I Brake For Lacey Springy Flowers...
The main image, Kerr Jar, was colored with copic markers. I added some extra dimension and interest by double stamping, coloring and popping up several parts of the image. Most folks find this type of paper piecing too tedious, but I find it so therapeutic! It's usually the time during my creative process when I am completely aborbed, and therefore, completely stress free!
I wanted to create a background worthy of this fabby image. My first thought was to use the September 2013 Technique Junkie tutorial, Distressed Rainbow Strips, but after all that therapeutic piecing, I wanted a simpler attempt with a similar result. I also wanted to use Lace Borders which is not a large background, but several lacey strip stamps. I could not be happier with my result!
I added each of the lace strip stamps to a block and then applied the following distress inks: Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Spun Sugar. Sounds like a recipe, no? After applying the inks, I spritzed with water and stamped onto white cardstock. I just adore it!
