Making Mixed Media with Ann Butler's Faux quilting stamps and inks

Hello my dear crafty friends !
Irit  is here and this is my monthly project made with Ann Butler's gorgeous products.
This is a chipboard board that became a kind of an art Mixed Media project and I actually tried to show how we can use Ann Buter's inks and stamps over the different surfaces.
So  it's not a real tutorial (almost impossible to make a Mixed Media project full tutorial , but with video); so I just show you the final result and give some tips.
The white artistic chipboard was covered with tissue paper first. Some tissue was with a pattern and some was just white one. I stamped all over the white tissue with permanent black ink and you can see all Ann's stamps patterns over the board, mostly around the central space.  Then I added some stencil's writing about art with texture paste and then all the stamped and masked surface was  inked with a mix of Ann Butler's Crafters Clearsnap inks.
I added two masked circles with  texture paste and white embossing powder and then inked over the  embossed mask with some of Ann's inks again.
So far we used Ann's inks over glued tissue, over texture paste and over embossing powder and we can see how great it works over all of those surfaces.

Now for the next surfaces. I inked the wooden panel and as you can see the words are still visible.
The chipboard bird cage was inked over the bare chipboard ans I like this " like vintage" result. The chipboard Honeycomb was inked with another Ann's ink and so were the feather's edges. Two burlap flowers were inked too and look at this perfect colored result!

Then I stamped  over diamond chipboard pieces  and inked over stamped images: great look again.

The only non Ann's ink here are those stains over the old brush I added to this art piece.
