You just can beat Mother Nature when it comes to beauty. That’s why I’ve encouraged so many to give this Duoprinting technique a try…
Today’s post is an interesting negative effect I was able to get with this plant in one of my hanging baskets…
How sweet is that little plant?
This close up shows how moisture from the plant effected the water color paper when pressed through the Big Shot.
A side view…
and a peek inside.
So go out and seek interesting plants and give this a try. Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
- Paper: Thick Whisper White and Fresh Fig Cardstock, plus water color paper
- Ink: Fresh Fig…Mother Nature supplies the rest!
- Stamps: Beautiful Bouquet (sentiment)
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: Linen Thread and a Big Shot
- The Thick Whisper White base card is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
- The Fresh Fig layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to base card with multipurpose glue
- The water color layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″ (cut two). Stamp sentiment in upper right corner with Fresh Fig. Fold a piece of copy paper in half and sandwich your plant between two pieces of water color paper and place inside the copy paper. Run through Big Shot. You will have a positive and negative print for two card fronts.
- Crisscross Linen Thread at the bottom of this layer and attach with SNAIL. Make bow and attach with glue dots. YouTube video on bow here. Add this layer to card front with multipurpose glue.
- Inside there is a layer of Fresh Fig 5-1/4″ x 4″ with a layer of Thick Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″. Stamped with sentiment and attached with SNAIL.
There is a stack of these nature duoprints in my studio that should last me for a while. Give it a try…you’ll be addicted like me!
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
You’ll already be wet…might as well get inky and be HaPpY!
