I did quite a few different techniques on this page. First was to create the back purple color behind the doilies and in front of the black background. I could not find the color I wanted, white was to harsh and I already had a black background. I took the black soot and concord distress inks and blended the color onto white cardstock. I then sprayed it with water to blend it further. One of the many uses of distress inks!!
I also used the wonder brass stencils from Momenta to create the wonderful black swirls you see all over the page. I used the stencil and black acrylic paint (think paint) and applied it over the stencil on top of the paper, carfully pulled the stencil up, and viola - wonderful swirls!!
