Rainbow Lady Challenge - Monotone


I am rather pleased with this skinny. I have made it for the Rainbow Lady Challenge, which this week was monotone - obvioulsy I chose the colour green. But the reason I am rather proud of it is because I tried a new transfer technique and the main image is a transfer. I used lettuce adirondak acrylic paint from the dabber, applied with a paint brush and stuck the photocopy of the image into the paint whist still wet. Left the whole lot to dry for about an hour, then using water, gently started to rub the paper away and I was left with this wonderful image. I then added a flourish to the top left and a scratches image to the left side using olive stazon ink. To finish, I added a piece of green organza ribbon and a button

beautiful Sam - the transfer has worked out really well - love the colour and the way you've brought it all together with the additional stamping

Brill, brill, brill - much better effect from the transfer technique I tried but I think it's better with a photocopy (or laser printed image) because inkjet ink runs.

EXCELLENT!!!!
