Just a quick post today. Well Eileen godwin who is the queen of colour and distress inks has been using these goosebumps. i really liked the look she achieved with it.As i don't have this stuff I tried to improvise.
I inked a piece of centura pearl card on plain side not shimmery with distress inks. I think i used spiced marmalade, tumbled glass. mustard seed and peeled paint and worn lipstick. I spritzed with water and dried with tissue. Using same colours i smeared them on an acrylic block, spritzed liberally with water and stamped on top, thus achieving those smears.
Then i stamped the lavinia roses in black archival and also a little bit of crackle for grasses. This is where i improvise now. I used frantage embossing enamels to try and mimic the goosebumps. I mixed different whites and got some fragments caught in them. Then i matted and layered and finished card off with some matching Sweet lilac flowers.
I hope you like my offering today, Theresa xx
