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
