Got to spend some time in my creative space today so I'm working on some challenge pieces. This one is for the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog. The theme is to feature a word. I chose the word 'art' and made faux letterblocks to start off my piece.
On a scrap piece of cream cardstock I used Scattered Straw, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo distress inks before stamping the grid background in Sepia Archival ink (Wendy's Flower Art) and the leafy background (Wendy's Rose Art 2) in Olive Archival ink.
The leafy vine is a Sizzix die that got lots of TLC from several brown distress inks as well as a red one. The butterfly (Wendy's Make Mini Art) was stamped on a scrap of acetate in Black Archival ink. Using Sharpie markers and a Sepia Copic marker I colored the wings on the reverse side. With a little bit of heat I was able to bend the wings forward, as if in flight. The sentiment is from Hampton Arts.
Well, back to my creative space so I can make more art...this time for the EWV challenge.
