Techniques group - 9th February 2019

We will be doing 5 projects at the techniques class, all of which can be made into cards by using them as toppers.

Card 1

  • Put the aperture mask onto the piece of card.
  • Place the wavy line mask across the centre of the aperture.
  • Place the sun in the sky where you want it to be.
  • Using the inks and the daubers, colour the sky, putting some yellow around the sun and blending up to it with blue.
  • Remove the sun mask and lightly colour it.
  • Remove the wavy line mask and stamp your hills and trees over the edge of it.
  • Using wavy line mask, create lines across the bottom half of the aperture using pale blue ink. Make sure that you ink round the bottom half of the aperture.
  • Stamp tree onto right hand side and animals in centre.
  • Using the clear glitter brush pen, add some “Z” strokes across the landscape.
  • Remove the aperture mask and stamp the sentiment underneath the circle.

Card 2
  • Stamp the jar onto the card, and also onto the yellow post it paper.
  • Cut out the parts that you want to see through and put the mask over the stamped image on the card.
  • Stamp the bunch of flowers and stamp it onto the card over the top of the jar, so that the stems appear to be in the water.
  • Remove the mask.
  • Using coloured pencils, colour in the image.
  • Colour the water a very faint blue and go over with glitter brush pen.

Tag 3
  • Using the distress inks, apply colour randomly to the tag.
  • Spritz with water and dry.
  • Using stencil, add ink where required and dry.
  • Stamp leaves in greens on corners.
  • Stamp writing in brown across centre.
  • Make sure everything is dry, and then stamp wreath and sentiment using versamark.
  • Emboss using gold powder.
  • Go around the edge with gold gilding wax.

Paper 4
  •  Apply a water wash with a big brush over the whole card.
  • Using watercolour inks, apply colours randomly
  • Spritz with water and dab with kitchen roll.
  • Sprinkle brusho powders of choice onto surface of card and spritz again until effect you want is achieved.
  • Make sure the card is dry and then stamp the flowers in versamark ink where required and emboss with gold powder.
  • Take some ink and the pearlescent paint and using a paintbrush, splat it onto the card. Allow to dry.
  • This can now be used as background paper, or can be diecut.

Card 5
  • Take the yellow post it paper and tear off a strip as long as the card is wide.
  • Cut it in half lengthways.
  • Make sure that the straight edges are in the middle and apply across the card, leaving a stripe across the centre.
