Hello and Welcome! Ina here
Today is the day I get to post my very first project
as an Ambassador for the
Here is the Inspirational Mood Board for their
As soon as I saw this I wanted to do something with
the image of that LONG RED HAIR!
When I walked into the Art and Soul Studio at Hervey Bay
I went looking for a suitable stamp and found this
and so my journey into Mixed Media really begins.
I heat embossed my image in black
on watercolour paper
and smooched the background with
Tim's Festive Berries Distress Ink mixed with
Forever Red Perfect Pearls to add shimmer.
a bit more colour before cutting with a
Postage Stamp Die.
Now on to the background using
Black Textured Card Stock.
Next step to add a bit of dimension with
Dina Wakley Tornado Stencil using
white texture paste.
and lots more colours with Mica Flakes
Finnabair Glass Beads, Art Alchemy Gold Rush Paint,
Fantasy Snow and melted red gelatos.
Then die cut flourishes in gold and black
and my flowers were inked with
Art Alchemy Metallic Paint in Red Wine and Rusty Red
scored to add shape.
Added some yellow glitter to the centre
and a few gold material flowers to the back.
You can see a tiny bit of the original colour
peeking out from the centre of the flower.
I needed to take the stark white away from the
stamped image so inked all around with
a shimmery black wax.
Thought the cut out sentiments were perfect
for this amazing image.
Did you notice I even found an earring
to add from my stash?
Just a few more finishing touches with sequins
then attaching to a corrugated cardboard back
and punched holes to add my gold coil ready for hanging.
