I was away for the Canada Day long weekend so I won’t have a Tuesday Technique post for you today – sorry if you were looking for it! I’ll be back next week with something new!
I did manage to keep up with my index cards while I was lazing away at the cabin though! 🙂
This was a background left over from when I was working on my alphabet stamps card. It had previously been stamped and gessoed over, then left. I liked the background but it didn’t work for the cards I was doing at that time so I saved it. I kept it pretty simple since I had minimal supplies with me – a few stamps, some mist, and stickers.
I really wanted to play with the Dylusions house stamps, since I finally broke down and bought them, and my Distress Markers, since I love the way they play with gesso, but when I went to get them, they were at home. Hmmmmm….
So I misted some colours on my craft mat and grabbed my paintbrush. Luckily, it worked! I simply painted the grassy hill and the houses, let that dry, then misted some Perfect Pearls and added some Chitchat stickers.
I like how the mist worked, though it took forever to dry, and I love the background of letters. Plus, those little houses are the cutest! There’s also the appearance of great texture from the gesso but it’s actually pretty smooth IRL.
My last card for the month is super simple. I sprayed some mist on my craft sheet, misted with Perfect Pearls to tone down the colours and make them even more fluid, then painted them on, taking care to blend them together. I used a Tim Holtz stamp and a Jillibean Soup label sticker.
Definitely not my fave of the series, but it’s another one done! I’ll be back later with the first one for July – Canada Day!
