mono printing

I had time for a little crafting over the weekend in between work shopping..cooking..cleaning and cutting the grass...and what lovely weather we have had!!! long may it last!!

I was very envious of some of my crafting pals who were able to attend Happy Stampers in Port Sunlight on Saturday...what a lovely place that is and a great show!

Leandra and Emma did a couple of quick periscope before it got busy and they were showing us a technique scraping the paint onto your surface using a scraper/old credit card or something like it.
I thought I might like to have a go....so using layers of mermaid..blue oyster..caramel..chalk..tango..beach hut and hey pesto fresco paints I made my background.

Onto this I stamped in cornflower blue archival with a crackle stamp some script and one of the small stamps from one of my new hop picks

I cut my piece up to make a background and smaller piece which I stamped in black archival again from one of the new hot picks I painted the flower and added some hightlights with a white shaprie. This was then mounted onto black card..added to the larger piece and onto a card blank.

I am going to enter this into the Paper Artsy topic 9 challenge which you can go and read all about here as usual some lovely work.

Thanks for stopping by....................................
