Good morning to you all in the land of blog
A little while ago I played with distress inks with my good friend Polly and some other very talented crafters. Polly said I should get dirty more and diverse from my cards more, so whilst I had some play time, here is what I did.
Apologise for the photo heavy post and will explain how I did this nearer the end of the post.
I started off with a egg shaped metal box from last Easter, recycling it. I gave it a good couple of coats with gesso, and then scuffed this up with a sanding block. I then got to work with my copic air brush system. Selecting some blue violets, pinks and purples from my sketch markers, I topped them up to ensure they were all juicy and ready to go. I then attacked the egg with my little latex gloves on, with my air brush system, creating a similar effect to that, that you would get if you used distress inks. I then found some old pretty lace and held this over the egg and air brushed in a deep BV copic. To create the lacy look. Then to finish off. Decorations apart from one flower were all from the Hobby House. So that is the flowers, little bows, lace that has also been airbrushed, liquid pearls and those gorgeous pearl flourishes.
I love how this turned out, have some more altered art pieces to get on with so off to play :)
