I’ve not been in cardmaking mode but when I had some of my PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection stamps out for other projects, I thought I’d make this card.
One colour of Infusion, Royal Blood was used to colour watercolour paper for the background panel and stamped focal and element, used with a Dinky Stencil and I also incorporated mop-up papers. Little pots of magic!
Script Stamp - I used a PaperArtsy ESN Stamp
Martha Stewart Metallic Craft Acrylic – Rust and Copper Rose
Extras:- Various mop up papers, copper coloured fabric, rusty tin wire
Dresden Trim (Prima) – substitute with die cut
After applying Infusions to watercolour paper panel, stamp script. Working on a craft sheet, lightly mist the Infusion and with a foam brush or cosmetic sponge, pick up a little of the colour (you can dab off any excess onto kitchen paper towel) then apply to the Distressed Harlequin stencil. Once dry, adhere panel to cardbase.
Onto a piece of watercolour paper, apply Infusions (I also applied a touch of Memory Hardware Powder as I happened to have a little on my craft sheet at the time – yes, this is generally how I work!). Stamp LPC image and ink up a wee element from one of the other stamps from this set. I only partially used the main focal image instead of working with the full stamp.
I incorporated dried mop-up papers – kitchen paper towel and some leftover scraps from other projects. If you don’t have any, simply apply Infusions and metallic paints to various papers. A mixture of textures is always interesting.
Layer stamped images and the various mop up papers. I also added a teeny piece of resin paper and a piece of beautiful copper coloured fabric I was lucky enough to receive from my friend Dorthe.
A couple of final touches to embellish the focal image:- apply Rust Paste to a piece of Dresden Trim (or die-cut) and coil rusty tin wire.
Until next time
