I would recommend wearing a mask if you want to try out this technique, it can be a hazard to your health when the fumes are wafting around the place........ as I found out!
What you are viewing above is a print of a butterfly that was cut from a serviette and matt medium applied to meld it into the Bg, the Die cut has also been treated the same way, (before being cut).
You can use coloured card-stock for this technique as long as it does not have a White core, initially I tried the card-stock but I did not like the effect I was getting,
I made up my own Bg, with Distress Inks, using the wrinkle free method; swipe the inks side by side on to your mat and spritz with water, then colour up your chosen paper/card.
I added a touch (I did not use all this) of mowed Lawn once I dried off the Pinks.
I used the method of soaking a paper towel in Bleach to use as my stamp pad, and stamped my images onto my Bg- I realised after these numerous attempts that the stamp has to be very wet to create a good effect.
Once this was dry I over stamped in Vintage sepia, and stitched a border.
I was aiming for a Vintage feel, so included different laces and a button.
