Brakin' For Monday.....
I couldn't help, but play with my bisters again while creating this week's floral project! The bisters become easier to control the more you play with them and produce an intriguing background every time! I'm like a moth to flame when it comes to these amazing pigments!
For this project, I began by creating a floral resist using several images from IBFS's Floral Half Sheet 148A and Floral Half Sheet 148B.. I stamped the images in versamark on water color paper. Then, using white embossing powder, I embossed each of them. Once cooled, I was able to sprinkle bisters in strategic places and mist to create the colorful background you see. I was specific to place only red bisters in the center of the two cone flowers....I love how this turned out!
To finish things off, I used my white signo pen to color the cone flower petals and some distress markers for other accenting. I just got this cute little stampy stapler so, that is now my favorite rustic accent--you might be seeing it a lot for awhile :) Only because I MAY just be tiring of sequins and need a new obsession!
You can stock up on floral images, bisters and so much more over in the IBFS store! Be sure to use my coupon code SAVE10JANE for some sweet savings!
Have an inky week and don't forget to be awesome! TTFN, Jane
