Softly, Softly by Helen Chilton


Today I've made a card using some of the new Craft O'Clock products:

When I saw the tracing paper designs, I thought I just had to have a go, so picked this one with the lady on.

I cut round her profile and then used some of the  Hazy Street paper with a light area in the middle.

To start with, I coloured straight onto the back...

...and then softened it with a baby wipe:

The colours will show through to the front.

Then just stick it down with a glue stick.

To match up the colours, I added some pen ro rhe paper, rubbing it on a baby wipe again...

...and then rubbing direct to paper to create a soft effect.

You can also colour on top of the tracing paper.

To finish I highlighted with white pen and added a touch of white stencilling.

Don't use anything too wet on the tracing paper as it buckles - this is why I used a 'dry' glue and made sure I covered the back well so there were no air bubbles. Each piece of tracing paper has a different design so there's loads of inspiration! Until next week!
