Sing From The Soul

This week I have used the SONGBIRDS plate from Artistic Outpost.
I cannot remember the last time I used purple in any of my creations so today I thought I would challenge myself to use purple in some way. I spritzed white card with water and then brayered Dustry Concord Distress Paint over the card and then brayered Peeled Paint over the top, brayering only lightly so that the first layer is still visible. I also added a touch of background stamping using the background stamp from the GENERATION REDUX plate using Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  Once I was happy with the background I then embossed the inked backdrop to add a further layer of interest.
I then applied some White Fire Wax over the embossed design to highlight the texture and detail further. I brayered a second piece of white card with Dusty Concord Distress Paint, dried with a heat tool and then stamped the ornate frame with Potting Soil Archival Ink, cut out the frame and then stamped the Songbirds to the centre of the frame and added to the centre of the card.
I added a banner to the card, stamping the sentiment with Potting Soil Archival Ink and colouring with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
I also included some seam binding which I died with Peeled Paint Distress Ink along with a dimensional flower and tiny tag with the word SONG stamped from the SERENITY plate.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

So pretty! Strong, yet feminine with a killer background. I love that color. You're right. You don't normally use that color. But you should! It's awesome!
Beautiful as always!
