Parisian Melange by Fliss Goodwin



Hello there, I have a rather bright creation for you this week as it was rather dull when I started it off so I wanted some cheery colours. I’ve been playing with mono printing again and combined this with some of my favourite Artistic Outpost stamps.


Here’s What You Need:

Stamps Used:

 Artistic Outpost Unmounted Stamp Sheets – Paris Exposition and Whimsical Melange

VersaFine Inks – Smokey Gray, Habanero
Thin Cardstock – White or Cream


Here’s How To:

·       I made the brightly coloured papers with the mono printing plate and the acrylic paints, adding blobs of paint and spreading with a brayer. I then made impressions in the paint with 2 different sizes of jar lid but you could use whatever you happen to have around the house for a similar effect.

·       I tore out a piece of painted paper to fit my square card blank and got creating with the Whimsical Melange set. I stamped the tape measure border across the bottom with the orange ink. I stamped the circles collage across the top and down the sides with the same ink and then added grid sections with the grey ink.

·       I stamped the mailing card tag on a slightly stronger piece of printed paper with the grey ink and then stamped on the Eiffel Tower image from the Paris set. I cut it out and added a mat of kraft card.

·       I stamped some bunting on a scrap of the printed paper and the Parisian lady on some cream card with the grey ink and cut everything out. Assemble the card with a mix of double sided tape and foam tape for added dimension.


Have a great weekend and see you next week.
