JOFY Stamps/Tracy Scott Paints by Nikki Acton


Hi everyone. A little change of style from me today! I recently bought the new special edition Tracy Scott PaperArtsy Fresco paints so decided to have a play. A friend also lent me some older JOFY stamps – so I have combined the two to make a few cards.

I started with some backgrounds using Prawn, Butternut, Tangerine Twist and Chalk Fresco paints.  Some swiping with a credit card – building up layers, another background using a paint brush and one spritzing the leftover paint and building up a splattered background.

Next I started stamping, cutting and punching – I used the flowers and butterfly from JOFY 32. The cut out flowers are mounted on kraft card that I have added some gesso to. I use an acrylic block for this – paint it with white gesso, turn it over and lay on the card. I love this effect.


I had lots of my backgrounds left – so made a couple of other cards too. The swirls are from Tracy Scott’s stamp sets – ETS01 and ETS08. A little bit of doodling with black and white paint or gel pens adds some highlights where needed. The birthday greeting is from my stash. 

See you next week!
