Hallo Everyone!

Well it is March 1st today -
time continues to fly by 
at an alarming rate........
......that means we are all
busy people............enjoy!

Angela Radford is with us
today to start the new theme
with a fantastic card for
the star in your life......

"Hi all, I'm back to show you what I've been up to 
with these gorgeous Seth Apter stamps. 

To start the Masterboard for this project I began 
by brayering paint onto an A3 sheet of card.

You can see from this photo that you must be prepared 
to make some mess so make sure you have your 
workplace well protected.....or is it just me that's messy!?

I continued to apply the paint until satisfied with the coverage. 
I used a set designed by PaperArtsy for Seth Apter. 
I also mixed some of these colours to increase the range available

 Next I started stamping. 
It's important when stamping with acrylics to 
spread the paint evenly across the palette otherwise 
it will be too thick and you will not get a clear image

More stamping fun and here we are with the completed Masterboard.

 When I do projects like this I hate wasting the paint 
and I found myself with too much of the Mahogany 
on my palette so thought I would stamp it 
onto a clean sheet of card........
well this just changed my original idea for this card!

So to put all this together I began by creating a 
Z-fold card.

Cut all the pieces to size including some 
deep red card for matting and we're ready to go!

Started layering the pieces together, not bad for some waste paint!

 I completed this by adding some red brad stars 
from my stash and the TIME AFTER TIME stamp image 
from the same Seth Apter set. 

The sentiment is by Tim Holtz stamped with Mahogany distress ink. 

Hope you enjoyed watching me make this card. 

Happy crafting, Angela"

Yes, we did enjoy you making this card Angela
Just love it when you show us your change of
mind and the thought process behind it - just
goes to show there is no need to waste a thing

'Till tomorrow
