On to new things

Hi there!

I started this project for the craft barn by applying strips of random Washi tape on to a piece of white card.

 I gave it a coating in Nougat fresco paint, followed by some jade paint.
 I added water and wiped back some of the jade fresco paint to keep it light and textured.

 Using more fresco paints as an ink, I stamped the IO clouds stamp.
 The archival ink used here is permanent and perfect for stamping over shinier surfaces like that of the Washi tape.
 I ended up using three of the four colours in the new archival mini set one.
 I wanted a bit more texture so I used a set of nesting circle dies to create rings.
 Then on a spare piece of paper I stamped the air balloon again, cut it out and mounted using lots of 3d foam pads.
 Next I used dies to cut out the lettering I wanted...
 and spritzed with colour bloom for a shimmery, textured finish.
 I added the lettering and highlighted it using fineliner, then popped a border around the edge to finish.
