oval panel
only, colouring the backdrop with Distress Inks and flicking with
water. The hearts are a gift from my fellow team member Linda and fitted
perfectly into my design.
To complete I added 'Life Moments' sentiment which I thought fitted perfectly with the focal images.
