Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. So pleased you dropped by.
I have been playing with my Lindy's Magicals again and, this time, created a couple of clean and simple cards.
I've actually been getting into a bit of a rut with my cards. They were all starting to look the same to me so, I thought I would try something a little different.
No background papers on these two, just some magicals and texture paste.
As you can see, both cards are pretty much the same with only a few, slight differences.
This card measures 4" x 6" and the Magicals colour I used is Danny Zuko's Denim.
I used removable masking tape to mask off the area I wanted to colour, wet the paper and then dropped some of the powder onto it.
You get such a great effect with the magicals and, although the texture paste ran under the stencil a little, I love how it soaked up some of the colour. It is possible that I didn't dry the magicals properly but, as I said, I like the effect.
A piece of gauze under the flowers for some soft texture and then plenty of prills and some micro beads for extra effect. I saw this combination on Tracey Sabella's blog and really loved how it looked so thought I'd try it out .. Love it even more now!
My second card measures 3.75" x 7" and the colour I used here is Greased Lightnin' Green.
The little medallion shape was made with a glue gun, some Mod Melts and a silicon mould. I sprayed it with the same Magicals for a bit of added colour.
I dabbed the gauze on both cards with gesso just to give it a bit more structure.
I didn't pre-mix the Magicals. I simply wet the watercolour paper and then picked up a small amount of the powder on a paint brush and simply flicked it onto the page. To spread the colour a bit more I sprayed again with a bit more water and this was the result. I love how you get so many different shades just from the one colour .. awesome!
Lots of prills again.
.. and a final look at both cards together.
Unfortunately my stamping is not as sharp as I would have liked and the texture paste bled a bit under the stencil but, all in all, I am really happy with the way these turned out. They are certainly different from what I usually do and, I think, that's a good thing.
I apologise for the long post but I felt that these two cards needed to be shown together. So glad that you made it to the end.
Thank you so much for popping in and taking a look .. I do hope you enjoyed the visit.
Have yourselves a wonderful day!!
Take care and God Bless.
