Fabulous Collage

This is my second attempt at this collage. I would show you the first but you would LOL. Lot of stamping on this one but this was actually kinda fun. Next time I will use the Marvy inks because they dry quicker. I started out with glossy paper and inked the whole thing with tulip yellow. Then I stamped the veins background stamp with scattered straw (which if you look closely around her face and arm area you may be able to see). I then stamped the butterfly in broken china changing directions and leaving the center area open. Next I stamped the large flower in aged mahogany and the the smaller flower in peeled paint. I filled in the blank spots with a vine stamp in fern green. I stamped (my favorite) girl in the center in black stazon and lastly the sentiment. I outlined the whole thing with my gold leaf pen. The burgundy plaid paper was run through the cuttlebug and then inked the raised dots with my gold cat eye. Lastly I added the flowers for foof. Card size is 5/7 and background strips are 2 x 4 3/4 and the glossy paper is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Ta Da! You can find more about this technique here. Thanks for stopping by! Have a FABULOUS day!
