Mixed Media on Patterned Paper

1. Spread Gel Medium all over the patterned paper and lay the negatives on top. The trim to fit the page.
2. Ink with Walnut distress Ink all over. The Gel Medium forms a resist and the patterned paper under the negative butterfly does not accept the ink.
3. Close up of the inked sheet. I like how the joins appear darker. Adds interest.

Great idea - how did you create the butterfly negative?
