Final two cards made from the basket challenge… yes I managed 12 in total!
This one took a bit of time to make as I used glossy texture paste over the inking and that takes a while to dry. I started with a mop up piece of card from spritzing the gelli plate. Then I added the stencil and added more ink before then adding the paste over the top.
I then decided to use the small Jofy flower stamp onto bookprint and used brusho to add colour.
I added gems to the centre of the flowers. Love how the stencilling is all glossy and raised.
This one is a simple case of paint added to the background, onto which I had added a strip of bookprint, and then some stencilling. I then added the stamping to the front and used the white embossing powder.
I added some pink and white posca pen doodling too!
So that’s the 12 cards I made…
… not bad considering they were all made in the course of one afternoon!
Loved this challenge… and ended up with a smaller pile of stuff on the desk at the end. (See below). It was much easier to tidy up as I hadn’t been getting lots out and so could easily put it back so will definitely have another go at this again in future.
With a reduced amount of supplies or colours you have to just get on with the creating. It really helps!
More of the cards I made crafting out of one basket of supplies.
This one was lots and lots of layers of paint and then after stamping the flower I created a mask and overstamped using black versafine the Badass artchick stamp which gave a fab background. I decided the flower needed to look different though so stamped it onto bookprint and used the brushos to colour it.
Once dry I fussy cut it out and added it to the card and added posca pen doodles.
I kept the card quite simple as it was such an intense background and focal image so just added doodled lines.
The next one I took the same image and made a very different looking card.
This time i stamped the image onto a piece of paper I had been using to add paint to the previous background. It was originally a piece of map paper so very smooth and originally glossy.
I again added posca doodles.
I chose to add it to a piece of card I had simply stamped one background stamp on and then edged.
To the card I then added some embellishments… a little corrugated tag, and some chipboard hearts I had given the embossing powder treatment using the Deep sea baked texture embossing powder.
A much more simple card but equally fun using the large flower image from Jofy.
Today I am sharing the art journal page I made for Millie in her circle journal.As a reminder, this time my colours for the journal are teal and lime and I started with a gelli print pattern using the small shape gelli plates and distress oxides.Onto these prints I added some stencilling using the inks and a few different stencils.I love how graphic this design is but still maintaining a lot of white space.Next I added lots of doodles, some stamping and then created some flower focal points onto some music book print and layered them with some paper flowers and the sparkly gems from Artful Days Goodie box stash.I finished with some ink splatters and the sentiment stickers from Tim Holtz.Love how these came out.Happy crafting!Catherine
