Well after working on my Art Journal (see previous post) I was relaxed and enjoying my creative time so stayed at my desk and made a couple more projects. The weather here has been beautiful and spring like putting me in the mood to use fresh, pastel colours. First a card made using two colours I don’t go to often, Blue and Yellow -
The damask and corner stamps are from Debbie Moore and the sentiment is a Penny Black. I’ve stamped on manila cardstock and clear embossed before colouring over with distress ink - the embossing is a resist. The card blank is coloured with the same ink and a darker shade used to stamp the corners. Flowers, pearls and lace finish the job. I’m sharing this card here -
My next Spring themed creation is an altered box (shaped like a book) and the first project I'm sharing using Friendly Plastic which I have recently been brave enough to try and am in love with ! I first applied Gesso, then Crackle paint before stamping with leaves and flowers (stamps by Stamp Addicts).
The Friendly Plastic is embedded with buttons and beads and a flower sequin. I’m really quite pleased with how it turned out as I’m still really experimenting with FP. The box is for spare die cut letters.
I’m sharing this here -
I hope you’re all enjoying nice weather too..thanks for visiting…Esther xx
