Kitchen foil... not just for cooking!

Hello there!  As promised, here I am with one of my favourite makes from Barbara Gray's last Claritystamp shows on Hochanda.  It was inspired by Emma Williams' article in last month's Making Cards magazine. 


I started off by mod podging kitchen foil onto a piece of 7" square stencil card.  Once dry, I ran it through my ebosser with one of the Savannah stencils. 




I started laying down yellow, blue and bright pink alcohol inks with a blending tool and blending felts.



It wasn't as vibrant as I wanted, so I dripped on the colours direct from the bottle.  That'll do!


I stamped the lions with black soot distress ink, then added some colour using the same alcohol inks with a blending pen.  This was a technique I first tried at one of Maria Simms' monthly Clarity workshops in Shrewsbury.


The detail below shows how the "mane" effect was created with oddments of ribbons and threads.
 

I edged the main piece with gilding wax and glitter, the mounted directly on black for impact.
 

I hope you like it.  Hopefully, I'll be back soon.  I would really like to share my mosaic bangle with you too.  Till next time.  Xxx
