Silhouetts Over Color

Hello, it's Roxie here today to show you a colorful card using distress inks for color and the Perfect Airbrush to blow white acrylic paint in full strength and also slightly diluted onto the colors.  The chevron pattern is created with stencil and molding paste.  The black images are stamped on, the white images are die cuts.

I used the 1/16" and 1/4" Perfect Layers rulers to create my mats/borders.

The envelope and insert were masked off, sponged with ink then the black image stamped beyond the color line.

The flower die was cut in both white and black and the white is offset over the black to create a slight shadow effect.

Ink: Ranger Distress Inks - Peacock Blue, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Memento - Tuxedo Black
Paint: Ranger -Adirondack- white acrylic
Image: SweetStamps - ArtsyFarty - Foliage #1
Dies and Punches: Die-namites - flowers, Martha Stewart - butterflies
Plastic stencil: Die Cuts with a View
Paper: Core'dinations - dusty purple, yellow, Remember When - black, Beckett Expressions - Radiance for image panel
Other: Golden Gel Mediums - light molding paste, Aleene's tacky glue for attaching flowers and butterflies, self sticking Forever in Time gems, unknown clear gems (scattered around the flowers), Aleene's Paper Glaze for adhesive, Stickles - Yellow
