Deal in place — ordered and finally received clear and white gesso and my reward is one fabulous butterfly stencil by our Bonnie. As you buddies know, Bonnie makes the most outstanding backgrounds and mixed media concept cards. I’m not sure if the mixed media will fit me but I do love butterflies. Thank you Bonnie. I’ll be searching your blog and other YouTube videos on what to do with this new to me product. So I taped off all but three butterflies from the stencil and spread on some white gesso. After drying and taping off the two thirds of the card, I used direct ink to paper to create the background. The inks used were GKD’s Key Lime, Ocean Mist and Memento’s Lady Bug. The color challenge PP490 at The Paper Players is to incorporate Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Pool Party.
The AAA Cards clean and simple challenges CAS Game #165 is Up to One Third + optional twist A Repeating Image which is where my three butterflies comes in. Although it’s not the same butterfly there are three.
I used Bonnie’s suggestion of text vellum (not sure if I have the same weight) and then spread some clear gesso over that…..just for good measure!! Oops almost forgot the sentiment is from GKD’s The Giving Tree. Now h ave a great day. Stay Safe.
