Well, I did something today that I haven’t done in nearly a year – I went on a date!
I was a bag of jibbering nerves …
I’m pleased to say however that I didn’t make a fool of myself and the conversation flowed nicely. In fact the time flew!
As many of you know though, now it’s a waiting game – will he call to make a second date?!
That my dear readers is what inspired today’s artist trading card.
The telephone image was a free cover stamp from Craft Stamper magazine.
I stamped this out onto Neenah cardstock with a black archival inkpad. I made a post it note mask from the second generation ink and popped this over the telephone.
Versacolor pigment inkpads were then used to brush over the blush pink and light blue colours around the edges.
After peeling off the masks I coloured the telephone in with a metallic marker and then applied some smeary blobs of glitter glue.
As this dried I also used some Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA Glue in order to create the buttons on the dial. When these had dried I flood filled that area with some Diamond Glaze.
The final touch was the lettering. I used mini alphabet stamps but, knowing that I would get it wonky if I tried to stamp in a straight line (as my arms are aching from the exercise session that I did yesterday) I chose to do a deliberately quizzical jaunty angle to the phrase.
I then layered it onto some cardstock (I didn’t have any textured gold so I used some of the same sheet as the pink but coloured it with the metallic marker – clever eh?)
And that, my dear friends, was that!
Anyway, I’m off to sit by the phone and twiddle my thumbs.
