All Things Bright......... And Beautiful Card by Debs

Hi All

Here is my latest creation for this months challenge, I had a bit of fun with this one.  Thought i would put a slightly different take on the theme.

The background is nice and bright and then the subtle black and white of the Gibson Girl stamp from the Gibson Girls plate 1 represents the beautiful.

I covered a sheet of patterned paper with gesso covering pretty much the whole sheet (a great way to use up paper scraps or pages that you don't use for other things.

Then i scribbled some distress crayons over the gesso (they work best over gesso, as they move more freely)  Then i added a tiny a bit of water using my finger and blended the colours together.  Then once happy out came the stencils i used chevrons, random dots and honeycomb and the dylusions paints and with a sponge added stencilling over the top

It doesn't look great here but the more you add the better it looks

I used crushed grape and vibrant turquoise Dyslusion Paint, applying it through the stencil with a sponge  this way you don't get big blobs of paint  I did the same with a smaller piece of card for the backing of the embellished image

Added some white pen to make it all pop, wrapped some fibres around the piece of paper and using foam tape stuck the background to a card and then mounted a piece of black card the extra coloured piece and the stamped image onto the top.

I hope this has given you some inspiration and i shall look forward to seeing your projects added to the blog and Facebook as you do them.

Happy crafting
