Thinking of you


Hello Crafty Friends ! Sharing a monochromatic mixed media card today .


Started by applying gesso to  card panel ,then glued news paper scraps at some places and one more layer of gesso,then a layer of crumpled tissue. Used a stencil to create some more texture using texture paste.After it was dry I did some loose water coloring in shades of blue.

I have stamped the image on vellum and layered a  paper scrap below it and distressed with DI.Stitched both the panel on the textured panel and adhered it on top folding card base.

Supplies used :
Stencil :  Prima - Poppies and Peonies Collection
Stamp : LaBlanche stamp ,Fiskars Simple Expressions
Archival Ink -Jet Black
Watercolor pencils

Linking it to :
Color Q : # 282 ( I was inspired by the girl image at top )

  2. I made the trip over to see your inspiration piece, and I must say, WOW! Love the original, but I especially LOVE your rendition, Miss Pooja! Beautiful, and such gorgeous texture with just a hint of the newspaper showing through to give the feel of the print, but not distract from your pretty image, the wonderful textures, and the great stitching! Love this (can you tell? LOL) Hope your week is extra special, Pooja! hugs, de
