I was thrilled when Linda McClain from Catered Crop contacted me earlier this week to tell me that I was a hit on the Banners and Bunting Challenge.
Then Linda told me about Sunday's Quickfire and the Recipe swap is Rainbows! Check out all the details here.
So here's what I created
Supplies: Outlines Alphabet - Papertrey Ink, Tim Holtz Distress inks - Fired Brick,
Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans,
Chipped Sapphire, Milled Lavender, Anita's Tall White Card Blank,
glossy accents, Black Tuxedo ink - Memento,
Guillotine - Purple Cows and pop dots.
Okay - so this card was FUN to make.
I thought a splattered paint effect would create a fun card. Firstly I stamped the word "ten"/brackets and dots on blank cardstock. I then used glossy accents to "fill in" the word and brackets.
I wasn't sure if the ink would "resist" in the areas I had added the glossy accents - it didn't! I think it may "resist" with other paints but the distress ink travelled underneath through the paper. I don't mind because I actually like the finished product - a happy accident!.
I put some ink from my ink pad onto my kraft sheet, sprayed some water to make it liquid and then used a paintbrush and mask to do a portion of the card at a time. I started in the middle with the green then the blue, violet and lavender. I then moved to the other side of the green and then did the yellow, orange and red.
I trimmed my cardstock after the inks were dry to the size I wanted, matted and layered using pop dots and then added that layer to the based layer of cardstock.
