Wild Rose

Another experiment day following Sheena Douglas's  background instructions. This time a touch of vaseline to act as a resist with the old magnolia emulsion paint. I also used  her Wild Rose set of stamps.
Colouring in with acrylic paint, made me realise I need lots, lots, more practise with my paintbrush, but the whole process felt very relaxing.
When I had painted the butterfly I stamped over it again to emboss the edges, luckily I got it in the right position over the the original image.
Challenge 10  at. Lets Ink It Up is Embossing, There are some super examples of all kinds of embossing  to look at there.
Thankyou for taking time to stop by and take a peep at my efforts.

  1. I tried this technique with vaseline a while ago and mine ended up looking so dreadful it had to be binned. Yours on the other hand is gorgeous Yvonne. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

  5. Your painting is great Yvonne, it's something I keep meaning to try but find it a bit scary! I'm hoping Sheena will be at Alexandra Palace so that I can watch and learn :)
