Happy Saturday! And it’s a bank holiday weekend for some of us – yay!
Today my Twitter friend Hazel, aka @craftroomgran, celebrates her birthday so I thought I’d show you the card I made for her.
I began the background by gluing a piece of patterned paper to heavy card stock with matte gel medium. I coated the front too to protect the paper from all the paint etc..
Then I applied Grunge Paste through the PaperArtsy ELB006 stencil & when it was dry wiped Vintage Lace Fresco over the top with a baby wipe, followed by French Roast. LOTS of Florentine & White Fire Treasure Gold (my favourite combination at the moment) went on top.
I painted a kraft tag with Concrete & Vintage Lace Frescos. Applied Irish Cream through the ELB001 stencil & stamped the flower from on top with Coffee Archival. I used a palette to apply GP around the edges, painted it with French Roast & Little Black Dress when it was dry then added Spanish Topaz TG. I did the same to the arch over the Lynne Perella image, which was stamped with Plum Archival, covered with Versamark & heat set with clear embossing powder.
To finish, I added some hessian & fabric flowers.
Happy birthday Hazel, I hope you have a lovely day.
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend, see you next time.
