Ephemoire March

Hi all

I have a new video and project to share today,  I tried holding the camera as i filmed this time to get a better shot of the completed projects but this only works if you only need one hand lol. its a bit like those found footage videos so next time i make a creepy project i am going Blair Witch on you all lol. I started using prompt notes as you can see in the video. This is helping me to stop saying um everytime i stop to think so i will keep using them until i no longer babble incoherently. 

I used the Vintage collage 2 papers on the base of the card and then added texture stamps and stencils to the background. Then i added ink. 

The layers are a die cut chicken wire cut from the You Give Me Wings papers which are pastels and lightly patterned so great for layers. Then i dyed some cheese cloth because it gets all distressed when you ink it and then dry it out with a heat tool.

The topper is one of the flowers from the Birds,Bunnies and Blooms stamp set. The amount of times i had to keep saying that was mental. I coloured the image in useing Brusho Powders to get a watercolour effect. I added this to a little die cut tag and wrapped thread around it. 

This is usung the new Fairy Children stamp set which will be in the store soon. I wanted to try a less busy layered look so i added ink to the edges of the card and then used texture stamps. I used different coloured ink pads to layer the stamps.

I used ink to colour in the fsh and marker pens on the fairies. I print out a few images and colour in the detailed parts separately.  I then cut each piece out and layer them like decoupage to stop the colours bleeding into each other.
