Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Well I can honestly say that I am glad that this week is over. We all have these weeks I guess, I have thrown myself into Crafting as a coping mechanism.
Your Next Challenge
I thought that this week we could all try a 'New Technique or Style '.
We are always learning new craft techniques all of the time, card styles too, so I though that we could all try that this week. Maybe you could use a new method of colouring or try Vintage or Shabby Chic, maybe Clean & Simple or Steampunk try watercolouring.
New techniques could include anything, Stencilling, Masking Off, Embossing, Bokeh (circles) technique, you could use a Gelli Plate or just use a brayer. There are endless techniques and styles that you could try.
I used the 'Ghosting ' technique, I loved making this card, I also used 'Masking' to make this card. I decided that I was going to use Kraft card to create the background for my technique, I used a white ink pad to stamp the first or 'Ghost' layer, I used an Altenew stamp set, I stamped the flower, then masked it off and stamped the leaves, I then over stamped in Berry Burst and Old Olive ink, slightly off setting the stamp so that you get a narrow white or 'ghost' edge. You have to make sure the white layer is dry before adding the colour. The sentiment I stamped on a piece of white card in Berry Burst ink, I matted it onto Berry Burst ink and placed it above the flower. I matted the Kraft card front onto Berry Burst card and then onto a white mat and finally onto a Kraft card base.
I am really pleased with how it turned out.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
