What fun I have had this past couple of days .... just messing about with blending inks and a mask and layering stamps and glimmer mist .... and getting very inky fingers ...arms ... and t-shirts.
Why have I never done this before ???? The answer is ...I don't know ...I maybe felt I wasn't an arty type. Like my LO's, these are restrained but then its only the beginning ...I feel there are many more in me which might be far more daring and bold ...but even if I play safe, I like them and had such fun doing them ...and that is what I want to experience again.
This was the first one where I tried glossy accents over a stamp
..... then I played with more shades of ink and several stamps on the next one ... and addeded my punched metal flowers.
.... then I used a cog mask and brighter colours as I became braver
and finally I tried glimmer mist...punched out my own butterfly and flower stencil and added the resulting punched butterfly to give a little 3-D effect.
I learnt a lot ...made loads of mistakes ...and would have done many things differently but for my first attempt I was pleased with the results ...if I do say so myself lol .... and now I at last realize why so many of you out there make tags and ATC's.
I also completed the LO that you could see the start of, on my desk on Wednesday. I shall post it tomorrow, on G the P, when I have written a background story to go with it.
Take Care xx
