Nighttime... Playtime... Take II

...cor blimey!  Another great night of getting thoroughly covered in ink and paint, I am a happy bunny!  Just like the other night, last night I had a little playtime in the Room of Stash... and being as I am a slatternly persuasion, my desk still had all the stuff from the previous nights foray into the World of Nighttime Crafting.  So, why bother tidying up when it is all there, ready to play with?  Time saving too!  Here's what I made:



More brayering going on using Fresco Finish paints, this time I used Vintage Lace, London Night, Very Berry, Chocolate Pudding, Blood Orange, Claret and a smidge of Squid Ink.  I love the way the paints go on using the brayer, a lovely built up effect with them gives a very interesting background... plus, I have found, if I goof up the layer, I can dry it and then brayer right over the top! Cool!  Here's the background before decorating - more Grungepaste through a stencil - and because I wanted to get Treasure Gold only on the raised bits, I popped the stencil back over the dry Grungepaste and applied the TG through it, easy peasy!



The decorations this time are in the form of lots of Studio 490 stamped images.  The flowers and leaves were stamped onto cream card and then I used Seedless Preserves (perfect colour match!) and Antique Linen DI's for the flowers - overstamping with Jet Black Archival.  The leaves were coloured with Forest Moss DI and then overstamped with Fern Green Archival and shaped to give a bit more dimension. 




The sentiment is another 490 one - stamped onto cream card, edged with DI's and then popped into that cute ickle frame, how sweet is that!!!  A stamped a butterfly onto Clearly For Art and popped that onto the design too, along with lots of embellies and a UTEE birdy.  Smidges of Treasure Gold White Fire and Rose Quartz for finishing touches and there ya go... another after dark creation :O)



I must away now - I have my Sunday Stamper post to schedule now as I am away to South Wales to Dandie Crafts today and won't be back until late tomorrow night so I am being organized!!!  *for a change!*   Thanks for looking and have a great day!  TTFN

This is stunning Hels and I love the colour combo (even though it's a teensy bit pink, lol). The flower and leaf cluster is arranged with your usual aplomb (unmatchable imo) and the butterfly and birdy are so sweet.
