HAPPY EASTER, HAPPY SPRING

Good morning crafty friends

Lovely sunny day yesterday and as I'm not allowed out I spent a little time sitting in the garden with a cheeky G&T then  I decided to do a little splattering in my craft room!  

This is a 6" x 6" white card base with a smaller white panel on top 

I added colour to the panel using a blending tool and an oxide ink.  I quite like the finished look as I think it looks like a sky

I added the splatters to the coloured card and, strange that it is, the splatters aren't showing on this first card! LOL

I coloured the flower using several of the watercolour pencils in the picture and added just the ends of a few yellow stamens to the centre of the flower

The flower was then splatted with a diluted white acrylic paint.  Mounting foam was added to the back and then positioned on the card

When flowers are raised like this one is I always colour the back of them so that they are 

 not just stark white.  Once in place I drew a stem to complete the flower

A sentiment was heat embossed onto white card and added to the card

INGREDIENTS:
  • broken china oxide ink - Ranger
  • Turkish Rose Mica Mist - Tonic 
  • watercloured pencils - Derwent & Spectrum Noir
  • flower image - Lisa Hedrick 
  • stamens - my stash
  • sentiment - SU Timeless Tulips


This week's card winner is:


Auntie Millie!

CONGRATULATIONS

Your card will be with you asap

  9. Lovely card June, and the splatters always add some nice interest and texture. I tried making a few splattered backgrounds this week but ended up with ink splattered everywhere except for my paper...sigh. I think I need to start putting my card stock inside of a shallow cardboard box to contain the mess. Have a Happy and safe Easter!

    1. Thank you Karen

      I used to be just the same when I first started 'splattering' and using a box is beneficial

  11. I have not heard of that artist. I like this flower. Ever have much luck with splatters. I either do not enough or completely saturate the page. Sitting in garden with a glass of wine with crackers. Hugs Mrs A.
