inspiration and SCD Arches

After searching the net for some inspiration i came across Dina Wakley's blog and her work is just fab. She uses paints, pastels,mists and lots of other mediums, to create her unique art work. So this week with SCD theme being stars i decided to use some acrylic paint, masks, mists and my wendy vecchi stamps.

I started by painting my base with butterscotch paint and a small amount of pool paint. Once dry i placed my large star mask and used my white acrylic paint to make it pop from the background. Then i used my small star mask, but when i spayed glimmer mist on it but it bleed through so i wiped it off, but it left a mark so i used this to my advantage and used my black and white pen to draw around them. I stamped one of my wendy stamps on paper used my T/H distress inks to colour it and adhered to large star. But i still felt it was lacking something so i used some red acrylic paint to it as well and some crafty notions white mist. I then stamped some small dots on the edges with distress ink and my sentiment in black. Finally after some very mucky hands swiped my edges in black distress ink

  3. Great arch and I know what you mean about mucky hands. An almost permanent fixture, so much so that I have bought some gloves which occasionally I remember to put on. Lol
