I was inspired to make these cards by Lynn Kopas' work and whilst no where as fabulous as hers, I really enjoyed making these.
First I stuck on a layer of hessian type material and then added found objects, beads, shells and other trinkets. I covered the whole piece with Gesso. For the first time I used a texture paste and a stencil to create the flourishes - I am now hooked!
Once dry I spritzed blue and green inks onto different areas and stamped the butterfly image. To bring out the texture I dry - brushed gold acrylic paint onto shells and flourishes.
I think I may be making more of these!
I am entering them into the following challenges:
