Text, Text, Text


This week on the Stampotique challenge blog they have a theme of text.  I really enjoyed making this hanging and to be honest I think it's one of the best things I've made using the Stampotique stamps.

The flower was coloured in mustard seed and ripe persimmon distress ink and spritzed with water before stamping, this blended the colours.  The flower was masked off and Versamark was used to stamp the script and covered with sunflower UTEE.  Again I masked the flower and covered the card with festive berries distress stain. I buffed it up and the script has really popped through.  

I stamped the dragonfly in black stazon onto white card and cut it out. I stamped it again in ultramarine onto acetate, cut it out and stuck it over the top.  It still needed a bit more colour, so I stained the wings on the white card with peacock feathers distress stain.  

Really love how the whole thing came together.

***Edited*** Festive berries is red NOT pink!!!!
