Splodge & blend goes vintage by Jayne Davies

Contemporary Vintage collage by Jayne Davies

Hi all. Here’s my take on ‘splodge and blend – create a new trend! ‘

Splodgeaway  mat / easy ink card
Distress inks: tumbled glass, faded jeans, chipped sapphire and stormy sky
8”x8” card blank
Silver mirricard
Indigo Blu stamp set ‘sewing mends the soul
Calligraphy stamp
Blue ribbon
Silver pearl liquid pearls
Sakura blue tiara pen (or other sparkly pen of your choice)
Post-it sticky notes

Cut your easy ink card to 18cmx18cm and the silver mirricard to 18.5cmx18.5cm. Using your splodgeaway mat and a mixture of stormy sky ink and tumbled glass ink ink around the edges of your card blank and the outside edges of your easy ink card. Choose your central image and stamp in position using chipped sapphire ink. (using distress inks to stamp make sure it matches the rest of the project colour-wise and also adds to the distressed vintage look).
 Stick post-it notes around the edges of this image, leaving a narrow border and blend the two colours of ink as used around the edges. Continue to mask off each section, roughly to the size of your chosen images and blend as before. While the post-its are still in place each time stamp images with faded jeans distress ink and over stamp with the calligraphy stamp and tumbled glass ink. Lightly blend over any sharp ‘edges’ to soften them.

Add a ribbon to the collage and secure at the back before attaching the collage to the silver mirricard and then to the card blank. To finish off colour the central image frame with sparkly ink and add liquid pearls to the corset image.
