I started with a piece of Speciality Stamping Paper and dotted it with Archival re-inkers in Tree Branch, Hydrangea and Orange Blossom. Then I squirted rubbing alcohol over the ink, now I was a little over zealous with the ink and as this was my last piece of SS paper I had to carry on !
I then used a Prima stencil with Tree Branch Archival ink, I then used the same stencil with Hydrangea and Dandelion Archival ink.
I cut the paper down to A5 size and then I used the Dots and Stripes border stencil using Potting Soil Archival ink down the side of the page and the Dotty stencil over parts of the page. I stamped the border from The Beauty of Art set using Hydrangea Archival ink.
I then used the From the Garden stencil and stencilled the flower first of all with white acrylic paint when it was dry I re-positioned the stencil and then stencilled over the top with yellow acrylic paint.
I carried on layering up the colours but not completely covering the layer below.
Finishing the flower with a dark red but not all over only in the centre and on the tips of the petals.
I repeated the process with 2 further flowers. I stamped the words from the True Art and Approved Art stamp sets using black Archival ink. I also used the Vintage Mesh stamp with Potting Soil Archival ink.
I used the Tim Holtz mini bird and cage die and rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink over them and rubbed some Onyxite Treasure Gold over the cage. To finish I added some lace and buttons.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project !
