I am a huge admirer of Jenny , whose amazing blog can be found here and think these cards were subconsciously influenced by her effortless card making style, (think I have a way to go...but happy with these)
so here they are :
I started by applying some texture paste (studio 490 white ) to the card and then when dry set too with distress inks in frayed burlap, broken china and walnut stain. I added some ink through the stencil too..
Over the raised areas I swiped some treasure gold in white fire...
The main image is from paperboy Artistic Outpost set, love this set! Finally inked it up..more makes from this set soon.. I stamped it onto an ATC die cut using Tim holtz ATC die. I also cut the top edge using notebook on edge die.
Some inking, spritz and flick and removing colour from face using water brush finishes this make. Oh and some of the torn notebook peeping out from the image...
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz set.
I hope the boys are having a fun toy day, although know for James, it will be hard saying goodbye to his teacher who truly has gone above and beyond to look after James x
have a fun and inky day!
