I’ve had a super weekend, but boy am I exhausted! Mum, Dad and my niece Bethany were over for a visit, and although the weekend was action packed, unfortunately I didn’t get to spend much time the craft room. So instead I’ve pulled out a photo of a card that I made a little while ago but still hadn’t gotten round to showing you yet. This isn’t my usual kinda bright and colourful style, but hey, we all need a break from the norm every now and again!
For this card I went for a more arty-farty kinda look, as I started by inking a page from an old french novel. Next I painted it with gesso to create a light background to stamp on. I purposely painted the gesso roughly, as I wanted a grungy look. Next I stamped a music background onto the paper, along with some flowers using distress ink. The torn edges give a more rustic feel, and I thought the gingham/ plaid paper worked really well as a vintage style background to use for matting and layering. No surprises that the text stamp is from Unity stamps, one of my many Kit of the Months. I just love how versatile these stamp kits are as they push the boundaries of my creative imagination in all sorts of directions.
Thanks for stopping by.
I love this card!
