Architecture




Created for the sample pieces on TGIF. This week's theme is Architecture.
The first piece was created with Distress inks in the background in Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint. The Architecture was then stamped in black, and a collage image added. Finally the words were stamped and sponged with the same inks.
The second piece uses Distress inks in Faded Jeans & Vintage Photo. These were spritzed with a little water to created the speckled effect, then the main image was stamped in Versafine Black. This was masked and the background stamped with a text in faded jeans. Finally, the word "inspire" was stamped and speckles and ink splodges added.
