Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
Hello my lovely friends and
visitors, I hope your weekend is going well.
I have another card I created for several challenges to share with you
today. The inspiration for this creation
is the ‘Create Your Own Background and Make It The Star one of my all time
favourite challenges lol!I really am a
wee bit obsessed with the new stencil and stamp set I was able to purchase: I
am in love with them lol!Anyways here
it is …
A bigger one this time 148mm square
Nice and flat for posting
The flower closer up
A lot of very useful sentiments in this set
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
card started as a snippet of white card.
I used a large piece of card from another project and I attached the outer
stencil with Washi tape and I placed the inner flower stencil inside the big
stencil so that I could paint the outline.
I used the pink (Beautifully Grunge) to paint within the stencil, then I
used the gold (Essentials set) to add gold highlights to the pink. I used the pink for the background but much,
much paler lol! I have to admit the pink
colour popped more than I expected it to.
It is one of the blessings of the AquaTints – I need to remember to add
less paint to my palette next time lol!
The stencil set contains multiple parts and I love that because it means
I can get many different looks from it.
Thank you so much for taking
the time to visit and comment. I really
do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend ttfn Karen x
