I hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend - usual thing here for a bank holiday - rain! Still maybe tomorrow will be better......
My card today is one I did for the Diva Red workshop with Moira on Saturday. I treated myself to some Frsco Chalk acrylics (if you know me, you don't need to ask how many!!) and I have been thoroughly enjoying using them, so I wanted to have a go at the workshop.
To make the background for these, I used a smooth white card and added a tiny drop of paint on the back of a piece of cut 'n' dry foam. I put the paint on the card in a couple of dabs, then blended them The paint dries very quickly! Keep repeating this with different colours until you like what you have. I then used some of the paint to 'inkup' the crackle stamp and stamp that over the card too.
I cut the card to the size I needed for the card, then stamped the Clarity butterfly on a spare piece and added the metallic glaze which leaves a lovely shimmery finish.
Cut the butterfly out. Stamp the background piece with grasses using black archival and add a sentiment, then add attach the butterfly.
As always, all stamps (and the chalk acrylics) are from Claritystamp.
The next two cards are the ones Moira did for the workshop, using Hobby Art stamp sets. The cute little bird is stamped, coloured then cut out and attached to the die cut part of the image
The birds on the wire are stamped on a piece of card, the the posts are drawn in and the flowers all stamped.
The birds are stamped again onto fusible fibres, cut out and stuck over the main stamped image.
We all had a great time, chatting and making cards, as well as sampling Veronica's delicious cakes, not a bad way to spend your time eh?
Have a great weekend
