Vintage Flower (PaperArtsy ESC sample)

Over at the PaperArtsy blog, the latest challenge is Paints with Infusions.  During some housekeeping of photo files, I came across some more of the samples I made, for the recent launch of ScrapCosy stamps.  On receiving the stamps and stencils, Jennie, Raquel and myself, worked with Infusions along with a select few Fresco neutrals.  I am not entering the cards into the challenge, this is just a “filler” post.
I have a very random way of working which isn’t ideal when you then try to work out, the steps. I am sure that I applied Chalk (or it could be Nougat) to book page before applying Infusions.
The new Infusions are available from That’s Crafty, as are all the previous colours.
I doubt I will ever tire of working with Infusions, I love the randomness of the results with the little speckles of unexpected colour.
I simply stenciled directly with Grungepaste, no tinting. You can see the torn edges of the various pieces I layered together on the cardbase.
A second sample –  this stamp is a gorgeously generous size but I decided to tear the stamped image, layering it with more torn, painted and stained book pages before adding stenciling
I tend to favour a monochromatic style but imagine this stamp painted or coloured, it would be stunning. .
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit this post. I am trying to do my best to draft catch-up posts but I don’t ever seem to be catching-up!

    I adored your samples over at PA on launch night – stunning work. I’ve yielded to these stamp sets, but they’re yet to arrive. Beautiful, beautiful work – so subtle with the Infusions too.
