Claudine showed us how to use same paint and crinkled tissue paper to make our backgrounds, here is my take.
Used imagination Crafts Silkies for both backgrounds then sprayed some orange DecoArt mister which when sprayed with water gives great drippage. Found some white tissue paper which was already decorated from Fortnum and Mason, a friend sent it to me a while back and am so glad it came in handy! It hasn’t photographed well but if you enlarge the pictures you can see the words.
The fabulous head is off Dylusions stamp plate called Strength DYR 44536 and the sentiment is off Dylusions plate Don’t hold Back DYR 44505.
Used Pitt Pens skin tones to colour the face, she looks like she’s had a tad too long on the tanning bed and don’t you love her attitude lol.
Really pleased with how this one turned out, before adding Mink (6072 by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique)to the APC i added some Hansa Yellow Pan Pastel to add a glow around her. I stamped her onto an old book page, coloured her in using the Nature set from Spectrum Noir and blended the colours using Zest It.
The Dyan Reaveley stencil with Alphabets was needed to go over the pale white background as it needed some drama. I used the Stabilo All black pencil around the edges and around the words, added a drop of water and hey presto the magic happened, there it was the smudge look i have been searching for, i was a very happy crafter at that moment.
Added Mink and my hand written words which i would like to share with all my lovely Followers, wishing you a very Happy 2015 and hope your year is filled with Love, Light, Peace, Happiness and Creativity.
Thanks for dropping by and look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
