Her Spirited Heart by Lynne Moncrieff


This is my first inking of All The Gals. I was eager to play with this stamp set because it is that little bit different from my usual stamp style. 

I wanted to inject as much texture on the page to create interest so randomly applied various items that were already to hand on my work area.


TCW Rebekah Meier Designs – Mini Gothic Romance and Mini Harlequin Circles
PaperArtsy Fresco FinishLondon Fog, Snowflake and Moonlight
IndigoBlu Slap It On
Idea-ology Tiny Attacher
Caran d’ache NeoColorII Watersoluble Crayons
Extras:- Muslin, corrugated cardboard, lace, tissue paper, stained seam binding and stained lace (I previously stained them with Twinkling H20s)



Apply torn muslin, tissue paper, lace and corrugated cardboard onto journal page with Gel Medium.

Use Mini Gothic Romance stencil and texture paste.

Apply Moonlight – I applied it randomly, some areas a wash of Moonlight and in other areas applied straight from the bottle. Create splatters with lilac watersoluble crayon.  Manipulate the paints with heat gun. 

Apply concentrated lilac watersoluble crayon onto lace.

Randomly stamp hand-writing (Textures).

Use Mini Harlequin Circles with London Fog paint and Black Soot Distress Paint. 

Onto cardstock apply texture paste to heart stencil (Mini Gothic Romance).  Once dry scribble lilac watersoluble crayon, mist with water. Fussy cut and edge with London Fog and Black Soot. 

On area of journal page where the heart will be, apply Distress Paint Black Soot with the heart stencil. Heat dry. Adhere texture paste heart with Gel Medium.

Stamp spirited onto painted cardstock scrap. Edge with fine tipped black pen and Black Soot. Adhere to heart with silicone glue.

Stamp Gal onto tissue paper. Adhere to journal page with Slap It On. Embellish Gal with stained lace and seam binding.

To finish the page create more splatters with the lilac and black watersoluble crayons and Snowflake page and embellish with seam binding and a fragment of lace.


Until next week,
