Goodly Afternoon Stampfans, sorry for the lateness of my arrival today - yonder t'internet has been playing up! I am here now though with a Studio 490 Art Parts piece to show you. The base of the piece is from the Spools set and it has some Florals and Leaves Art Parts on it... the spool and large floral were coloured with Distress Stains - Wild Honey for them with a smidge of Aged Mahogany DI around the edges. I overstamped using a gorgeous 490 background stamp and Plum Archival ink. The leaves were coloured with Peeled Paint Stain and overstamped with a different background (my fave Squolka Dot) and Olive Archival ink. I chopped the leaf into two pieces so it fitted on top of the spool and also on the stalk.

Once they were all coloured, I set about making a Grunge rose using my fave six petal stamp from the Accents for Art stamp set. This was coloured with Wild Honey DI - the stamping was done with more Plum Archival and a smidge of Aged Mahogany for the edging. This was added to the top of the spool along with an Ornate Frame and some Clearly For Art (clear flavour) butterflies.

The ingredients I used are:

Studio 490 stamps: Optical Art, Accents For Art & Art Colors Life
Studio 490 Art Parts: Spools, Florals, Leaves
Distress Stains
Distress Ink
Archival Ink

Thanks for looking! TTFN
