Ink and The Dog and Infusions

Very exciting to be selected to take part in the 3UP week at Paperartsy. We were using Ink and The Dog stamps and Infusions.

Here is my project using some reclaimed wood and meal findings..



After experimenting with the Infusions, I decided on a colour scheme of Lemoncello and Royal Blood.

I created the background on tissue paper. On a glass mat I sprayed water over the tissue paper and sprinkled over Royal Blood.



I stamped using Clocks Plate 2, again on top of tissue paper. The 3 blocks were painted with Matt Gel Medium, sprinkled over some Lemoncello and spread with a painting knife. The stamped tissue paper was placed on top.




On each side of the blocks I used one of the stamps from Backgrounds Plate 2 using the same technique.




I completed by adding the metal hanger and part of an old hinge on the bottom.




Another couple of views, I love the way the tissue paper crinkled. Also I was pleased with the walnut crystals as they played a part in the overall effect as I have used wood for the project.

Don't forget to check out Siobhan and Rebecca, my fellow teamies!!!
