Inky and Painty
Good evening everyone,
I have had a lovely relaxing long weekend - Simon has been away and now that I have Mondays off, I had three days at home to myself. I cleaned the house on Saturday morning, then got out all my craft stuff (...well not ALL of it, obviously!!) and set about making some cards , none of which I can show you yet! Sorry!
These two are samples I did a while ago for the Sam's Shapes TV show. These are fun sets to use.
For the first one, I brayered acrylic paint onto some mixed media card, then used the paint to 'ink' the diamond stamp and made a pattern down one side, I really like the incomplete image, so I didn't coat the stamp too perfectly!
I did the same sort of thing with the outline oval in a different colour.
Let it all dry, then stamp the images into place with archival ink.
I coloured the Merry Christmas with gold pen
Back to work and reality tomorrow!
Hope you have a great week.
Thank you for visiting,
