Take Your Broken Wings

Hello there! Helen here with my latest card!

Hope you had a good weekend.

I have been busy creating some backgrounds ready for some of our NEW stamps! Had lots of fun with brushos, Lindy’s sprays and Dylusions paints!

I decided to use some existing stamps on one of them though, as it was calling out to me for our awesome moth stamp…
I used turquoise, yellow and red brushos for this one, and once dry I added some more water
and a touch more paint along the top, allowing it to run down my card


I stamped and embossed the large moth, and then stamped two
of the small silhouette moths in black versafine


I also stamped and embossed my chosen quote to make sure it stood out against the background


I added a glow around parts of the moth using diluted white paint, to make it stand out more
and splattered some of the paint over my card


Using some of the excess card from my background, I stamped and
embossed another large moth

I coloured in the skull using a white pen then layered it on top of my original moth
using some foam pads for some extra dimension


Lastly I flicked some black Lindy’s spray here and there, then matted onto black card
before adhering to my white card blank
