Hello again! This post has been forever in the making!! I have been blogging left, right & centre this week, at every blog but my own :) So here at last is my Special Guest Designer contribution to the Inkido blog this month!!!
You can see the post on the Inkido blog HERE.
I used Inkido papers, butterfly stamp & flowers & tried to see
how colourful I could get with these classic vintagey papers.
I distressed all the papers then inked their edges with dark brown ink & bent, tore,
scrunched & stapled them. Inkido papers are just perfect for this kind of
treatment as they strong so can withstand mists & water treatments too.
I added some touches of black in the way of bling, feathers and netting to enhance the dramatic photos used then tied all the colours together through the use of mists in black, brown, yellow & pink by spraying & splattering.
I added some old book paper for a romantic touch. The photos I used are very 'young & funky' which one may not automatically imagine using with Inkido papers but I suggest you try it! I kept the images small as I took them off my daughter's Facebook page & they were taken using a mobile phone camera.
As she is away at university most of the time this is the only way I get hold
of any photos of her as I'm sure any other mothers of teenagers will understand :)
As well as Inkido products I used netting from Webster's Pages, mists from Lindy's
Stamp Gang & flourishes from Flourish with a Bling, as well as old book papers,
staples, mesh tape, gesso & a feather :) Happy Weekend everyone :)
