I have another really bright card to share with you today using some Home Made paper.
Yes I’m Using it UP! I’m also using the Mojo Monday Sketch #229 for the layout.
This paper was made in a creative moment at Trish’s place last summer, with her and her daughter. I can’t remember the exact process, but I do know we used oil paints floated on a white spirit of some sort (perhaps mineral turpentine?) and dropped the cardstock onto the patterns created by swirling drops of the paints together. Looks fantastic doesn’t it?
I have also embossed the whole background with a swirly embossing folder and swiped it with ink. I was inspired to do this by the inspiration photo at 4 Crafty Chicks , check out the ceiling of the room in the photo…
I have used Monkey B, which was a Freebie from Dustin Pike quite some time ago and I’ve coloured him with copic pens and a little glitter glue. Gotta have sparkle somewhere!
The ribbon is from Kaiser Craft and the sentiment is a Stampin Up
sentiment from the set ‘So Many Sayings’.
I’ll be entering the following challenges with him :-
