Coventry Workshop - February 2014.
UPDATE.... Card #1 was created using some torn paper and Distress inks, various colours, plus the Wild Flower Stamp from Lavinia Stamps.
Tear some copy paper to resemble hills or mountains.
Place it down over your work, then use a small sponge with some Distress inks and dab away, moving the 'Hills' as you go, up the page!
Needs some practice but the results can be brilliant and so quick.
How to Create Card #2
Take some Centura Pearl card stock, the reverse, white side, and keeping your fingers VERY clean, plonk various colours of Distress Inks straight down, from the pads, onto a large acrylic block.
Spray some water onto the block allowing the inks to 'mingle' and after masking off the bottom of your white card to keep it clean, 'Squidge' the block down onto the card.
Dry with a heat gun.
Ink up the Designs by Ryn Water Droplet Stamp, and stamp over the top of your inked background.
I added a ribbon to neaten off the bottom edge of the inked section.
Die cut some Butterflies. ( Sizzix /Hero Arts set used here)
Colour them with Distress inks and stamp them with the Water Droplet stamps.
Arrange the butterflies as you like and attach them with sticky pads.The sentiment stamp is from Sheena Douglass.
Centura Pearl card stock. The reverse, white side.
Blend various colours of Distress inks onto your card stock.
Remove the roller from a Speedball Brayer and wrap torn masking tape around it.
Snap it back into place and spray the brayer with water, lots of it!
Roll it quickly, a few times, over your inked background pressing down the brayer as you go. Dry with a heat gun.
Stamp and layer your images ( Sheena Douglass flowers feature here) and finally make a few holes wherever you want with a big bite or hole punch and mat over the top of some white card so you can see the white colour coming through.
