I'm sharing a card I made for a friend's birthday which is today ! I got my hands on the new set from Artistic Outpost so wanted to use them and thought this was the perfect time !
I blended DI over the background using Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Broken China. I then did the Spritz and Flick technique with lots of water, which fits with the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is water ! I used the honeycomb stamp from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media and Peacock Feathers. Then I used the text from the Artistic Outpost Paper Boy set and also the building.
The boy is stamped with black Archival ink and then I've blended more DI arond the edge. I mounted him onto a die cut using the Tim Holtz Sized Arch die which I've embossed with the Tim Holtz Bubble Texture Fade. The flower is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered flower die and I've cut several from old book pages and crinoline. I've used the mini stamp die and added some Chit Chat stickers.
I'm entering this card into the Artistic Outpost referral which is anything goes.
It sounds like it's time to batten down the hatches tonight here in the UK and snow is on it's way again ! So, another good week end to get crafty !
