Following on from yesterday's post, here are two cards I made today for my two cousins.
|Painted vellum card|
Pearlescent 5 x 7 card. The Lily image (Art Impressions stamp) was stamped on vellum/parchment with stone grey Stazon, and then painted with my acrylic paints, and embossed from the underside. Mounted on to black silk mirri and some card-candi added as imitation brads. Computer generated sentiment, also mounted on black silk mirri.
This technique of painting with acrylic was a bit of an experiment, as I had seen one of the Paint Fusioneers do something similar with ivy on parchment, and it looks so effective, that I thought I would give it a go. Next time I try the technique, I will emboss the stamped image first, and take it from there.
|Sympathy Card with Poppies|
Again 5 x 7 pearlescent card, with a simple poppy stamped image (Penny Black Stamp) and computer generated sentiment, both mounted on purple silk mirri card, and a strip of purple flower ribbon added. (there isn't a smudge or a crease on the sentiment - looks like my camera lens needs cleaning!)
