Hope you had an enjoyable weekend. Tonight, I have a quick post to update with my most recent index cards. For Day 23, I tried out the new summer seasonal distress inks (salty ocean and picked raspberry) and a crafter’s workshop stencil. I sponged the ink onto the stencil which gives a very clean stencil image. I overlapped the two colors in the middle area of the stencil to arrive at another vibrant color! I dripped some water over the image to get a cool effect. Then I stamped the quote from an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday set. Here’s how it turned out:
For Day 24, I sprayed dylusions sprays over a dylusions stencil, masking off the interior section of the stencil. Then I inked over the whole card with the summer seasonal distress ink in mowed lawn. I stamped the clouds in white ink. I stamped the house in black ink on scrap white cardstock and coloured with stampin’ up markers. I cut out the houses out and adhered them to the background with popdots. Here’s the finished product:
For Day 25, I was playing with dylusions sprays and dylusions stencils. But I thought that that was too much like yesterday’s card. So I covered the whole card with gesso. Then I stamped the quote from a Tim Holtz stamp set and the argyle image in picked raspberries and the other image in salty ocean. Then I used a sponge to add some mowed lawn to the quote and picked raspberries around the outer edge. When I sponged, the images weren’t quite dry and kind of smudged which was an unexpected, but welcome, effect. Here’s the final product.
