I started with a piece of greyboard covered in white paper from PaperArtsy. I then used the TCW Paradise stencil with Grunge Paste. Once it was dry I then applied the Luminarte paints and while still wet I spritzed them with water. Loved the results, the paints blended beautifully ! I mixed Carmen with Olive Vine to create a gorgeous deep brown and used it around the edge. I then sanded the top of the Grunge Paste to make the centre a little lighter.
I did some stencilling using the TCW Onion Skin stencil and the Prima Checked stencil using the Luminarte paint. I then added a little stamping using one of the new Ellen Vargo stamps from the 06 set. The text is from the Lin Brown 05 set, and I've stamped it onto Smoothy card that I've painted with Carmen and Ginger Peach. I cut the text into separate words and then mounted them onto pieces of mount board.
I painted the metal flower with Carmen and Boysenberry and the metal pieces below have been brushed with Ginger Peach.
I painted a small mulberry paper rose with Carmen and mounted it onto the metal embellishment. To finish I rubbed some Renaissance Treasure Gold around the edges.
Hope you like my first dabble with Luminarte's I will definitely be using them again.....soon !
