She Was Full Of Wonder by Lynne Moncrieff



I have a card to share this week where I have created a background which has no stamping but there is texture in the form of modelling paste used with a stencil and a painterly effect achieved with the use of Twinkling H20s.


Twinkling H20s Shades of You (I also used various Twinkling H20s I already had in my stash)
Watercolour Paper (substitute with Ranger Watercolour Paper)
Palette Knife (or old credit card)
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tiny Attacher



Create texture and pattern at top and bottom edges of watercolour paper panel using the butterfly component of the Mini Specimens Stencil and Light Modelling Paste.

(If you are a cardmaker or enjoy working on tags then Light Modelling Paste is a worthwhile investment, keeping the heavier texture paste for canvas, wood and substrates other than cardstock)

Randomly apply Gesso. Leave to dry before applying a variety of Twinkling H20s. Ensure you work with very wet paints to create drips by continually misting with water.

Heat set, abrade the edges then adhere to pre-scored 6”x4” cardbase (or create cardbase from white cardstock). 

Create a wash of Twinkling H20s onto white cardstock. Stamp Think and Wonder girl. (If you stamp when the cardstock is ever so slightly damp you get a lovely diffused effect which is nice for vintage style stamps). Re-ink fretwork border of stamp. Cut and tear around this element and layer onto main image. Also stamp the word wonder and stamp butterfly from Jane’s Garden three times. Fussy cut and ink edges. Adhere stamped elements to cardbase, adorning the girl’s hair with one of the butterflies.

Embellish card with Prima paper flower and bakers twine, attaching with Tiny Attacher.


Until next time,
