Enjoy Today!

Today I am showcasing the fabulous COLLAGE EQUINOXE stamp plate from Katzelkraft.
To create the background I mixed turqoise and lime paint (Dina Wakley range) with white embossing paste and applied to the background using a palette knife, I love the textural feel this gives to my background. I then dried with a heat tool.
I die cut an ATC from white card using Tim Holtz ATC & Corners die, brayered the background with paint and then stamped the image with Black Archival Ink. I also matted the ATC onto a piece of black card so that it popped against the background. I also included a Botanical Remnant Rub "enjoy today" to the design.
Die cut leaves have been added which I then painted with lime and turquoise paint. I also added random stamping to the background using the text from the COLLAGE DRAGONFLY stamp plate. I also applied white embossing paste through a stencil and added random circles to the background for added interest along with delicate black splatters. I highlighted some of the wonderful texture and dimension with silver Treasure Wax.
Small roses and butterfly embellishments (a gift from Sandra, thank you) were added for further dimension and interest. I also included some coordinated twine for further texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
