You Can Shake The World by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I hope this Tuesday finds you all well.

I have quite a quick make for you this week as work is manic at the moment and the week has just flown by.

Here's What I Did:

This stencilled piece of card has been hanging around for ages as it ended up being to small for what I wanted it for, so it went in my "It'll come in at sometime box". I originally created it by cleaning paint off the round blending tool, which is how the circles of colour were created, I then stencilled over the top using black Archival ink using a blending tool again. I thought it would work if I cut it into 3 strips to make up an abstract design on the card. 

Onto each Strip, using the Stamping Platform, I stamped one of Tracy Scotts stamps designed for PaperArtsy, painted in the parts I wanted white and then stamped the image again which neatens up the paint lines all the time leaving the strip in position on the Stamping Platform. 

I then edged each strip with a black sharpie pen to avoid a white edge and stuck it onto white card at irregular heights. I then stamped the sentiment. This was then laid on black card and added to a card blank.

Here's What I Used:

Have a fabulous week and enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend, see you all next Tuesday

  1. You never cease to amaze me Amanda how you can create something so bold and vivid with such ease, I would have been adding a little here and another bit there to get that amount of colour into that space. Fabulous eye for colour, design and technique. Sublime in every way.
