Just A Note.....

Tonight I am sharing a project on the PaperArtsy blog.  I have used the gorgeous new Seth Apter set of Fresco Finish Chalk Paints and Lynne Perrella stamps.

I've created a set of notecards using the detailed stamps on the background as well as the main images.

I decided to create a Masterboard.  I started by lightly brayering 3 of Seth's new Fresco Finish Chalk paints onto a sheet of Smoothy card stock.  I used Butter, Magic Moss and Double Denim.

I then used Blue Lagoon and Double Denim to stamp the key and small border images across the masterboard.

I used one of the larger images as a background on my masterboard and stamped it in Magic Moss.  I used a white gel pen to highlight parts of all of the images on the board, then cut it onto 3x3 inch squares.

I stamped my focal images and coloured them using the same paints, with added Blush for the faces.  As the paints are opaque I added a tiny amount of water to ensure that you could still see the detail underneath.  These images were cut out and added to a painted 'Butter' background.

The cards were then put together.

To finish, I stamped the word 'Hello' from the Emma Godfrey Mini.

I  was really happy with how my note cards turned out.  The paints and stamps worked perfectly together.  I also had loads of the masterboard left so I can make some more cards.

I hope that I have inspired you to join in and create your own art.

Thanks for joining me this evening.....
