Nice to see you and
wishing you a great week
ahead whatever you are
Today we have Angela Radford
with us and she is going to
start us off with our new topic
for this week:
"Hi all, Angela here to show you what fun
I've been having with this collection of
Fresco paints by PaperArtsy.
To start this project I applied paint with a roller
onto a large stamp block but this could easily
be done on your craft mat too.
I then applied the paint to my card turning
it as I went to get a nice even amount all round.
I prefer to apply this at right angles to the
edge of the card but that's entirely up to you.
I continued applying the other colours until
I had a nice surface to start the stamping.
I actually made two Masterboards,
slightly different colour schemes
And here is a close-up of some of the stamping
using Tracy Scott's stamps ETS07.
I heat embossed these with clear embossing powder
I have used an A3 sheet of card for this
but you could easily do this with A4 too.
Whilst stamping on the Masterboard
I used the second generation of ink
by stamping it onto a card blank
And here 's what it looked like completed.
I wanted to use some of the spare bits of card
to stamp some of the centres of the flowers so
cut round the flowers removing the spare sections
"Waste Not Want Not" as they say...
and we now have lots of extra bits to work with.
And here we are all cut out and ready to play with
Sections were cut away and used to build up the flowers.
Just had to add a little something to the inside too.
The sentiment stamp is by Woodware: Just to Say.
And here is the finished card with the flowers
mounted onto the stamped card blank.
Finished it off with a Tim Holtz Thinlits die: Celebration 14.
Words and some Stickles Glitter glue to enhance the flowers
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this card.
Happy crafting, Angela xXx"
I certainly enjoyed watching you put this
card together Angela! Thank you very much
I like to have a Masterboard handy
and now I think I'll add a pot of cut
out flower shapes and I shall be
ready to make a card in a jiffy
