Loving Ellen's new stamps but because they are uber new, I had to improvise. Need to get them as soon as!
I started by choosing PA Fresco paints Chartreuse, Hey Pesto, Lake Wanaka and Beach Hut for my project.I didn't use a folder as my organising days are sort of on the back burner. Instead I used a sheet of A4 card with the idea that I will play and then chop into 4 pieces to make cards (a brill idea from Ellen!)
I brayered my selected colours, overlaid Snowflake in parts and then stamped tone on tone ( fab idea Ellen). I used PA stamp Squiggly ink 15 and a Dyan Reavely circles stamp. I highlighted some of the circles with black pen and stamped lines using archival ink and Snowflake fresco, stamping with an old credit card.
Next, I tore up some strips of Docrafts printed tissue paper, Madame Payraud's and glued onto my work using Claudia Hellmuth multi medium matte. As I mentioned, I will chop this up and make it into four cards somehow or other which is another of Ellen's masterstrokes. Much respect Ellen….loved playing and looking forward to tomorrow!
gorgeous and speedy work... I love the new stamps too, wish they'd been at Ally Pally yesterday!ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous Hazel! I love the colour combo you chose and I would say great improvisation with the stamping but I haven't seen Ellen's inspiration yet, lol! That brayer work is fabulous!ReplyDelete
Wow! You got busy straight away! Love your project and can't wait to see how you use it - ATC's or cards would both be awesome! It always amazes me how they change when you cut a large project down to smaller size. Show pix! Thanks for joining in the challenge! xxxReplyDelete
wow super speedy! looks great, can't wait to see it used on cards.ReplyDelete
This is super cool. I tried mine thinking this is an easy way to get back some mojo. I was wrong it just didn't turn out right. Will be trying again today.
It looks great Hazel, I like your colour choices.ReplyDelete
WOW you were quick off the mark, can't wait to see your cards. I did pretty much the same thing as we don't go mad for manilla folders here in the UK do we, but turned mine into envelopes!!ReplyDelete
