Making Art Challenge #2
This little piece of art is for our 2nd challenge on the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group. The challenge this time... use a CHIPBOARD flower with the pigment ink resist tech. In Wendy's first book she shares this on page 23 but she also shares the technique on her blog here. I've used the technique on the background piece (Art Parts 3 1/2" square), on the Maya Road chipboard flowers, and on the grungepaper flourish leaves (a Sizzix die). All the stamps I used are Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 images. Distress Ink colores are... background - wild honey and a touch of crushed olive... large flower - broken china... small flowers - victorian velvet and a touch of dusty concord... leaves - shabby shutters. The butterfly is stamped onto grungepaper, cut out and colored with DIs. Saying stamped with Archival Ink jet black. Black Enamel Accents for the dots. Tim Holtz Ideology pieces to finish things off. Oh, I almost forgot... I also gave the background a spritz of Perfect Pearls Mists sunflower sparkle, the butterfly a spritz of Perfect Pearls Mists turquoise, and the foliage flower and brad a spritz of Pearl Pearls Mists perfect pearl.
