Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges today we are focusing on...
Things with Wings...
I had just bought a wonderful dragonfly stamp set when I found out about this challenge - how lucky!!!
So straight away I went to have a play with inks....
I had also finally managed to get hold of one of my favourite stencils too - so that had to come into the playtime as well...
I dabbed some of my favourite distress inks over the stencil - Mown Lawn, Shaded Lilac, Evergreen Bough and Tumbled Grass. Then I spritzed with water and pressed some white card down on the inky stencil.
I left it to dry and then began to blend some more inks over the card. I used mainly Mown Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac for this...
Then I stamped some of the dragonfly stamps over the card using Mown Lawn and Tumbled Glass..
I also went for an archival ink to add a vivid layer of stamping - for this I went for Cornflower Blue.
I diluted some white paint and splattered it over the card - hard to see in this photo, but it is there!-
I edged the card with a little Black Soot DI and stuck it onto a card.
I swirled some Distress stains onto the craft mat - I used Evergreen Bough, Shabby Shutters and Dusty Concord. I swirled some white card in this and left it to dry. When dry I stamped a picture of a dragonfly in Jet Black Archival ink.
I painted the wings with Decoart Turquoise Interference paint (sadly doesn't show up too well in the photo)
I used sticky pads to raise the dragonfly up off the card.
I used pale green gems for the eyes....
I used a silver tag with the word 'Journey' on it.
And there is my 'Things with Wings' card....Hope you like it!
