Here's my tag for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge this week where the idea is to include Texture or Raised Areas.
I don't have any Distress Paints (yet!) so used what I have. I started with a Sky Fresco Chalk Paint (Paperartsy) background and then added some Ferro through an Imagination Crafts Leafy Swirl stencil. Once that had dried, I replaced the stencil and painted with green acrylic paint. It was a smidge too wet and soaked under the stencil - nearly threw it away at that stage but then decided to go back in with the Sky which luckily is opaque and covered it up.
The flower uses a variety of acrylic paints (blues, greens, teal & silver) spritzed with water and mopped up with card (see Tim Holtz's tattered floral challenge) and then cut using the Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaf dies. I've overstamped the leaves with the Walesby Flourish stamp in Emerald Archival and some of the flowers with the Mack Rose stamp in Vermillion Archival - stamps are from Oak House Studio. I've layered the flowers up with some spacers and foam pads and then finished with a brad.
So I have raised areas on my background and a raised flower so hope that fills the challenges. Thanks for taking the time to look!!
