Large Mum

Hi, it's Kaz here again and I've been using the larger sized chipboard Mum. This one is about 18 cms long, so it really is the focus on any project. I had the perfect sized tin for it too.

The tin has been decorated with alcohol inks.

I gave the chipboard a coat of gesso first then, once dry, I used distress inks to colour it. Distress inks tend to 'sink' a little bit into the gesso which gave it a lovely softer shade base. I also gave the sides a coat of white acrylic paint.

I then went to town with a variety of stamps and versamagic inkpads to produce a collage effect.
Finally I used a cotton bud to add ink to the edges of the chipboard and added a few flowers for decoration.

Kaz xx
