Dipping My Toes
My creative output of late has not been prolific, to say the least. However, after spending a few hours mucking about, I ended up with one solitary card.
Okay, not quite true, as the majority of the play was in making colourful backgrounds onto various pieces of card, using Ken Oliver's Colour Burst Powders.
Once I had a selection, I cut out the shapes using a Spellbinders Die, Contemporary Circles. I took a separate piece of card and sponged over yellow and orange distress inks, adding texture with stencils. Finally, I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment using black Archival ink.
So yes, I can say I've dipped my toes into making inkier, artier projects. I haven't quite abandoned the clean and graphic style, though. It's a start. I have plenty of coloured card and offcuts leftover. Enough to make at least one other card.
