Put a few colours of paint on the page and swiped white gesso over it in a thin layer.
Stamped the wall with black gesso & the cats with archival black ink.
Then added accents with various bottle lids using paint and white&black gesso.
Swiped white gesso through a stencil.
Butterflies are done with paint through stencil.
'Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose'.
I started with a variety of yellow, orange, red, green, brown distress inks on the craftsheet, spritzed water and dragged the paper through it.
Dried with heattool, then wet my hand and flicked some water on.
Stamped the leaves with peeled paint and rusty hinge, cut out, sponged with scattered straw and coloured the edges.
Stamped the trees with gathered twigs distress ink.
Used a mini stapler for the ruler ribbon and glued the leaves on top of it.
Cut out some words ('distressables') and glued them at the bottom.

On Stampotique Designers Challenge Arwen is the hostess this week and she wants to see how our underwater world looks like. SDC 162 is Under The Sea
I made a background with blue bistre.
After stamping I covered a -slightly oversized -grungeboard crown with perfect pearls and put some dots with glossy accents on it.
From the moment I was working on the crown I had this song on my mind :
"I am a queen for tonight, but will I have a king tomorrow?" (Helen Shapiro).
On a Vintage Journey challenge 13 is to use Tim's products an/or inspiration to create atc's.
I started to create a background with Distress Paint Broken China and Distress Stain Antiqued Bronze.
Spritzed water and dried with heattool.
Then cut the paper in 3 pieces a tiny bit smaller than atc's because I wanted to mount them on Kraft cardstock.
Put some tissue paper on, distressed the edges and darkened them.
Sponged ink over honeycomb stencil. When dry, put some Vintage Photo ink and Distress Embossingpowder on various places and heatembossed.
Assembled bits and pieces (salvage stickers, distressables, chit-chat, filmstrip, tiny paperclips etc ) and made a collage.
