Don't you love it when you experiment and you like it? You take that 50/50 chance. It could turn out great....or another file for the trash bin.
Well between last night and this morning I took a chance on a technique I wanted to try. And I think it worked. I think ;)
Here's my card:
I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil Elevator Gate and Light Modeling Paste by Liquitex. Here is TCW's picture of the stencil:
It's a little hard to look at but it produces beautiful results! So I used the paste over my white card stock panel. Then I took a flower stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle's Stamp Set 429 Blossoms and stamped it into the bottom part of the modeling paste. It's a crazy effect.
I let it dry over night. I wasn't so sure about it. Then this morning I took a little broken china distress paint and watered it down with a water brush and painted the sky. That seems to look pretty cool. For the flower centers I used Close to My Heart Sunny Yellow Re-Inker which I also diluted with water. Once those centers were painted I fell in love-or like anyways with the little scene I had created.
The butterfly die is from Cheery Lynn Designs. Here is a side view of the card. I think the shadow from the butterfly is cool. :) Also, I inked the edges of the card with Dusty Concorde distress ink. It needs just a little definition.
All of this wouldn't be possible without the wonderful inspirational photo at Inkspirational Challenges #37-photo inkspiration. Yay! :)
Until next time my friends...what techniques are you waiting to try?
