I did these two cards at a crafty night out with some friends. I had new stamps (Dylusions, of course!) and wanted to play!

#48 – upside down

I am not a fan of this card. You know how you have an idea in your head and it just doesn’t work out? Yeah. That’s this card.

First I stamped the body image and masked it. Then I misted with water, then Dylusions, then water again to blend. I went a little overboard with the liquid and had a far amount of seepage under the mask, though that didn’t bother me – I kind  of liked it anyway!

I then stamped the head image, but didn’t like it so I stamped it again and cut it out, colouring before adhering to the card. I stamped and cut out the sentiment and then added it.

If I had my time back I would have left the head out all together and put the body upside down…

Oh, well, it’s only one card out of 61, right? 🙂

#49 – adventures

Now this card was the opposite of the first – it turned out better than expected!

Again I misted and sprayed the background over a stamped body image but then I misted Studio Calico Shine over a stencil to give a little pop to the background.

I stamped and coloured the boots and wings over a gessoed card, which helped me blend and lighten the marker colours. I cut and added them to the card and then thought the sentiment was perfect for the winged boots.

Lots of shine and there’s some good dimension with the wings too (though I didn’t get a good picture of that) – they’re only adhered by the boots so they fly off the card.

I’m still hoping to get vacation pictures up today or tomorrow so keep an eye out for those! And, this is hard to believe, there are only a dozen more index cards left to do – today is actually the official final day but vacation put me behind a bit. Are you sick of them yet? 🙂
