Another sample from my Feb stamp release, love the texture on this one. I began with a 5x7 card and covered this with Grunge Paste thru a stencil.
I then started to add paint in layers, first Tango, then Cherry Red then Baltic Blue. Next a layer of Snowflake, then Smurf. Once these were dry I rubbed back with a babywipe to reveal the layers of colour.
The numbers were stencilled with Baltic Blue and then bumped with Snowflake.
I painted card with Baltic Blue, then added Crackle Glaze and then Snowflake. I like to always rub back the crackling a little to distress it.
Next I stamped the spikey flower from EDY18. I cut these out and mounted them onto stiff black card.
Because the black card is stiff I was able to curl up the ends of the petals, adding great dimension. I also added orange buttons to the centres.
To finish, the flowers were added to the card, some flat and some on foam pads to add extra height and the text was stamped over Cherry Red.
I just love the height achieved on these, I wish i had thought to add another layer of petals to make them more like water lillies... ah well, next time..
