Purple Haze

  • ·         Firstly I put blobs of Masking Fluid in 3 places on the card. Using a straw I blew the fluid outwards. I must admit that I did have to practice the blowing as my first few attempts went completely wrong! Then waited for it to dry.
  • ·         Sprinkled infusions. Spritzed with water. Left to dry.
  • ·         Rubbed the masking fluid to remove it (I thought they looked like dandelion heads).
  • ·         Using my favourite PaperArtsy stamps I embossed the images with white embossing powder.
  • ·         I coloured in the stamped images my new Seth Apter Fresco paints, so obviously I had to use each colour!
  • ·         Added distress stickles which by a happy accident took on the infusion colours.
  • ·         For the flower stalks I used white 3D glue. Once insitu I thought they looked really out of place but as they dried the glue also absorbed some of the infusions, flattening a little so looked more connected to the design.
  • ·         Finished with a splattering of pearl white paint then mounted onto black card.
  •       Inspiration for my design came from a post by Wanda
