It's the end of the week already!
For any of you as time
challenged as me I would advise
a more realistic expectation
of what we can achieve in a
week is called for........
Louise Thomson is with us
today to share a leaving card
"I started this project by applying strips
of random Washi tape on to a piece of
I gave it a coating in Nougat
fresco paint, followed by
some jade paint.
I added water and wiped back some
of the jade fresco paint to keep it
light and textured.
Using more fresco paints as an ink,
I stamped the IO clouds stamp.
The archival ink used here is permanent
and perfect for stamping over shinier
surfaces like that of the Washi tape.
I ended up using three of the four
colours in the new archival mini set one.
I wanted a bit more texture so I
used a set of nesting circle dies
to create rings
Then on a spare piece of paper I
stamped the air balloon again,
cut it out and mounted it using
lots of 3d foam pads.
Next I used dies to cut out the
lettering I wanted...
and spritzed with colour bloom
for a shimmery, textured finish
I added the lettering and highlighted it
using fineliner, then popped a border
around the edge to finish."

A lovely card Louise,
Entirely appropriate for
us too as we go on to
a new week.....
