I am a huge fan of Keren Baker’s style of crafting, she makes CAS cards and projects look very easy. Over at the Paper Artsy Blog this week it has been her turn to play. I loved what she created here.
My version hasn’t turned out as well but it is the first time i have played with this technique, should get better as i practice more.
Used three colours of Distress Inks at random, i like to do random every now and again, you discover what does and doesn’t work. Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Spiced Marmalade.
Used a That Special Touch leaf stencil as i don’t own the one Keren used. Added too much ink and water to the stencil as when it was spritzed with water it looked nothing like Kerens image lol. Used it anyway and i think it looks okay so far.
Took some of the excess and used on the reverse of the card, this is what it should have looked like, much more subtle. Dried the ink off with a paper towel which removes some of the colour and made them a little more pastel.
Used Darcy Wilkinson’s stamp set EDY07 coloured with Inktense Pencils (this price is amazing for the 72 tin, i am not being sponsored by anyone to say this, they are usually around the £100 or more mark).
Glazed the flower basket with clear Rainbow Glaze, added some washi tape of birds and the world and used just one word from EDY07 set as thought it would be too much to add the whole sentiment.
Have kept the card flat as made for a birthday which is coming up very soon and have to post it.
Thanks for dropping by.
Looking forward to your comments.
