Not feeling top notch today. It seems I have been fighting a cold for days and it really seems to have settled in. I have a big post of chicken soup on the go and maybe that will help knock it out of my system.
But I did manage my BIG CARD nonetheless. Tried a few things today. I had some crayons hanging about so I shaved some bits onto the card then ironed it with a bit of acetate over it – and a few notebook sheets over that, lest the whole thing melt into a gloopy puddle.
I added some stencils, inking thru them, and THAT ink was resisted as well, which gave me a nice effect.
I did lay a grid over the top (that was my spatter guard from the £ store) and misted red ink thru that. Splattered on some white paint as well, and you can’t see it but there is a bit of gold Pearl-ex daubed here and there. The letters are a stencil as well. I have a lot of stencils and really need to remember that as they work well for lots of things. Overall this one seems a lot more freeform than some of them, which is odd for me as I tend to be more rigid in my placement of elements. Maybe the whole process will make me let go a bit more.
