It is my great pleasue to welcome another of our Guest BloggingTeam, this time all the way from India we have Shilpa who creates some beautiful and colourful artwork. Her first post this week features the Just Butterflies stamp set, I know you will love this project.
Hello Everyone, I am super excited to be Guest Designer at Chocolate Baroque this month. For my first project I've Altered Wooden Plaque. I am in love with this Chocolate Baroque Just Butterflies stamp set. It has very beautiful and detail designed butterfly images.
- This is a mixed media piece, so to start with I applied primary coat of white gesso to my plaque. When it dried completely, I applied Finnabair Platinum Crackle paste through Prima Turkish Grunge stencil, let it dry completely to get best crackle effect.
- Next I applied Tim Holtz Distress paints Wilted Violet and Peacock feather randomly on the surface, spritzed water to let color move around. When I satisfied with colors, I dried the surface with heat tool. For more texture I stamped with Chocolate Baroque Abstract Fragment stamp and Azure Staz on ink. And my background was ready.
- Next I stamped Butterflies with Versa Mark ink, used clear embossing powder and heat set it. I've used Sakura watercolor markers to color them.
- Lastly I arranged window, flowers, Butterflies, hearts crystals, "Journey" word on the plaque.
