I am back this week with my Guest designer project for AALL & Create. I made two cards with the beautiful newly released stamp sets by Tracy Evans #206 (Hexagon Stem), #200 (Hope) and #210 (Background Mash Up) together with stencil #59 by Autour de Mwa.
The first card uses light colour paint tones, all brayered separately onto mixed media cardstock.
I don't dry between each layer, I just keep adding the colours until I am happy with the result. I then applied the stencil, using both paint and gesso dabbed through with an old makeup sponge.
I cut down the parts of the background I liked, to fit my card and mounted these onto black card.
For the above card I stamped, coloured and fussy cut four poppies from stamp set #200 and over-stamped these lightly with stamp #210 to add some texture. I added two flowers to the card and then layered up the flowers with sticky pads to give them some dimension.
For my second card I simply brayered in a different set of colours, adding some stencilling as previously. This time I stamped stamp set #206 directly onto the brayered base, stamping six further poppies and layering these up as before, after over-stamping each of the poppies with stamp set #210.
The sentiments on both cards are stamped from the two flower stamp sets.
You can find worldwide stockists for the stamps and stencil I used today, HERE.
I do apologise if I have not visited you lately, sometimes life just gets in the way
but hopefully normal service will be resumed soon! In the meantime, thanks so
much for your visit, it is much appreciated, especially in these days where blog visiting seems to
have fallen out of favour somewhat.
Hugs, Anne xx
