You May Say I’m a Dreamer…… by Donna Ratcliff

Morning all! More play time with some AquaTints today, the pastel set this week. I love the way the pastel colours overlay…….

What I used

Black Card
White Card Blank
Spectrum Noir AquaTints – Pretty Pastels 
Sheena Douglass Stencil – Beach Huts
PaperArtsy Ellen Vargo Stamps – EEV06
Artistic Outpost Stamps – Chalkboard Wisdom


What I did….

1. Now I apologise in advance to all of you who like to keep their masks and stencils clean and tidy but to start off with I covered the Beach Hut stencil with black Archival ink and then used it to ‘stamp’ the image onto a piece of white card by laying it on and rubbing all over it firmly with my hand.

2. Now to add some colour with the AquaTints. Using a flat paintbrush and the Pretty Pastels set I simply added overlaying patches of colour…..


3. Once I’d got all the colour on I wanted, I used some of the Ellen Vargo stamps to add some bits of random stamping around the edges using black ink. Then I added some stamped wording.
4. To put the card together I matted the finished picture onto some black card before mounting it onto a white card blank.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
