Hello lovelies, nice to have you here!
First of August - that means a new challenge over at Country View Challenges!
This month the theme is Texture and my talented team mate Miriam is hosting the challenge this time.
I decided to make a card with MUCH texture.
This is what I did:
I took a pre gessoed piece of watercolor paper on which I tried out some stencils. But I didn´t mind, I knew, they would disappear later 😉. I took a stencil and texture paste and started to build up the first layer.
When the paste was dry I randomly spreat embossing ink over the raised parts and sprinkled 3 different shades of Lindy´s embossing powders on top. Then I heat embossed it. I repeated this step several times, until I was happy with the result.
Then I took some orange Starburst Mist to some parts for more color and dried it.
For more contrast I added some black mist.
Now I wanted to have some white space and I added white acrylic paint. For more texture I heated the color until it bubbled - I love this effect!
Now I changed my mind - from white to black. I went over the white space with black Gesso. I also added some light pink acrylic paint and doodled with a white Posca pen.
I matted the paper with pink cardstock and glued it on top of a card.
Then I wanted even more texture and added some marks with stamps.
For my vocal point I used a stamp from LaBlanche. I colored it with distress inks. To give the butterfly some dimension and shine I added a pretty thick layer of Glossy Accents. When dry I put a piece of doily underneath...
....also a piece of cheesecloth and black threat. Then I added the flowers and diecut leaves.
The final touches were made by art stones in different sizes and a hint of glitter.
Here are some close ups:
That´s it for today. I had so much fun making this card!
