week I am showcasing the feminine image from the Gatsby stamp set,
stamping her onto a die cut heart, adding shading around the edges with
Fired Brick Distress Ink and colouring with pencils. I have also
included rusty wire to highlight the focal image, stapled into place.
began by applying a touch of Fired Brick and Hickory Smoke Distress
Paints to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then mopping
up the paint with my white card and then drying with a heat tool. I
then dabbed the card into any remaining paint and dried once again with a
applied Fired Brick Distress Ink over the Dot Fade Layering Stencil and
then repeated once again using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, adding yet a
further layer of interest to the background. I also die cut two smaller
hearts which I coloured with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and added a few
delicate splatters to the hearts and to the background of the card
using Fired Brick Distress Paint. I added three strips of Tissue Tape
behind the focal image for further interest and texture.
applied DecoArt Fluid Acrylic Titanium White over a Heart Layering
Stencil to add contrast to my design, along with scratchy paint lines
using an old credit card and Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic.
