I do love a challenge...and to try new techniques
so a play day is when I make a card just for that reason.
This card was made to incorporate the following challenges;
My printer is on strike,
so I shuffled through some old images I had already printed out in the past
and found this "lovely lady" from A Day For Daisies" for Fab n Funky.
I wanted to use the TT341 Sketch, but how to work it into the
"One layer" challenge from Promarkers?
I cut some masks in the shapes from the sketch...
chose some soft chalky pink inks...
and stared inking around the shapes.
Removing a layer at a time ...
and then outlining the shapes with a black micron pen.
To add flowers for TPS I used a selection of small stamps,
and repeat stamped to give the impression of patterned papers.
I used a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers
to first add colour to the flowered backgrounds...
and then subtle colour to the lovely lady.
She was a joy to fussy cut a la SOS and glue directly over the sketch.
The colour palette was inspired by the photo at Sunny Day Crafting
(a chalk board with muted pink writing),
and the hammered card base meant the stamps looked smudged
and add to the chalky effect of the inks
The swirly handwritten look to the sentiment also works for
Sunny Day challenge inspiration :D
Now go play!!!
