here is my latest creation:
This card seems relatively simple but it took quite a bit work to make it. The background was created from 6" x 6" heavy water color paper. I sprayed purple distress ink in one corner and turquoise distress ink in diagonally opposite corner. Then I sprayed some water on both inked areas and spread them with paintbrush. After ink was dry I dabbed a coat of gesso. When that layer was dry I applied home made texture paste through my new Finnabair doily stencil. I heavily distressed the edges of the paper. I created a ruffled border with some embroidered ribbon.
The flowers started off as white cardstock, which I inked with Seedless Preserve and Peacock Feather Distress ink. Then I made my flowers and dabbed some gesso on the tips of the petals.
