Over at WOW HQ this month we have been given the opportunity to work with some
fantastic stencils and chipboard embellishments from umwowstudio. I couldn't wait to get hold of my stash of tags, cogs, butterfly stencil and hexagon stencil. This also
coinsides with a great blog hop, so follow the trail of blogs for a chance to win some
goodies this month. Hop over to the WOW site to start your journey.
I started with a plain canvas purchased from the Pound shop. I then covered this with white gesso. I then sprayed this with browns, gold and green inks and let it dry, but not before tipping the canvas up to allow the ink to run down the canvas.
I then got my distress inks out and used them to sponge through the butterfly and hexagon stencils with brown, green and red distress inks.
I then used the same techique for the chipboard shapes. I firstly inked up the shapes with Versamark and sprinkled WOW pepper, ebony, bark, gold rush and verdigris. On the butterfly, I used the same but in smaller amounts and added one further layer of Pepper embossing powder all over. On the Tag I have used Bright White with a sprinkle of Ebony added and heat set. Whilst the embossing powder is hot and liquid, I have inked up CREATE word from the 'ME collage' stamps and embedded the word in the tag. I have then added a piece of gross grain ribbon.
Finally stuck this all together on the canvas with Pinflair silicone glue.
