Lotstodo Week 2 - In the News


Hilda has set the theme of 'in the news' for week 2 of the Lotstodo challenge. I stamped my flower images with black stazon directly onto a newspaper, mounted them onto card, cut them out and used tattered rose distressed inks to colour them. I used Crafty Individuals background papers and stamped a few dandelion images onto the paper, again using black stazon. 2 of the flowers are flush to the background and for the middle one I used foam pads. I put a black gem in the middle of each flower to embellish.


This is my second piece for this weeks challenge. I used the tape lifting technique demonstrated in full in the techniques blog. The picture has also been uplifted in the same way. I randomly stuck the tape over the fat page. Coloured with latte, ginger and caramel alcohol inks, added an embellishment and used safmat to add the words 'years gone by'.

Brill - I've still not tried this tape lifting thingy but you have certainly got the knack. I know someone who I could give that second one to - so might have a go at copying (oops, sorry, 'lifting') your design when her birthday comes round.
