Playing with fresco paints again!

I managed to fit a little bit of crafting tonight and had a lovely play with the fresco paints again. This time I started with the Tracy Scott ones and added in some of the Seth Apter ones later on. 

I used the brayer to add the colour around the panel of mixed media cardstock and then also did a little bit of stamping using the jofy alphabet mini stamp. 

This technique means very little control and resulted in a blotchy pattern for the background. I love it. Even if others might think it looks like a big mess! 


Next I grabbed a new Jofy stencil and the green patina paint to create the fan type flowers in the background. On this one I added white doodling and also the number stencilling. 

This one I added some more stamping with Kim Dellow stamps and doodling with a black pen round some of the elements. 

On both I edged the panels with paint, a different colour for each and also then added black archival too. 

To finish I added Kim Dellow stamped flowers using embossing and then coloured the flowers using the translucent paint and added some flicks of the paint too. 

The sentiments are the Emma Godfrey and I used Kirsten Sheridans idea of white on black with white embossing. Love how they pop on the busy background. 

A nice and quick play to make these bright cards for the stash! 

Happy crafting!
