Art De Fleurage!

Darkroom Door - Monday, June 21, 2010

Is that even a word? Fleurage? I doubt it, but that's what's happening around here! Lot's of yummy Art De Fleurage everywhere! I have just finished swapping out all of the ATC's in the Art de Fleur swap and they have been posted back to all the participants this afternoon. So if you took part in the swap, keep an eye on your mail box :) Beautiful ATC's as usual. You guys really do amazing stuff. My 6 yr old daughter Zoe was helping me sort the swap and she was impressed with the pink lace, ribbons, utee crackle, raffia, bling, distressing and all sorts of other embellishments and techniques! A little artist in the making, I'm sure. 

This month's ATC theme is 'Favourite Quotes'. There's still a week until the deadline, so if you're keen to take part, click here for all the details!

Speaking of Art de Fleur, Godelieve has been busy with the Art De Fleur stamps. Look at this stunning card she's created:


Art de Fleur Vol 2 Rubber Stamps
Floral Background Stamp
Distress Ink : Vintage Photo & Old Paper

After coloring the stamped flowers with pencils, Godelieve stamped the Floral Background with Distress Ink Old Paper.  Then added more color to the background using the same Old Paper ink and Vintage Photo.


I love the colouring of the flower stamp. You can almost feel the texture on the leaves!

Here's another fabulous Art de Fleur project from Godelieve:



Art de Fleur Vol 1 stamps
Art de Fleur Vol 2 stamps
Distress Ink: Vintage Photo, & Crushed Olive
Tonic paper distresser
White pencil - string - button - watercolor background


Notes from Godelieve:

- I used 3 ATCs on this triptych
- Background here is made with Talens Ecoline inks, but Distress Inks on a craft sheet would work too.
- I stamped the flowers with Vintage Photo.
- Distressed with Vintage Photo and Crushed Olive
- Used the tonic paper distresser on the edges.
- I scored a card size piece of cardstock, and used a lid to draw the top, cut and distressed the top edge.
- The quote is cut into pieces, and attached to each part of the triptych.
- String and button are used as finishing touches.



I love the white pencil technique!!

Thanks for sharing Godelieve!
