PaperArtsy Challenge : Words

The latest challenge at PaperArtsy is "Words"

I decided to use a lovely "Imagine" stamp (I do not know who it is made by) as my main focus. The card behind the stamp is Fresco Paint Moonlight.

For the main background I painted with Eggplant, then used a daisy stencil with Lilac. I washed it over with watered down Snowflake, and then stamped Snowflake and Ink&the Dog Mini 22

PaperArtsy Challenge : Sprays

For the last 2 weeks the challenge over at PaperArtsy has been Sprays.
I don't have many sprays, as they have never really featured in my cards, but I do have some Tattered Angel sprays in the back of the cupboard...
These are not as vibrant as some of the ones used today, so I decided to use them over the paint background as more of a shimmer.

Following  Sara Naumann's recent post I used Fresco paints (Pumpkin Soup, Paprika and London Bus) and brayered them onto the card. I then sprayed a lot of Tattered Angels Gold, copper and autumn leaves and dried it off. It really changed the feel of the card, making it feel almost tacky.
I stamped using Snowflake and Mini 44, Mini 22 and with grey ink Mini 72
The main stamps are JOFY 23 and JOFY 24 and JOFY mini 33
The sentiment is ELB03
The flowers are painted with Fresco paints in London Bus, Claret, Tango, Yellow Submarine and Hey Pesto
