Hello and welcome to my second project this month which utilises a few scrap pieces!

It all started when I squeezed out rather too much Nougat Fresco Paint and was looking around for something to paint to use it up when I spied a couple of experimental pieces lying in the scraps box. I would imagine I have used a combination of Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink for these inky layers with a stencil but way too bright for me! 

But look at the lovely hues when they are covered with Nougat Fresco Paint - fabulous and much more me!

I added a couple of strips of tissue tape and some very light stamping with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.

Then a little contrast stamping with Black Archival ink. 

I decided not to introduce any further colours so hunted through the scraps box again and found this stamped butterfly .....

.... and a die cut from one of Tim's handwritten words (always so handy for this kind of card!). Everything then got a bit of a splattering with some watered down gesso.

I then stuck everything on to a 6" x 3" card blank cut from some cream cardstock and edged with gold pen. 

I shall certainly be looking through my scraps box for more brightly coloured experimental pieces as the coating of paint really makes for a lovely muted background.

Thank you for joining me today and have a great week!
