For today's hop, I'll keep the info fairly simple. I created a small wall-hanging on a chipboard base, with background layers of Bazzill papers with a "brush finish" of Versamark ink and Stampendous White Embossing Powder. This same ink and EP acts as a resist in stamping the Cling Follow Art sentiment, when layering a variety of Memories Mists inks through the Dreamweaver Open Heart stencil. Spritzed with water, these inks run and mingle. The Stampendous Cling Music Score was stamped over the panel with Rich Cocoa Memento. All the layers were distressed with ink and torn edges. A stamped and embossed layer of Cling Dragonfly Vine dragonflies were spritzed as well, before fussy cutting and attaching to the branch. The inks wipe clean from the embossed areas and provide beautiful contrast.
I used the May Arts Cotton/Stripes to attach the piece to the branch. A swath of their wonderful Net in natural adds to the airy look. The panels have been wrapped with the Twisted Burlap Cord in Olive, with a Suede tie around the feather. All of these May Arts products went with the "nature" theme that I was working with. Just a hint...if you can't make up your mind what colors to choose from all that fabulousness on the May Arts' site, go with the natural colors, and use your own ink pads, stains, and mists to color to match your projects!
