Breeze .....

Made a card with mainly AAll & Create stamps .....

I used a white card blank as the base. I cut a smaller matt from white card and coloured this with washes made from Distress Inks in old paper, frayed burlap and spun sugar. I then stamped the Lotus blossom (AAll & Create - Tracy Evans) in Versafine black ink onto the background.

I then stamped another of the same on more white card and coloured with Ecoline Brushpens in bright yellow and pale orange and then trimmed out each of the petals for later application. The words In the Breeze were also trimmed out and coloured with a wash made with Distress Oxide in scattered straw and these were applied over the original words..

The butterfly (Darkroom Door) was stamped in sepia Archival ink on white card, trimmed out and coloured with a wash of worn lipstick Distress Ink and treated with Glossy Accents.

The background was stamped with numbers & screwheads in more Distress Oxides., some lines were added with pink Posca pen. I also used a gold to add further highlights.

I then assembled the lotus petals (some on foam pads) over the base image and used a white Posca pen to add some highlights. I then stamped the words Butter Fly (AAll & Create) coloured with a wash in Frayed burlap Distress Oxide before applying onto the background and adding the butterfly on the lotus.

I then edged the background with scattered straw Distress Oxide and matter onto dark pink card. This was then attached to the card blank to finish.

  1. Stunning - a dramatic use of the lotus flower, and with the dimension must look amazing in real life, Sid.
