Do I Look Like I Care? by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone
I have a card for you today using some of the new Dylusions stamps.


Here’s What I Did:-


All this has first been created on a piece of mixed media card to allow several different mediums to be used without damaging or warping the paper. Fabulous stuff.

I first applied a gentle misting of water and then applied a small sprinkle of Brusho Crystals, a little goes a long way. As I am impatient I dried it off with a heat gun. I then added detail with contrasting paints through 2 different stencils. On a separate piece of mixed media paper I stamped my images with black Archival ink. I gave the ink a quick blast with the heat gun prior to colouring them in. The image has been coloured with blendable coloured pencils, blending solution and paper stumps. It’s all about layering up the colours with light strokes in order that you can lay and blend different colours together, this part I find extremely therapeutic.

Once I was happy with my images I cut them out. My sentiment was stamped on the same mixed media card and cut out.

I then glued my cut outs to my background with 3D gel glue to make him stand off the card.

It was then mounted onto navy card and then an 8” x 8” card blank.


What I used:-

Brusho’s – Prussian Blue & Orange
Adirondack Denim Paint Dabber
Coloured using Polychromos Pencils – Spectrum Noir pencils blend in the same way which I also use
Dylusions Stamps used:- “ How about Never”
                                     “The Fancy Four”
                                     “Legs Eleven” from my stamp stash

Hope you like it and see you next Tuesday
