I started by mixing fresco paints with water in little spray bottles using Rose, Mermaid, Bougainvillea and Eggplant. I just used a circles stencil to keep things fairly simple.
Onto this background I stamped one of Lin Browns new leaf stamps in black archival and covered over the background with fresco chalk.
Next I stamped the flower stamp twice, masking and overlapping and created 2 flowers. I used the paint left from the sprays to colour the petals and used a variety of greens for the leaves.
I overstamped the stamens and clear embossed them to make them stand out. I further highlighted the tips with Black Perfect Pearls and used some pink and green Perfect Pearls on the centres and on the leaves.
It was looking a bit too twee for me so I grunged it up with an ART stencil which I sprayed through with Dyan's Black ink and added extra ink to make the letters run.
I thought that the black grungy letters gave a good contrast to the pretty flowers.
Thanks for looking!
