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....................................


  1. Love this! Weather is on the turn...

  2. Ooh Lin this is gorgeous! Love how you have run with this technique. It was the only demo I actually watched & concentrated on.....my stupid early wake up played havoc with concentration!

    Someone is going to be a happy bunny to receive this.
