Well it is March 1st today -
time continues to fly by
at an alarming rate........
......that means we are all
Angela Radford is with us
today to start the new theme
with a fantastic card for
the star in your life......
"Hi all, I'm back to show you what I've been up to
with these gorgeous Seth Apter stamps.
To start the Masterboard for this project I began
by brayering paint onto an A3 sheet of card.
You can see from this photo that you must be prepared
to make some mess so make sure you have your
workplace well protected.....or is it just me that's messy!?
I continued to apply the paint until satisfied with the coverage.
I used a set designed by PaperArtsy for Seth Apter.
I also mixed some of these colours to increase the range available
Next I started stamping.
It's important when stamping with acrylics to
spread the paint evenly across the palette otherwise
it will be too thick and you will not get a clear image
More stamping fun and here we are with the completed Masterboard.
When I do projects like this I hate wasting the paint
and I found myself with too much of the Mahogany
on my palette so thought I would stamp it
onto a clean sheet of card........
well this just changed my original idea for this card!
So to put all this together I began by creating a
Cut all the pieces to size including some
deep red card for matting and we're ready to go!
Started layering the pieces together, not bad for some waste paint!
I completed this by adding some red brad stars
from my stash and the TIME AFTER TIME stamp image
from the same Seth Apter set.
The sentiment is by Tim Holtz stamped with Mahogany distress ink.
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this card.
Happy crafting, Angela"
Yes, we did enjoy you making this card Angela
Just love it when you show us your change of
mind and the thought process behind it - just
goes to show there is no need to waste a thing
