...did you know that a "kaliedoscope" is actually the collective noun for a group of butterflies? I am a mine of useful information you know ;O)) Anyways. I am back today with another project I have made using the Screen Sensation. Actually, this is the very first thing I made and I am rather fond of it... I love the verdigris effect I achieved by simply mixing a few inks on the screen as the squeegee pulled them over.
This is a shadowbox that I had kicking around and decided to use my prints in it. I printed the Bespattered screen onto cardstock using a mixture of Harbour Blue and White ink combined with a smidge of Copper ink. Once dried, I then popped the Antique Script screen into the Screen Sensation and printed the script in black ink. It makes for a pretty cool background, doesn't it?
I then printed the Kaliedoscope screen using the same verdigris colours... dotting the different colours along the top of the screen before printing means a more random print so the butterflies all look sooo pretty.
The butterflies were cut out, edged with black ink to make them pop. I stamped a word and then assembled the whole thing together... oh and the shadowbox? Coloured with the Black ink I used for the script print... it is such a lovely smooth ink and permanent once dried, it seemed fitting to use the inks for everything I did.
Please do excuse the naff photography... my break away from blogging did not, in any way, improve my photographic prowess!
That's all from me for today... have a grand day and thanks for looking! TTFN
