Sharing a W.I.P. this afternoon, been playing around with Dylusions paints, Visible Image stamps and the Visible Image Monoliths.
I’ve had the monoliths for awhile and had put them safely away, this is always a dangerous approach for me, crafting and tidy doesn’t mix for me!!!
Anyway, this is the start of the monolith, I was hoping to have had more done but not had much time to craft last few days.
I’ve not completed the bottom of the monolith yet because I’ve not decided how I’m decorating the other side yet!!
Step by Step
Painted a monolith with black gesso and glued the two pieces together.
Cut a piece of watercolour card stock to fit the monolith.
Applied Dylusions paints, colours used After Midnight, Calypso Teal and Cut Grass, with a blending tool to the watercolour card stock.
Used a Tim Holtz stencil with the Dylusions paints, same colours as above, to add some interest to the background.
Used Indigo Blu Crackleglaze background stamp with grey Archival ink, stamped over the whole background. Used first and second generation stamping to vary the effect on the background.
Used HobbyArt texture stamp to add the flecked/mottled effect around the edge of the background using black Archival ink.
Used an antistatic bag over the background, to eliminate embossing powder where I don’t want it.
Stamped the elements from Visible Images ‘Learn To Fly’ stamp set, using Smokey Gray Versafine ink and heat embossed with detailed clear embossing powder.
Used Black Soot Distress ink around the edge of the background, wiped away Distress ink from the embossed areas. The embossed areas act as a resist with the Distress ink so the ink never dries so if you don’t wipe away excess you’ll end up with mucky fingers when touching??
Adhered to the monolith using red super sticky tape and PVA glue.
Thanks for stopping 🙂
