Anyway back to the nitty gritty girls and boys - you have two weeks to play along and there is a prize! The challenge is to use Die Cuts/Punches in your art, either or both! Lots of scope.
I decided to decorate a plain box, which my penpal Sall kindly gave me for Christmas. I gessoed the box, lightly painted over with acrylic paint, sprayed lots of tissue with a mixture of gold, olive and raspberry Sticky Fingers Inks, stamped over with text and then added to the box whilst still wet to get the crumpled look.
The detailed butterfly is a Marianne Creatable die cutting folder and and the swirl is a Magenta chipboard die cut, which I painted with gold acrylic dabber.
