You Are Loved That Is All

While I’m waiting for one of my projects to dry, thought I’d play along in a couple of challenges. There’s a lot of shimmer on this that my camera does not show in the larger picture…so here’s a close up:

This is a stencil monoprint made with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.  I wanted an aged copper feel, so that’s how I chose the colors to work with.  Easy-peasy, quick as a wink card.  Added a bit of Copper Inka Gold around the edges and a few drips of Copper Perfect Pearls Mist.  And, of course, my usual smattering of sequins.

Not familiar with the stencil monoprint technique?  Here’s a video tutorial that I did last year.

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  watercolor and Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Distress and Versafine
Stamps:  WPlus9 That Is All
All the other stuff:  TCW 630S Mini Chickadee Post stencil, MFT Wonky Rectangles die, Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls Mist, Copper Inka Gold, misc. sequins

Dazzling Diva #71

I’m back with another Dazzling Diva Challenge and here’s our fabulous inspiration for the week:
I love the gorgeous florals on the inspiration piece and here’s where it took me:
I ended up using a piece of Golden Glimmer and marbling it with Inka Gold and PITT Artist Pen Big Brushes. You still get the gold coming through, but the marbled effect gives you yet one more option for working with the metals.  
Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Neenah Solar White and Amy Tangerine Stitched
Stamps:  Altenew
Ink:  My Favorite Things Black Hybrid Ink
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil’ Inker Stitched Rectangles, Ellen Hutson Essentials by Julie Bold Blossom Stand-Alone, Inka Gold, PITT Artist Pen Big Brushes, sequins, adhesives and Add a Little Dazzle craft metal
Golden Glimmer Metal Sheet
The rest of the Divas and I would love to have you join our Dazzling Diva ChallengeUse of AALD craft metal sheets is not a requirement to play along, but we’d love to see you use them!
