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.
my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well.
I’ve been playing with some new stamps again and this time
colouring with both acrylics and watercolours, but mainly acrylics.
I have to say that I am really pleased with the finished look of this
card and here is the end result …
An A5 card
It has some depth but not too much
The painted background
I love this pick up!
A final look
Created for me and especially
for these Challenges
tried something new this time. I roughly drew the land, the sky and
the sun with watercolour crayons. Once I was happy with the
‘sketched’ element I stamped and embossed the car in position. I
did take it further by colouring the scene with my watercolours but
it wasn’t as bold as I hoped so I added a layer of matt medium then
I coloured with my Pebeo acrylics paints, I actually added another
layer of acrylic to the car/pick up and then lines of wax to the sky,
so that it looks like there are beautiful sun rays in the sun rise.
I added the die cut sentiment and of course I had a left over die cut
leaf which I also coloured and added to the scene to give it an extra
touch of autumness lol!
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
soon ttfn Karen x
