Happy Monday blog visitors. I made these cards a few weeks ago to send to Wendy Vecchi & Carol Quance to say thank you for my recent wins of Wendy’s stencils & the set of Lin Brown stamps on Carol’s blog.
For Wendy’s card I made a simple background with distress inks, then used her Archival inks – Geranium, Orange Blossom, Fern Green & Potting Soil – through her layered tree stencil & for the stamping of the grass & falling leaves – they’re Martha Stewart stamps. The Tim Holtz bird stamp & the Memory Box die cut birds completed the card.
I used a piece of canvas from an A4 pad as my substrate for Carol’s card. I painted it with Nougat fresco paint, stamped the crackle with Chocolate Pudding (I think, could have been Mocha Mousse) then stamped the leaves with a mix of Tinned Peas & Hey Pesto. Following Lin’s instructions, I stamped the flowers & leaves onto black card, leaving a border when I cut them out & stamping a PaperArtsy script stamp on the flowers. I added dots of white liquid pearls to the centres. I can’t remember exactly what fresco paints I used on the flowers. I think it was Nougat, Ice Blue & a tiny amount of Inky Pool.
That’s it, I’m delighted to say that Carol liked her card & I hope Wendy did too. I’m working on a journal page & a couple of cards right now, so I might be back later……
