It's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and I am delighted to introduce today's new release. The digi set is called Sun Fleur and she is gorgeous. She comes with two individual sunflowers, the most beautiful sunflower sun and an inspirational quote.
Here is my card:
I coloured the images with Copics, added some white Posca pen highlights, and fussy cut them. They are glued directly onto the background with some torn, spotty washi tape to ground the images.
The background is the result of a happy accident and I feel like I've invented a new technique, but probably haven't! I dabbed 3 colours of acrylic paints using a baby wipe - at the base is Newton & Winsor Gold Green, the centre is a mix of Dylusions Lemon Zest and Vanilla Custard and the top is the Dylusions yellow mix with a little Squeezed Orange; some blank areas of paper were left unpainted. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, then decided to lightly ink over the painted areas - I didn't like this, so took a damp baby wipe to remove it ... and it left the most amazing result ... the ink filled in the white spaces and left behind almost a marbled effect. I am pretty pleased with the look!! I stamped some flourishes using an Inkylicious stamp and Vintage Photo and added some black and white paint splatters. The sentiment was cut into strips and outlined with black fine liner. Finally the edges were inked in black.
That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
