Deco art fluid acrylics, Distress oxide ink, Indigo Blu, Masks/Stencils, Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz

Flourish postcard swap

Another day, another swap! 

Today is a postcard swap where the theme is to “flourish”. I started off with quite a thick chipboard that I cut to 6×4 and covered with gesso.  

Once that was dry I added modelling paste through a Tim Holtz stencil. 

Next I started to add colour. First magenta and purple using the decoarts fluid acrylics and then some distress oxide on top. 

Next I added the wild flower image with white embossing powder and added a rough frame doing the same on the edges.  There were some wet parts  (impatient me) which also had some powder catch which left some other white parts. I liked this though. It gave it a rather loose feel.

I then added the sequin waste layer and some embossed Tim Holtz butterflies and then the Indigo Blu sentiment which I stamped and coloured using the distress oxides.

Really happy with how this finishes up. Hope the recipient also likes it too. 

Happy crafting!
