I've been creating backgrounds using my silks and primary elements mixed with PA satin glaze. I sponged carmen silks through a TH honeycomb stencil and once dry coloured the tag with ginger peach silks. I mixed up the chestnut brown primary elements with satin glaze and used cut n dry through a new stencil.
I painted one of the embossed dragonflies that Emma kindly cut and embossed for us and gave us at the weekend, so I thought I ought to use one!! It's painted with satin glaze mixed with true blue, royal orchid and moss agate and teal zircon silks for the body.
I added some platinum distress stickles and some treasure gold to the dragonfly. Added some mini script and splats to the tag in red and brown stazon, some tissue tape, idea-o-logy gears etc.
And then I did another one using the ice silk as a resist through the honeycomb stencil and coloured with ginger peach silks which is very translucent.
The dragonfly was coloured with a mix of deep coral and satin glaze PE, and the boysenberry and teal zircon silks. I used about 3 different colours of treasure gold on the embossed parts and spiced marmalade distress stickles.
This is a close up of the ice silk acting as a resist, coloured over with the ginger peach and stencilled with chestnut brown and again some stamping.
Country View Crafts have a challenge theme of Sparkle and Shine and it's just a pity you can't see from the photos the lovely glimmer and shine that these products produce.
