As my friends and family know, I am rubbish at making cards and getting them sent off it time. I have all the stuff to make the cards,and I think I have the capabilities of throwing ink on paper to make it look pretty but I never seem to have time!
I met three very special ladies when I live in Glasgow and I am trying really hard to make sure they each get a handmade card that arrives on time, I think I am succeeding so far! This month it was Linda's turn and here is the card I made for her.
I started by laying a stencil on a sheet of paper and spritzing it with water. Then the fun - sprinkling on the Brushos! I absolutely love Brushos - the colours are so vibrant and I love seeing the different elements that make up each colour - the black is amazing with speaks of greens, blues and yellows.
While this was drying I stamped out 'Linda' with the Clarity alphabet stamps, and cut around the letters. I added a boarder with distress ink.
I thought the shape of the stencil was a bit lost with the Brushos so I laid the stencil back over and drew around it with a light purple colour. It was enough to highlight the stamp but it doesn't stand out a lot. After cutting down the background to size for the card I stuck the sentiment on with foam pads and added a black boarder with a Sharpie.
Finally I layered the topper on blue card. What do you think?
