Daughter of Atrides

A tag to share made with some Tim Holtz stuff: a Found Relative, a butterfly and a stencil called Thatched.

The Simon September card kit came with some of his Sentiment label stickers that didn't really appeal to me so I used them to cover a manila tag. Then I applied another layer over them using texture paste and the stencil.

I tinted the dress, skin tone and accents using Pitt artist brushes which are made from India ink, are waterproof, permanent and easily applied to the slick surface (highly recommend).

The are some collage bits: the text is from an old book, there's the crown and the flower-like accents (which are actually from an astronomy diagram).

I used some Liquid Pearls along the bottom.

I'm linking up to Simon's Monday challenge--this week's theme is to have "fun with stencils."

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.

More Sunshine Flowers

This image (from Simon's Sunshine Flowers set) was stamped on hot press 140 lb. watercolor paper and then fussy-cut. The flowers were tinted with dollar-store markers and water. I added some Liquid Pearls to embellish. The die-cut text was layered using three stacks.

Sunshine Flowers

 

Simon says "stamp it" this week (no digi images) and it would be nice to use Simon's exclusive products. So that's just what I did.

The stamp set is called Sunshine Flowers and it was part of their monthly kit this month which I decided to splurge on.

I stamped the flower jar on preprinted paper by Lavinia (Scene Scapes Summer Meadow) then cut it out. This way, my flowers and the jar were already tinted.

The background is from who know's where (I've had it for ages); I did some trimming and layering (a portion covered by tissue paper) to create a suitable background for the jar. A bit of a shadow was added to the jar's base.

I didn't feel confident aligning the text (comes with the set) so I stamped it on tissue paper first then cut and pasted it on.

I used the Liquid Pearls that came with the kit to embellish the borders.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.
