Layers, Pearls and Lace mix it for several challenges ...

A second posting for me - almost unheard of .....

At the workshop I went to on Saturday with Sarah Anderson at the Stamp Attic we played about with all sorts of ideas, and this is about leaving white space and letting the image or embellishment do the talking.

This card has been spritzed with two colours of Adirondack Colour Wash Spray but cencentrated to one area of the card only.  We then put together an embellishment to go on top.  Mine has some shrink plastic with paper behind it, which has been coated with embossing power.  I then stamped the heart on some printed paper, and also coated then with embossing powder to give it some body.  I stamped Moon Girl on some scrap paper, coloured her wings with distress ink, and then covered her with embossing power as well.  I have added little bits of lace with some pearls, and also layered some scraps of sheet music behind the whole thing.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp and Show - show us layers

    Very different. I like it how you have done the fairy and layered everything up with the lace behind. I think I would struggle doing something like that. Not used to leaving lots of white area. Hugs x ChrisB
