Floral Beginnings by Lynne Moncrieff



This is my first time playing with AB Chipboard Flowers and initially I hit a hurdle as to whether to paint the Chipboard or stain with Matte Sprays but finally decided to simply add lines with a pencil, creating a grungy effect.



In my stash of prepared papers I had this sheet of watercolour paper prepared with That's Crafty media, using white Gesso, Multi-Surface Paints in White, Grey and Black along with Walnut Ink (the crystals dissolved in a spray bottle)

This was adhered to the 8"x8" panel.

For the chipboard flower, simply following the lines with a Stabilo ALL pencil.  

Onto a shipping tag and muslin, spraying Walnut Ink to stain the items. 

To the panel, the muslin is layered with the tag and to this, adding the flower, making some marks with a black ALL pencil.

Stamping the sentiment with Jet Black ink onto found paper stained with Walnut Ink. 

The final touches, adding stamped circle and a few more marks on stained paper.

Thank you for visiting today.
