Would you believe that huge pot was for a tiny broken bone in her foot?
The next thing I want to share is another of my Elusive Images DT application makes. This one had a brief of using their signature colours of Teal and Brown and I decided to try something using one of my favourite techniques of masking with some stamping over the top.
I love blending the colours to get a soft effect over the masks and then finish off with some stamping. I used Heidi Swapp masks, first the circle with the butterflies over the top and then I removed the circle, put the butterflies back and finished the blending, If I remember correctly I used Adirondack Espresso and Broken China Distress Inks. For the overstamping in the corner I think I used Versafine inks.
To finish the card and balance the design I stamped a butterfly from the Elusive Images Patchwork Butterfly plate, cut it out and coloured the image with Distress Inks. I then shaped the wings a little with my fingers and attached it to the card with just the body flat to the surface and the wings with a little silicone glue to support the shaping.
I'm off up to Graphicus, home of Elusive Images, in Barnard Castle for one of their fab Open Days tomorrow. Lots of lovely crafting goodies to buy and wonderful demos to watch. Glenda is doing special 'back to basics' demos for those new stampers who might be a bit daunted by the more advanced techniques. She is an excellent teacher as are the other demonstrators and no question is ever too trivial for them to answer so don't be put off if you are new to this creative hobby. We all had to learn once and this is the way to do it. I still learn something new every time I go.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend too and hope the weather improves upon today. I have to say it's been pretty miserable here all morning but with our weather it could well be glorious tomorrow, Lol! As always, I love to read your comments if you have time to leave one as well as return the visit.
