This is a crafty individuals stamp - as it the beauty words too. I have spritzed the background with a mixture of the new cosmic shimmer mister colours - teal wash, mango blush and rose pink and then handdrawn the swirls with the words with a letraset fine marker. Finally it needed a little more grunging so I used my crafty individuals crackle stamp (a must for every stampers craft box!!) with a little Aged Mahogany distress ink to fill in some of the background area.
This owl is from Elusive Images - as re the branches in the corner (retro vases set). I started again with a spritzed backround - teal wash, ice blue and a hint of rose pink. I stamped my owl with archival black and hand drew in the branch. The image stamp is also elusive images. As a final finishing touch it was a little empty at the bottom so I've handrawn little stitched borders and wording.
This hasn't scanned very well - it's much more vibrant in real life! This is really simple in design. Spritzed background again - same colours as before but heavier. Then a little tattered rose distress ink directly over the top - ink pad to paper - then I've stamped the Elusive images design using archival black in a pattern around the page and coloured in using my cheap & cheerful 50p gold gel pens as seen on the website!. Finally I've written the title - but if you were not confident using freehand - use letter stamps to create your heading.
Would love to know what you all think!!
