Day 5 – 30 Days Of Card Making
Bit of a longer session today which meant more time to chuck stuff on paper. Was it worth it … ?
Regular readers of this blog will know why I am doing this mini challenge in order to reunite my mojo with my craft space. To follow the full journey, you can find all related post in the 30 Days Of Card Making archive.
Ok, on with today’s creation.
Let’s start with the background panels. Texture paste was spread through a stencil and allowed to dry. Watercolour ink and wax paste were used to colour the result. A little white and yellow heavy body acrylic paint were then used to dry brush some detail in.
This was then chopped up into section, the edges inked and these glued to the card front.
The flowers were created by allowing the tissue – used to mop up ink etc – to dry and then gluing it to a piece of card and using the same techniques from the background to added colour and detail.
Gold wax paste was used to dry brush the die cut butterfly.
One of our group – mojo, craft space or I – decided to add some of this as a mat for the sentiment strip. Good choice? Not sure, but it is what it is.
It’s going all right this challenge thing, innit?
