Here are a few of the backgrounds that were created during my exploration of this technique:
|Another example, this one is using Silks and is reversed Stenciled in the same manner as demonstrated in the video. Not bad, will use if for another project later. To "bold for this project. |
|Background prior to stenciling. This was Water Color paper misted with a mixture of water and Primary elements. I went with less concentration of color to give a soft background with areas of more intensity. |
|The background supports the focal images without being overwhelming. |
The ribbon was created by spraying and daubing Radiant Rain products as well as the same sprays used on the background to create a harmonious composition on Seam Binding.
|Beginning of ribbon coloring. Once the ink is laid down, water is added and then the ribbon is kneaded to blend and distribute the colorant. I appears very bright and bold here, but once dried, matched the background very well. |
|The ink was blotted up to give a faded distressed feel. This wasn't necessary as most of it was covered with the focal background. But is a good technique to use for another project.|
I combined: embossing powder fine detail, with chunky. Glitter, both fine micro glitter and Distress. Distress Embossing Powder, Glittered Embossing Powder, plus some of the samples that I had received from Sweet Stamps.
Once embossed, they were further enhanced with the Emperor's Gold Silk and Radiant Rain Sprays.
Final step was to distress the background and apply ink to the edges and enhance the colors within the background. I find that Distress Ink goes with everything!!
