Hi this week over at Simon Says Stamp And Show their challeng is 'Spritz, spray or stencil'.After a few days thought I decided I would do a tag, something with the cosmic shimmer vintage sprays and the Fleur de lys die that I have, First I cut out my Fleur de lys and used the outer as a stencil to colour the image with some of the red distress ink pads, I then used the cut out image as a mask and inked the background with the paper and pumice stone inks.I stamped over the whole image with a cover the card fleur de lys stamp in sepia archival ink, this was ran through a text embossing folder to give me a negative embossed image. I then went over the whole tag lightly with some vintage photo and walnut stain inks, going heavier around the edges, finally I put the stencil down again and went over the fleur de lys again with a bright red ink just to make it stand out a little more. I then sprayed the cut out fleur with some normal red cosmic shimmer sprays and embossed with a floral folder, lightly stained the raised area with distress inks.This was then going to be positioned on the tag, how ever I did not like this, it was just to dark.I thought a little longer and thought I would use the elements in a journal page. I sprayed the page with a mix of dyes, the turquoise dylusion and more of the vintage cosmic shimmers.I stamped areas with the cover a card stamp again and a mesh stamp for some texture, the spots were added with white acrylic paint sponged through a stencil and the ribbon was added for some stark contrast. I tore the tag up and used a paper clip to attach it to the page.The die cut fleur was inverted and stuck down. Now the hard part, writing or thoughts, not my strong point. fleur de lys always remind me of regality so I came up with the quote 'in our hearts we are all kings' these were cut using one of Tims text dies and they were sprayed with the same bright red cosmic shimmer.Finally I added the crown embellishment from Tim, this was coloured with gold alcohol ink and then aged with a couple of other colours to muddy it up a little.
I will also be entering this into the Frilly And Funkie challenge, their challenge is 'show some texture'
Sorry if this is to much typing and waffle. let me know.
thanks for stopping by, mark.
