Abstract Cards Inspired by Ellen Vargo

Published January 22, 2014 by isisimaginings

I’ve just finished these cards, so I thought I’d get them posted here before I go to bed. They’re based on Ellen’s second project on the PaperArtsy blog this week. I have to say that I am LOVING using my brayer to make backgrounds. Here’s what I started with.


And here are the finished cards. It took a while for me to decide on using this Lynne Perella image, but I think it works. The quotes are Hero Arts stamps I think.


The star is a Tim Holtz stamp & I used Little Black Dress fresco paint with the lid of my spritzer bottle to make the circles.


I had a few scraps left so I made this card too, the star was stamped with Limelight fresco.


That’s it. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone for your kindness & encouragement this week, it means more than you know. See you next time.

  • These are great Kirsten! What fab results from Ellen’s technique but guess what? My favourite is the one from the scraps, lol, but only because that’s more to my taste! I think it’s brilliant.

  • Stunning cards Kirsten – you have been busy! They are all lovely but I love the one with the hold on to your dreams sentiment – just think the composition of that one looks great. Claire x
