Hello my crafty friends (:o)
Today i'm sharing my last set of 13 cards for
The first set can be found here
The second set can be found here
The third set can be found here
When it comes to painty, messy backgrounds (can't help myself, but i'm not a Gelli Plate artist)...i'm absolutely out of my comfort zone.
I'm total getting lost and all my backgrounds will turn out brown- ish, when i'm creating without any inspiration. With this type of backgrounds i'll always have a look at my favorite admired artists and in this case it's a journal page created by the full time mixed media artist, currently the Editor at Craft Stamper Magazine, Trish Latimer
The base are sanded and pre - gessoed playing cards
I started by mixing DecoArt Media Fluid Arylics Titan Buff and Prussian Blue Hue
Below you see the different amount you need...
I painted with a sponge
Next i've stamped Media Fluid Acrylics Titanium White
(Stamp from LaBlanche)
Applied also Media Fluid Acrylics Titanium White with a bubble stencil
Same bubble stencil and Media Fluid Acrylics Green Gold
Below you see the background so far....
Stripes made with an old credit card, curves painted with a brush
Next colour Media Fluid Acrylics Pyrrole Red
Stamped circles with a lid from an empty bottle
Some accents with black permanent marker
Now...for the embellishments....painted watercolour paper with the same colours i've used before
Ignore the grey.....i didn't used it
A sheet of patterned paper from an old basic grey line
Painted stripes with Spectrum Aqua Markers
The cutting part
Adhered the individual parts to the card
More painty accents with a small brush ( notice the tiny dots in white and red)
Sealed the whole card with DecoArt Media Ultra - Matte Varnish to get rid of any shine...
...because the only shine i wanted to leave was on the heart and that was archived with DecoArt Media Gloss Varnish
Yes, 14 cards...!!
One for me...and 13 for you....if you paticipated the swap
I hope they arrive safely
