It’s a card this week using some Katzelkraft stamps and a Gel Press background in lovely bright colours. The chess pieces on this stamp are beautifully drawn and I’ve teamed them up with a chequerboard stencil. You could make this in any colours – I’ve gone for a bit of a bright mixture but you can always tone it down or make it more masculine.

Travels in the Round

 I was looking through my stash the other day and found this 13Arts transparency that I’d forgotten I had. I love working with transparencies (printed acetates) as you can create so many layers. I started by working out which bit of the 12x12 sheet I wanted and then cut it to fit my round which had already been sprayed with some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Burst. 

Then I oversprayed Flat Matte Bluebell through a cog stencil. That’s 2 layers done. 

Then I added the acetate and used Posca pens to draw on some doodles using the design as a guide. The text is done with black texture paste.

Finally I painted some cogs and added silver foiling to give it a bit of oomph!
