Hi everyone! Gloomy days call for happy, bright colors, as shown on my latest set of Artist Trading Cards.
I started by painting a strip of heavy watercolor paper with Lindy's Gang Magicals (Hi Maintenance Magenta, Yodeling Yellow, Lederhosen Laurel, and Guten Tag Teal) and Sprays (Urban Amethyst and Freaky Frankenlime). The green is a mix of Freaky Frankenlime Spray with Magical Shakers (Lederhosen Laurel and Yodeling Yellow). Then I cut four to measure 2 1/2" X 3 1/2".
All of the stenciling was done with Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black) applied to three different stencils.
The white flowers were stamped and embossed with Lindy's Gang (Purely White) Embossing Powder. Then I embossed the black ones onto white cardstock with LG (Midnight Pewter) Embossing Powder, painted them with the same colors in the background, curled up the petals, and added white puffy paint to the centers.
The clips were originally black, and got transformed with LG (Purely White) Embossing Powder, also used for the Spring words that were embossed onto strips of black cardstock. This one is my favorite!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and take care!
