Monoprinting



Hello Friends
I wanted to take part in this months Craft Stamper challenge. The challenge is to monoprint with an acrylic block. That sounded like fun. I am always up for trying new things :)  I don't own that many paints so I used what I had on hand. They happen to be black and a metallic light blue. I squeezed the paint randomly on the block then put it on my paper. Oh how it makes such a lovely mess :)  This background is what I was left with after I removed the acrylic block. The black was a little too dramatic for me, so I wanted to soften it a little. While the paint was still wet I sprinkled white fine glitter all over.  It dried in with a frosty look from the glitter which I really liked. I stamped and heat embossed the girl with white embossing powder, then painted her with my distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with distress ink then cut out the words and pasted them along side the girl. Finally I added some paper flowers that were coloured with the same distress inks.
