SPA - Sepia

It's been a while since I entered the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, the latest theme has been chosen by Rosie and she has chosen Sepia.

I started by gluing some gauze to the card and then gave it a coat of gesso. I put some acrylic ink at the top of the card and sprayed with water so that I could let the ink run down the card - I used three colours and dried each colour before adding the next one. I added some script and white splatters. The flower [Stampers Anonymous] was stamped onto white card, coloured with distress ink, cut out and glued to the card, I also stapled the stem. The words [Paperartsy] were stamped onto white card and cut out.

Thank you for dropping by.

Altered Playing Cards

Hi everyone. It's been a long time since my last post, my poor blog feels very neglected.

Today I'm sharing a couple of Altered playing cards that I've made for Marimi's Creative Cafe Facebook group challenge. There's a challenge every week, at the moment we are doing letters of the alphabet, the first two challenges are Art and Bubbles.

For both cards I used gesso, stencils, modelling paste, inktense sticks put on with a brush and sprayed with water, matte medium. pitt pens and gilding wax.

Thank you for dropping by and enjoy the rest of the day.
