Be Yourself

The challenge theme this week on Make a Moo or Two is Girls.

The mountboard bases were coloured with Distress Inks. The peeled paint ink was applied using a brayer, using random strokes. To soften the effect, I blended the ink with a piece of cut-n-dry foam. The mustard seed ink was applied to my own wiggly line stamp & applied randomly. I sprayed them with a fine mist of water & dried using a heat gun.

The Tim Holtz girl images were stamped onto pale green paper & again onto white paper using black ink. These were cut out & mounted with a strip of vellum underneath.

I used a small flower punch to cut out the flowers. These were shaped using an embossing tool & a small silver peel off (from Magenta Style) was added to the centre of each flower. Peel offs were also added to the hat & crown.

After adding the printed words, the Moos were finished by edging them with black ink.
