Hi everyone I feel like summer is here as I have just returned from Corfu.
I must say I fell in love with it and would Love to live
there (a dream me thinks!!!).
Back to the real world I have for you today a
butterfly and texture plaque.
I started by colouring a tag with Adirondack colour
wash which I then sprayed with water.
I put clear texture paste through the Swirl mask.
Once dry I cut out a strip and placed it across the middle
I sealed the whole thing with Matt sealer.
Next I used antiquing cream to highlight the swirls or you could use
acrylic paint and just before its dry knock
it back with a baby wipe.
A close up
I stamped the butterfly x2 off the insect plate onto some extra card
that had been coloured the same way as the main plaque.
I used versa fine black ink and clear embossed the butterfly
this got antiquated as well
Round the edges I used crackle paste and allowed to dry.
I used a torn page to go across the middle strip which
i coloured with spiced marmalade distress ink.
The crackle paste was painted with acrylic paint to match it in.
I triple embossed create stamp and cut out
the letters to form the art.
To finish off I highlighted it all with gilding wax.
Thank you for popping by & don't forget to
let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
