A few more pieces...

Here are a few more creations using the new Paperbag Studios 'Flourish' plate that was released this week (see post before this).

This first piece was created using a smooth white domino. A gorgeous surface to work onto. Perfect for fine detail stamping.



This second piece was my first attempt at what I call a cheating grid effect (cheating in the sense that I made the three central panels THEN chopped it up (not mask areas as one would expect). The branches are a combination of paint being blown with a straw and rubons.



This is a Stampbord ATC hanging panel. Again, as with the domino, I LOVE super smooth chalky silk surfaces to work onto



Here the stamp image has been totally chopped and changed to create a 3D style slidemailer. The text on the left is random stamping from the text area of the stamp and the butterfly makes a double appearance. I think I got away with the rub on word Honor being spelt in the American way as the stamp company is from the States.:0)
