All The Stamps are from Klimt PlateCP001
Morning all, Mark here and with the holiday season approaching even I am going to need some cards, but I will be keeping it non traditional as always ;)
I have used a couple of mixed media boards, I love this alternative to the standard craft card substrate, it just opens up so many more options for creating and using mediums like paints where normal card will just warp.
I have used Decoart Media Fluids for my back ground and just applied the paint with my finger blending colours as I went along. Using your fingers really allows you to work the paint out really thin so the drying time is almost instant allowing you to work colours quickly and to get a nice feathered look to the blending.
I love the quirky abstract nature of the Gustav Klimt images and like how the colour brings out the nature of the stamp but the blues add a hint of sadness to the image.
I punched a couple of holes and added eyelets to both media boards and tied them together with a thin piece of leather cord.
The boards have been sealed with Satin Varnish to protect and to bring out the colours. It's all set for the message to be written with a fine white paint pen.
As always a great big Thanks for stopping by xx.
