In amongst my bag was two pillars a statue and the words Column and Arch, these are from the "Architecture" plate. A spring challenge, mmm now what could I do that was slightly different. Well if you put an "M" before Arch you have March so with that in mind and a roman feel i had an idea.
Having just received the first two new distress colours i was itching to try them out. So I sprayed the new coral and cracked pistachio distress stain sprays onto a journal page. I thought it gave the page a sort Verdi Gris effect although that could just be my imagination!! Along with a new stencil again from The Artistic Stamper. Let that dry and then out came some tissue tape (not quite sure why but I like it) and the grunge paste with an ivy stencil! Quickly followed by some card, black archival ink and the aforementioned stamps. I also used the Tim Holtz school house stencil and a craftersworkshop roman lettering one. I used my white pen to add accents to the pillars and around the ampersand from the stencil and also around the ivy and the title. I used a black micro pen to draw in the ivy around the lettering.
So here it is entitled "Beware the Ides of March". My entry for the Spring is coming challenge!
