I began by selecting my colours - well actually they were on my desk from a recent project! I do not naturally reach for purples, but the recent project was something for a friend's special birthday... and it is her favourite colour.
I created some prints using my gel plate and selected colours - PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylics - Purple Rain, Periwinkle and Bora Bora. I also incorporated PaperArtsy stencil - PS336 , by Nicci Battilana, with both paint and simple drawing of the circles with a black or white pen.
Next I decided to explore using the large flower image on PaperArtsy stencil PS340 (Tracy Scott). I sponged through the image onto black card with my three colours. I then used a white pen to outline the painted flower before fussy cutting.
On this card I took half of the image and reached again for Nicci's stencil (PS336) and added some white lined circles. I then stamped one of the rectangles from PaperArtsy Stamp Set ETS073 by Tracy Scott on one of my backgrounds.
I made it quite easy for myself to incorporate the Scrapcosy stamp set - PaperArtsy ESC29. The greetings can be used for lots of occasions and you may have also spotted earlier how I used some of the labels on white paper as one of collaged elements.
