Inchie Arts 3 x 3 Art Square

I’ve been playing with my Inchie Arts Art Squares and today I’ve combined a 3 x 3 inch white Art Square with Pan Pastels and Distress Paints for an artsy mixed media look.
Here’s how I created this Art Square:
1.STAMP: Stamp butterfly (Penny Black) using VersaMark Ink.  Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat to set.
2.COLOR:  Color both the butterfly and the background using Pan Pastels.  I used a variety of the Pan Pastel tools from the large sponges to the very small detail sponges to color the butterfly.
3.STENCIL: Lay a stencil (Our Crafters Workshop) directly over the Art Square.  Press a VersaMark Ink pad directly on top of the stencil applying it to the background area only, not the butterfly.  Apply another layer of Pan Pastel to the background using the same colors as before.  The stenciled areas will be darker.
4.STAMP:  Add textural script stamping (Penny Black) using black ink.
5.PAINT: Using Distress Paints, dab paint randomly onto the Art Square and on the edges.
