I started by covering some white card with Portfolio pastels, blending the colours together with my finger.
I then used Wendy Vecchi's Polka Dotty stencil and rubbed over it with a baby wipe. As the Portfolio pastels react with water the baby wipe bleaches the colour.
I then used the Wendy Vecchi Layered Flower stencil with Tango Fresco Finish paint. Then did some stamping using Orange Blossom Archival ink.
I then stamped over the background using Snowflake Fresco Finish paint.
I then cut a piece of cardboard and ripped the top layer off in a few places. Then I spread some Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste over it and when it was dry I rubbed Archival ink, Dandelion, Orange Blossom and Carnation Red over the top.
I had a piece of the background card left over so I stamped the image from the Wendy Vecchi Approved Art set. The image slightly smudged but I quite liked it. The sentiment is from the True Art set.
I die cut several flowers from Crinoline using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers then I painted them with watered down Fresco Finish paint. I added a vintage button the centre.
I hope you've got chance to join us for this challenge.
