Happy Saturday everyone!
I know some of you will be at Ally Pally this weekend - I hope you have a great time - it is always inspiring to go and see other people's work. It was at a craft show at the NEC that I first saw Barbara Gray doing her thing with torn bits of paper and a brayer - I was amazed at the wonderful effects she could create. I am still amazed by her work, she is a constant source of inspiration for me. I hope those of you going to AP manage to watch her in action.
My card today is another of my samples for the TV last weekend. I have used the new word chains, the 'boy and birds' and the branch that went with it in the set.
I decided to have a bit of a change and work on a buff coloured card, rather than white or cream
You get a mixture of colours and a slightly blurry effect.
Tear the sides then ink the edges
I stamped the boy with the fab new colours of archival ink I think this is cornflower and added the branch at the top and bottom.
Tear the sides and ink the edges.
Repeat for the word.
I mounted this all onto a white base card, but it looked too stark, so I stamped round the edges with the branch and shaded with old paper distress ink to soften it a bit.
I hope you like it. As always, thanks very much for your visit - don't forget to comment, I enjoy reading them!
Have a great weekend
