Fond Farewell

Fond Farewell

Hi There!

It's the end of the week already!

For any of you as time
 challenged as me I would advise 
a more realistic expectation 
of what we can achieve in a
 week is called for........

Louise Thomson is with us
today to share a leaving card

"I started this project by applying strips
 of random Washi tape on to a piece of 
white card.

I gave it a coating in Nougat
 fresco paint, followed by 
some jade paint.

 I added water and wiped back some 
of the jade fresco paint to keep it
 light and textured.

Using more fresco paints as an ink, 
I stamped the IO clouds stamp.

 The archival ink used here is permanent
 and perfect for stamping over shinier
 surfaces like that of the Washi tape.

 I ended up using three of the four 
colours in the new archival mini set one.

 I wanted a bit more texture so I 
used a set of nesting circle dies 
to create rings

Then on a spare piece of paper I
 stamped the air balloon again,
 cut it out and mounted it using
 lots of 3d foam pads.

Next I used dies to cut out the 
lettering I wanted...

and spritzed with colour bloom
 for a shimmery, textured finish 

 I added the lettering and highlighted it 
using fineliner, then popped a border 
around the edge to finish."

A lovely card Louise,

Entirely appropriate for
us too as we go on to
a new week.....

'Till tomorrow
