Tuesday Talk

The colours at Less Is More are such a striking mix that I just had to join in and play along.

I'm having a bit of a Tracey Hey fixation at the moment and used a technique I saw her demonstrate on Hochanda recently as the starting point for this card.

I masked off a bit of the card and applied the three colours required using distress ink. By starting on the mask and brushing upwards you get this fade out effect which looks so pretty. 

I removed the mask and then stamped the image and greeting on top. I used grey ink as I thought it would be less harsh than the usual black. Loving the idea of the sentiment, so relevant to our strange times when all I hear is news about keeping people and children in support bubbles.

I finished off the card by adding some fuchsia and yellow stripes to the jumper using Miya oil pencils.

Stamps: Tracey Hey, Bubblicious
Ink: SU, smoky slate, melon mambo, daffodil delight
Miya oil pencils

Thanks so much for looking today. It's been great to have your company for a while.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
