It was this post by Lynne Moncrieff that got me thinking…
Lynne showed that text alone can look amazing but i got carried away and incorporated a few of the techniques that i haven’t tried so far. Brayering using the Fresco paints was so much fun, more than i thought it was going to be and now i love it!
To start with i recycled a piece of card packaging from a well know soda drink.
Covered the piece in DecoArt Tinting Base as i wanted a smooth base not a textured one. One coat gives perfect coverage and you use so little.
Over the top added a single layer of kitchen roll mop up, you can just about see the book pages underneath.
Next layer were the Sara Naumann stamp set ESN08 words using Archival Black ink pad.
Brayered over the top of the words using Fresco Snowflake paint, this caught all the texture of the mop up towel and i like the way it knocks the inked stamps back.
A vellum saying had the edges softened and adhered on top of the inked words.
Finally i added a couple of the free Lavinia stamps, the Fairy and the stars because you can never have enough starlight.
The bow was added and the corners cut off to make a Tag.
Thanks for dropping by today looking forward to your lovely comments.
