All sorts of costumed lovelies are parading.... such a fun time of year! I made a little card using a cute winged lady from Oxford Impressions' Masquerade stamp set. I stamped her three times - once on cardstock to color, and twice on vellum to cut out two sets of wings for her - the top wings and the bottom, to give a little depth. Her she is close up:
The background is my first experiment with some National Geographic pages soaked in CitraSolv - Oh. What. Fun!!! The CitraSolv is a little pricey, but if you look at it in the context of "art supplies" (think how much you might pay for gel medium/distress inks in every color/a paper stash to last a century) it's not so bad, LOL! Especially since you can clean up with it too, heeeheeeeee! There are lots of tutorials on the web, and it just comes down to experimenting. I highly recommend it, especially for some spooky Hallowe'en backgrounds.
I love papercrafting, stamping, watercoloring, coloring with markers, and just messing around with art supplies! I'm a former scientific/medical writer from Pennsylvania, and a wanna-be artist and world traveler. Thanks for stopping by!
