Day 1 of my week off work and I am pleased to report that I have hardly left my craftroom (bliss!) other than to make some spicy lentil and chickpea soup and talk crafty things on the phone to my bestest crafty friend.
I had a morning of gelli printing but those will probably appear later in the week and an afternoon of at last playing with Spectrum Noir Aquatints, which I have had for months and never used. I had bought 2 boxes (12 bottles in total) Beautifully Grunge and Perfectly Primary.
I set about making an ombre background with them using colours from both sets.
I turned my backgrounds into these 2 cards
A black card blank on a black background to photograph probably not my greatest idea!
All stamps are from Carabelle apart from the sentiment which is Artistic Outpost. The leaves have been stamped onto scraps from today's gelli plate outing.
Text has been highlighted white with a white prismacolour pencil.
and the 2nd card also using Carabelle Stamps apart from the sentiment which is Tims Holtz.
Highlights done with white gel pen.
I have to say I have had fun with the Aquatints and I like the effect, need to play some more now and would also like the pastel set.
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you doing so and please feel free to leave a comment.
See you soon
