Beautiful Tweedle

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by!

We have some fantastic inspiration for you today from Teresa Morgan…



Happy 2017!!! Did you miss me – I certainly missed you all, and am happy to back in my Thrilling Thursday slot for Visible Image stamps. This is the start of my third year with the team and I am certain that it will be as inspiring and full of originality as the previous two!

On to my project – mixing up a couple of sets with a cool background technique:

My background was created with alcohol inks applied to Yupo ‘paper’. Yupo is a synthetic substrate made from polypropolene and has a plastic, shiny surface. It is ideal for alcohol inks and although quite expensive, definitely worth trying out if you like creating different effects.

Tweedle is coloured with Promarkers and Brushmarkers, with some blingy flower gems added to his trousers!!I carefully cut him out, backed him onto black card and cut around, leaving a black border so that he stood out from the colourful background.

I covered the background with yellow alcohol ink before dripping different colours on top to create spots of colour. I then took a felt pad and added some drops of Blending Solution to it before randomly dabbing over the background to create the marbled finish.
