Live The Life You've Imagined by Alison Hall

Hi Everyone! I'm getting organised with birthday cards for January, and this one is for my teenage nephew. I find cards for boys a bit tricky, but Tim Holtz's stamps came to my rescue!



PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint - Blue Oyster, London Bus
6x6 inch White Card Blank
Large Bubble Wrap



1. I created a print, using my Gelli Plate, the Blue Oyster paint, and a bit of corrugated card for the pattern. I painted a piece of large bubble wrap with London Bus Fresco, then stamped it on the print to add some contrast colour.

2. I used the black archival ink to first stamp the diamonds, then the umbrella man and the quote, then I filled in some gaps with the messy circles.

3. To finish, I mounted my artwork onto black card, then attached it to the card blank. 

A very simple card! All I need to do now, is to pop some money in and send it off!


Wishing you all a very happy and creative 2016!
