Here's a card I made this evening using a selection of Funky Fossil Designs goodies.
We're back home after a couple of days away at the caravan, really just checking it out after the awful wind and rain of earlier this week. Fortunately all was well!
I received a package while I was away of a rolling drawer unit I'd ordered from Hobbycraft. I've organised my inks into it, as the selection I used seems to be growing rapidly. I had been using a three tier trolley, but it just wasn't working for me any longer.
Anyway, back to how I made this card I started off with a square piece of white card. I used the Funky Fossil "Pine Cones" stencil with two shades of Archival Inks "Fern Green" and "Potting Soil". Using a paint brush, I added colour between the cones using "Tea Dye" Distress Oxide Ink.
In the background, I used "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Ink with a blending brush to lightly cover the card, using "Tea Dye" Distress Oxide Ink closer to the edges.
Using "Morning Mist" Versafine Clair grey ink I stamped the Funky Fossil A7 Vintage Script in second generation stamping.
I splattered white paint by tapping a Posca Pen over the surface and left to dry for a couple of minutes.
Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Funky Fossil "Christmas Small Print" stamp set using Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink. I inked the edges of the card using the same coloured ink using a finger dabber.
This is a stunning traditional Christmas card Sam,the pine cone stencilling and background are absolutely fantasticReplyDelete
Thank you so much xDelete
Sorry, meant to say the trolley is a great find and it looks as though it holds quite a lot with all the trays, and great that it has wheels. xReplyDelete
It's really handy to move around. The drawers are not very strong, but ideal for things like ink pads.Delete
