I started with the background and used Seasonal Distress Stains Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries.
I spritzed the card with water so that all the colours merged together.
This is what it looked like when it was dry.
I then tore up pieces of printed tissue paper and glued it over the card.
I then gave the card a coat of watered down white acrylic paint to knock back the colour.
When it was dry I stamped over the card using the text from the Artistic Outpost Paper Boy set.
I then used the stamps from the Generation Redux set and stamped onto some masking tape, the sort you use for DIY.
For the flowers I used a technique that I spotted on Tracy Evans blog when I joined a blog hop for Creative Expressions. I've stuck the May Arts crocheted lace to some Grunge Paper. I then used the Tattered Flowers Sizzix die to cut the flowers. For the dark brown lace flower I also painted the Grunge Paper before sticking the lace to it. I forgot to take a photo of the cut flowers before I assembled them !
I cut a bottle cap using the mini bottle cap die and then coated it with gold acrylic paint.
I cut a mini flourish from white card and coated it with acrylic paint too.
I hope you've enjoyed todays Step X Step and you have a great week end !
