Hasn't the weather in the UK been horrible lately ........... hardly Summer in my opinion ! This creation hopefully will bring a little colour into these dull and wet days we are experiencing at this time.
This is a postcard (6 inches x 4 inches) made from mountboard as part of a monthly swap at UK Stampers Forum. This months theme is 'In The Air' so I have loosely interpreted the theme in my creation. The card was trimmed to size and coloured with Ranger Dylusions sprays in vibrant turquoise, pure sunshine and cut grass. These were dried with a heat gun.
Next the pennant stamp (Lynne Perrella - PaperArtsy) was stamped top left with Archival black ink. The background was also grunged with spot and fleck stamps in Ultramarine Impress ink.
A Marriane diecut was used to cut a garland from white paper and this was trimmed and was added in a couple of places as shown. A Cuttlebug cut'n'emboss folder was used to diecut the hand from dark green paper. This was sprayed with black spray ink, blotted and rubbed over with the black Archival ink to highlight the relief.
The words were half printed and half hand-written in Posca and the same pens were used to edge and highlight the images on the card. The card has to travel to its recipient 'naked' in the post. I have sealed it with a light spray of cheap hair lacquer.
