For this week, I dipped into Infusions….once again! This time not only to stain the Alterables Surface and calico but also used to stamp the focal image.
Infusions:- Black Knight, The Sage, Golden Sands, Orange County, Lemoncello
Crop-A-Dile (or similar hole punch)
Extras:- Calico, tree bark, rusted fabric (calico, white vinegar and PaperArtsy Rust Powder), Idea-ology Tiny Attacher, Prima wax cord
After applying Grunge Paste to postcard panel, heat dry, then apply the Infusions, generously misting with water and allowing colours to drip.
A note:- I also like to sprinkle the Infusions onto my craft sheet if I know I am using the Infusions beyond staining the substrate.
At this stage, stain strips of calico with the Infusions and water. Excess moisture can be removed by sandwiching the calico between kitchen paper.
Cut tree bark to size suitable for the stamped focal. Paint the dry Infusion crystals onto the butterfly then mist with water. Stamp onto the tree bark. I defined the butterfly with Black Knight and lightly stained the surrounding area with The Sage and Lemoncello. If you like your stamped images to be perfect then I would probably suggest not to stamp with Infusions onto such a textured surface as tree bark.
Partially ink up sentiment, stamping onto a smaller panel of tree bark. Punch a hole, threading throw wax cord.
Assemble the panel, gathering the stamped panels, Gypsy Cord, scraps of stained tree bark and rusted fabric and not forgetting the Infusions stained calico.
Until next time, when I cannot promise that I will not be, once again, dipping into Infusions!
