Hello, and welcome to my very neglected blog - thank you for visiting today.
This week is the monthly colour theme week over on the Tando Blog and today is my turn to show my ATC's for September.
I decided to create a card and coin for this month. Both basically the same techniques and colours.
Firstly, this month's colour scheme:-
Now for my artists trading card:-
I used paperartsy fresco paints for my cards this month. I painted the bases and, in my head, I envisaged a sort of crackled/weathered look for my base, but, it doesn't matter which product I use, how I use it, nothing cracks! the only way I get a crackled effect is to stamp it, but, that didn't look right! so after another failure I decided to use a baby wipe and rub most of the paint back leaving a little behind! not quite what I envisaged, but, not too bad.
If you saw the recent Hochanda shows with Di sharing the new tagged elements, you will have seen these cute birds on one of the tags - there are several different designs and all great sizes, see here. I adore these birds, so much freedom to create just what you want with no restrictions and everyone different!
So, you've seen the card, now for the coin:-
Do pop on over to the Tando blog and see what my teamies have been up to…
