There is beauty in simplicity

Hello everyone,

For today's AALL & Create post I have made a card. I wondered whether Tracy's fabulous Blossomed Numbers stamp would work on Tim Holtz' Worn Wallpaper so I tried and here is the result:

And here's how :

I started with cutting a piece of the Worn Wallpaper to the size of a card front. I then used a brayer and white acrylic paint to tone down the pattern. You can still see it though; just how I like it. When I was happy I used this stencil #63 and some pale blue paint to add some interest, I toned that down again too in the same way.

Next I stamped some parts of this fabulous stamp by Tracy Evans on the card, using Distress Oxide in Tumbled glass and Archival ink in Jet Black.  

Next I stamped one of the flowers and coloured it with watercolours and a water brush.

I also splattered it with this white paint pen, I did the same to the card front. 

I added doodling around the edges and added the cut out flower to the card front. A Small talk sticker and a word from the stamp finished it off. 

I have used the following stamp and stencil:

#109 - Blossomed Numbers
#63 - Wood Pile
