I used a stencil and modeling paste to get the patchy brickwork, then covered it in Distress Inks. I used Archival ink to stamp the sentiment and flowers from the kit #Unity "Create Today" (one of my favorites!)
By Lynne K. Color wash the background using diluted Distress inks on watercolor paper. Stamp various flowers and a couple of butterflies. Stamps Lynne used are from Lavinia Stamps, Chocolate Baroque, and Crafty Individuals.
“As much as nature-themed art with a delicate appearance appeals to me, I have found myself increasingly drawn to setting birds, butterflies, and, in this instance, a dragonfly against a more urban, industrial surrounding … The contrast can also heighten the sense of beauty, of catching sight of delicate fluttering wings against the rust and debris of urban life.” — Lynne Moncrieff | Somerset Apprentice
