Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful...
Here is a card that I have made for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge for June "Beautiful Blooms".
This is a stunning stamp by Sheena Douglass. I firstly stamped the rose with Distress Inks and then masked the image over with drawing gum. I then used Aquatints to paint the background straight over the image and the masking fluid. When dry I placed a stencil over the card and spritzed with water and lifted the stencil immediately. When it dries you see the lovely image of your stencil come through in a lovely diluted form. I then rubbed off the masking fluid and with an almost dry paint brush (just damp) I moved the distress ink around on the flower and the leaves and painted in the stem.
Some matching Distress Ink around the edge to give some depth and a stamped sentiment.
A stunning flower and I think the colours here really make the rose "pop" off of the page.
I would like to enter this in to the Fashionable Stamping Challenge for June "Beautiful Blooms".
Happy with that! Hope you like it too.
