Leonies Fab Friday #16 - Highlights

I managed to buy 3 of the paint sprays, 2 rubber stamps and 2 stencils at the weekend so here goes.

Using the Quince paint, I sprayed the background of 2 pre-cut ATCs. For 'mystical' I used a brush to colour through part of a stencil using Amber Clay chalk inkpad then for 'imagine' I quickly put the other ATC on top of the stencil to pick up the residue giving a subtle reversed image. I then used Brilliance ink Coffee Bean to stamp the lady onto both ATCs and some cream card. I cut out her face from the cream card and 3D foamed it to the main card. A bit of green for her eyes and red for her lips finished it off. I used the same ink for the word. The bit I had left after cutting out he face made the other ATCs' hair which I stuck down round her face and then used 3D foam to lift the edges. The word is made using a Dymo.

I loved doing this so guess what I shall be up to this weekend?

thank you so much. I can only claim credit thanks to Leonies' example and watching her a couple of weeks ago actually demonstrating the technique. I love all your work. What a talent.
