Together by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone
I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend, for those of us in the UK the weather
was shocking so hopefully a great excuse for some crafty play. My crafty play
for you this week is a card.







Here’s what I did:-


I never seem to be able to throw anything away and have a large box that I just throw allsorts of bits into. The bit that I pulled out of my box was a piece of card that I had used to clean a brayer and paint brushes off on after having used acrylic paints. I liked the colour combination on the scrap. I wanted to stamp on to it using the large A5 Carabelle stamp but as I only had enough of the card for one attempt for a clean perfect stamp of the image I didn’t want to chance it. So to get my image right I first stamped it onto a piece of tissue paper, the tissue paper always takes the image brilliantly and gives a sharp stamped image. I then layered the stamped tissue over the painted background applying it with matte medium. The tissue over the painted background also gives you a lovely soft colour. I then die cut the scribbly heart from pink card and mounted a Chit Chat Sticker onto black card and added to the card with 3d gel to raise it off the card.






Matted onto black card and then added to an 8” x 8” card blank.



What I Used:-


Scrap acrylic painted card piece – PaperArtsy Fresco Paints
Sizzix Bigshot Plus (best A4 machine in my opinion)
Pink Card
Photo Glue
Card Blank

Have a fabulous week and I’ll see you next week

Love
Amanda X
