I have been working with the fabulous Vintaj Patina's from The Stamp Attic this week and working outside my comfort zone. Those of you that are familiar with my artwork know that I love my vintage, grungy colours, although I do work with bright colours on occasion too. However, I rarely use purple in my artwork so it was time to put that right and experiment a little.
Tag and Bookplate die and embossed with the Postale Texture Fade and then coloured with the Vintaj Patina's. To embellish I added one of the Monarch Butterfly brass blanks which has been embossed with the Fern Fronds embossing folder and again coloured with the Patina's and attached with jump rings to coordinated ribbon. I have then used the Precision Sanding Block
to highlight the raised areas and reveal some of the brass. I coloured a
piece of white card with broken china, dusty concord and shaded lilac Distress Inks,
applying the ink to my non stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and
mopping up with my card. adding the sentiment from Wendy's An Eye For Art with black Archival Ink.
Mini Butterflies die, adding further dimension with the Pen Nibs.
Film Strip Ribbon has been stapled into place and FLY added using Alpha Parts.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
