Nog een kaart gemaakt voor de Take it Make it blog challenge van Craft Stamper: faux airbrushing. Ik vind dit zo leuk om te doen. De varkentjes stempel is van Viva Las VegaStamps. De tekst stempel weet ik niet meer. Eerst de varkentjes op een witte kaart gestempeld, daarna een masker gemaakt, de faux airbrushing techniek toegepast, mask verwijderd en de image ingekleurd met aquarelverf.

Made another card for the Take it, Make it blog challenge of Craft Stamper: faux airbrushing. I love doing this. The pigs stamp is from Viva las VegaStamps, the tekst stamp I don’t know where its from. First you stamp the image on a white card, then make a mask and put over it, for the surroundings you use the faux airbrushing technique, remove the mask and colour the image in with water colours.

step 1: cover the canvas with an extra layer of gesso. Then sponge Colorbox Crafter’s Aruba and Limon in the middle of the canvas. Take a brush and water and delute the ink so they blend.

step 2: take the brick background stamp and stamp on the right hand side, first with Limon, the left side of the stamp on the front of the canvas and the rest on the chunky side. Do the same with Aruba.

Step 3: stamp with Limon the six hexagon background on the lefthand side.

step 4: stipple with a rough sponge some accents in the white parts. Then take Colorbox Craftyer’s snow and sponge on the coloured edges (this you can;t see on the photo, but in real life the colour snow does shimmer.

step 5: Make some accent dots with Smooch Glitz Gold Rush, do the same with the hexagons. After drying make some accents with a black fine liner.

step 6: take a wooden stick and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba. Stamp with Crafter’s Snow the washi grid background. Stamp on the text make a wish with Stazon Black.

step 7: take a piece of white paper and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba, after heatsetting put on a layer of Smooch Glitz Gold Lime twiste and tear the edges.

step 8: take a piece of craft paper and sponge some Crafter’s Aruba and Limon on it. Then stamp the winged boy on it with Stazon Black. Make with a brush direct from the ink pad some colour accents. Use Smooch Glitz to highlights the circles in the image. Cut out the image.

step 9: take some leftover packaging materials, tear some strips and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba.

step 10: take a piece of ribbon (this one is a white ribbon from May Arts) and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba. Take a rbush, wet it a little and blend the colours on the ribbon. Heatset with a heat tool (or let it air dry), when dry stamp the washi lines background on the ribbon with Crafter’s Limon. Stitch on one side of the ribbon and pull the thread, it automatically forms a flower.

step 11: I used a scrap piece of paper that was protecting my desk to stamp the text pure imagination on with Stazon and cut in two. Matt this two words on black paper.

step 12: to assemble the canvas with all the different parts. First glue on the teared piece of white paper with sponged colours on. Take some of the leftover craftpaper and tear some strips, glue this on the left and right side of the first torn paper. Then glue on the wooden stick. On top of that I glued the winged boy. And on top of that the two words. Position the two pieces of scrap packeging material and glue on with glue dots. Then make a little hole in the canvas and fasten the flower with a brad. Hammer some nails in the left upper and right bottom corner.

Langs deze weg wil ik iedereen bedanken voor de lieve comments, mailtjes en kaarten naar aanleiding van het overlijden van mijn vader. Mijn hoofd en mijn hart lopen nog steeds niet een gelijke tred, en hoewel we een prachtig afscheid hebben gehad, en mijn hoofd zegt: het is goed zo, is mijn hart nog steeds bij het telefoontje, de schok en ongeloof, het voelt nog steeds heel onwerkelijk aan. Dank jullie wel voor alle troost die jullie hebben geboden.

I want to thank each and every one of you for all the sweet comments, e-mails and cards I received after my dad passed away. My head and heart are not on the same level yet, I know we have to go on without him and we had a beautiful saying goodbye, but my heart is still with the message that he passed away, still feeling shocked and in disbelieve, it still feels so unreal. thank you so much for all you comfort.
