My card no 2 today.. made with the same potato... eeeer... I mean a 'stamp'... no, I haven't lost it... well, at least not totally... I mean, I used a potato to carve a flower, a leaf and a tiny flower out of it and used DYLUSIONS sprays. I have written more about it in my first post today. The Craft Stamper Magazine's Take it, make it May challenge is all about stamping with carved potatoes so I thought I'd join the fun and made three cards, all being made with different media.
My second card is made with
the same stamps only this time I prepared my background using Midnight Blue and Cherry Pie Dylusions, I splattered some water for the ghoasting effect and dried it. Next I put a little bit of Gesso on my craft sheet and used the stamps to stamp with the Gesso. Knowing the Gesso will take on the colour beneath it I stamped on the blue side and on the red side of the card. And this is what happened...
Nice, eh! This card started to look very much like art journaling so I went with it. I doodled with my black Artist pen by Faber-Castell and with my white Signo pen. The card needed a bit of something else so I used the artsy sentiment to go with the art journaling theme and added some clear tiny sequins to the center of my tiny flowers (this was sooo fiddly, but totally worth it!). I adhered the panel to a purple card base for contrast and it looks fab! Here's the finished card...
I hope you like it. There's one more card coming today so don't go anywhere just yet. Have a browse around my blog for more crafty creations.
