Take It Make It Challenge March 2014 Mono Printing

Very excited this morning to be sharing my first piece as one of the very lucky DT members for the Craft Stamper's Take It Make It challenge.
The month's theme is "Mono Printing" using acrylic paints on an acrylic block to create a pattern.
I made a yummy mixture of Martha Stewart and PaperArtsy paints in Mermaid, Snowflake and the aptly named Easter Egg (pink Martha Stewart), smooshed them around with my fingers and made prints on to several sheets of card, including Kraftcard as I wanted to see how they looked against something other than white. I then had a play with stamping in to the paint for a different texture and ended up with some gorgeous pieces of card for use later on.
The IndigoBlu butterflies were stamped out using Archival ink, cut out and added to my chosen section of card, which is matted on to some corrugated cardstock, kraftcard and a black basecard, with some garden twine to tie the colours together.
I am so very proud to have been chosen as a DT member for the best craft magazine on the market, and to be in the company of some amazingly talented teamies, check out their blogs, and join in the challenge via the link on my sidebar.
