For this week's AALL & Create project I have made a card. It has turned out a little grungy but I like grungy ! lol I hope you do too.
First I used this stencil with modelling paste on water colour paper. After it dried I put on a layer of clear gesso. No reason other than just trying out how this would work.
Next I used a mixture of Lindy's Stamp gang spray and PaperArtsy Infusions to add colour. I kept adding more, drying between every layer, until I was happy. Also found that the gesso works great as it gives the chance to work the colours for longer.
Next I stamped the background.
Because the background was so busy already I thought I'd keep the main image white-ish by stamping it onto book pages. To give it a little more interest I stamped the solid petals again with a mix of pink and red inks to get the same colour approx as the background. I then cut everything out.
Before adding the main image and the sentiment I splattered some white on the panel with a paint pen and used a brayer and white paint to give it some more interest and texture. I then glued the flower in place and placed the sentiment. Lastly I went around the flower with black watercolour to make it stand out more.
This is the finished card. I used a blank card and glued the panel on it.
I have used the following AALL & Create products:
