Finishing up a page of Susan Louise Arts
I am having so much fun designing with these vintage looking pre-prints from Sarah Louise. There are so many ways they can be used. This sled sits on top of a nicely textured piece of velvet card stock and then show cases itself with a beautiful gold glimmer paper. Simon Says Double stitched dies really add to this creation.
The chickadees on the mail box were just asking for a frame to highlight them. I distressed the frame with Tim Holtz Pumice Stone ink. Taking advantage of the Ranger Specialty Paper they are printed on, I used Tea Dye ink and sponged the outside edges of the cut out piece. I then laid a mask over the image and sprinkled generous amounts of water all around and let it set a bit before pressing a paper towel on it to dry. The water reacts with the ink and makes white spots like big thick snowflakes. I finished it off with some snowflake punches and Viva Pearl pen and a tiny piece of ribbon. I really like how this turned out. Thanks for looking. Enjoy you holidays how ever you spend them.
I will enter this as one entry into the Simon Says Anything goes Challenge for Wednesday.
