For my project I wanted to use some of my new Spellbinders Dies as well as get my hands inky with one of my favorite inks that I haven't used in ages- Rangers distress ink. To start my project, I stamped the daffodil center image from Breath of Spring with Memento Rich Cocoa on Neenah Solar Crest White. The 3rd die from the Labels Ten Nestabilites frames the my JustRite Rite Center beautifully. Using a make up sponge I distressed the edeges with antique linen. Next I colored my image using the following Copic Colors. To create the mat layer behind my floral image I used die 6 (the largest die) from the Labels Eleven Nest and dry embossed it using my new Morocaan Screen Embossing Folder.
To create the color variation in my embossed Morocaan Screen I used two colors of distress ink and added them one layer at a time. For the first distressed layer I used Antique Linen.Then I used my make-up wedge to work in another layer of color using Broken China to pick up the color from my background paper. Next I cut a black frame using the large frame in the Classic Frameabilites die series.To highlight the embossed area I hit the high spots with a Color Box Cats Eye Pigment Gold Brush Pad.
To create my sentiment I used the center sentiment from Seeds of Kindness -- and just squealed with delight when I saw how perfectly Die One of Labels Ten framed this sentiment. To distress this stamped image I used tea dye distressed ink.
