Here is the final instalment in the Parisian trilogy, very different style to yesterday's project.
I started out with the lovely new mini stencils from Prima that come in a set of 5. They are all bolted together which I didn't quite get the idea of, so I snipped them apart and spritzed over the Eiffel tower with meadow green Glimmer Mist. Then leaving the stencil in place I layered one of the frames from the same set over the top and then used my favorite Glimmer Mist - Dewberry.
I stamped all around the edges in VersaFine blank ink using a making Memories stamp set called Passport. The edges of the paper were then distressed using a water technique. I cut a frame from packing card and painted it with cream acrylic paint. I stamped it with blue text from PaperArtsy and black Laura Ashley butterflies (see I said the black butterflies were now a regular feature - think I need them on my blog header). After a good sanding to rough all the edges up, I rubbed gold metallic rub around them.
I like the look of the printers blocks that people like Hels use on their projects, but I don't have any, so I decided to create some. I cut plain packing card and inked it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I then reversed some old chipboard letters and splattered them with various colours of acrylic paint. Stuck it all together with a Cosmo Cricket tag and flower and I was done.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot September - All distressed
Artistic Stamper - Rainbow (I've packed as many colours in there as I could)
Sunday Stamper #119 - All kinds of everything
Stamp Man Challenge #5 - Distress
Daring Card Makers - Masks (lucky fluke that they launched that one today!)
One last thing. Don't forget if you splatter paint anything, put some spare white card underneath and you automatically get an extra piece of art.....
.......or perhaps that's just a load of old Pollock's.
