Playing with scraps

I had these scraps on my desk that I think I used the Spectrum Aquatints to create some time ago. I decided to fiddle with one and make it into a card.

I added some watered down gesso and roughly added the shape of the stamp I wanted to use and oh yes i had also wiped some black paint through a stencil.


The black paint smudged a little so I ended up with some black patches as well as the dots. 

I took the JOFY stamp and stamped it in archival.  I then used some pink paints to add colour to the bloom and green for the stem.  I also gave the white gesso a wash of green to knock it back a little.

Next I added the black circles from the stamp set randomly round the panel.  Finally I flicked pink paint spots and added some white highlights. 

I stuck the panel to a dl card and then doodled round the panel and stamped the sentiment at the bottom.

I am really happy I found a use for this random scrap of inky goodness!

Happy crafting!
