Guest Designer: Shirley Bampton

Hello!
We are welcoming some fabulous artists to the ASOI blog this year, sharing some gorgeous projects for you to drool over! 
First up is the talented...

Shirley Bampton

"I’m thrilled to be guest designing again here at A Sprinkle of Imagination.  For my project I spritzed some Dylusions Funky Fuchsia and Calypso Teal onto mixed media paper, sloshed and spritzed it, then stamped the three images from Prima Stitch Stamp - Rectangles and cut them out.  On the largest one I stencilled Distress Inks through the Tim Holtz doily stencil, and on the other two I stamped text and images from Finnabair ‘Don’t Forget To Fly’, adding deeper colour and shading with Distress Markers.
 
 

I stamped the two larger stitched rectangles on my card and aligned my cutout pieces and added the large butterfly which I stitched down the centre with black thread, leaving the ends trailing like antennae and legs.  There’s a full step-by-step on my blog.  I’m back next week with another project - see you then!"
 
 
 
 Thank you Shirley......Love it! Can't wait to see what you come up with next week!
