DecoArt have also brought out spritzers, which are permanent and fantastic for layering, making them perfect for mixed media. For this card I simply used them for a blast of colour, and then used my little character stamp clutching his star balloon.
The floral stamps are fantastic for layering, and the DecoArt Tinting medium is nice to drag the distress ink to colour the flowers. This gives a more opaque finish than when the colour is dragged out with water.
For this one I used the DecoArt crackle paint through a Andy Skinner mask. When the paint was dry, I worked over the background with the paints. The background stamp is fantastic, and for this image I just used one of the flowers and a few of the little circles.
This is the full background stamp. It's so cool. There's so much detail. With this one I used the sentiment which I threaded under the largest flower, and then stamped onto the smaller flower, so it appears that the sentiment is flowing onto the flower
Finally - this guy! Cool isn't he. I used the DecoArt paints to create my background, along with the stamps, and the mask. I used the same paints to colour my little chap in.
I've got the catalogue to plan some more Carabelle shows......this makes me very happy :) xx
