This months Indigo blu blog challenge is all about words. So I got out my stamps to see wish sentiments i had. This is one of my favourites ones from IB.
So i thought of making a feature of the background. I started by putting distress inks on the largest slim jim. I used forest moss, shabby shutters, mustard seed, dried marigold, picked raspberry,seedless preserve and faded jeans. I spritzed with water and pressed it down on a piece of white card.
Then i started to add more interest to background using art set of stamps and the same distress inks. Using black archival ink after drying background i stamped the grasses and the butterfly. I heat set these. Then i stamped and clear embossed the sentiment. To make it stand out I die cut it with spellbinders and matted it on black. I also tried to bleach some of the background colour off it.
I thought i'd highlight the butterfly a little bit by adding some clear wink of stella but no matter how many pics i took i don't think you can see it. I also added a trail in white enamel from Rangers.
I matted it on complimentary card and finished it with some black enamel.
I do hope you like my make and as always would love your comments, Theresa xx
