Blue Skies Ahead
My card today is made with a stamp from a new Artemio set that I bought at a discount price. I loved the cute little images although the sentiments are all in French.
I used crayons on acrylic paper for the background and blended with my fingers. I then dry brushed over the top with white gesso to dull the colours and mounted up onto black card.
To make the image stand out I scribbled more blue where the image would be. The shell border was punched from the trimming of the background using a Martha Stewart punch which was recently given to my by a friend when she was having a clear out. I just stuck the border to the bottom of the black card and the sentiment was also stamped onto a scrap of white card.
As I've used lots of snippets for this one I'm going over to join Pixies Snippets Playground Weeks 275 & 276
I would also like to join in with Darnell's NBUS Challenge #11 where we're invited to share some
Never Before Used Schtuff!
