The Craft's Meow Blog hop!

Hello and welcome to The Craft's Meow Blog Hop.

the craft's meow.

If you are here from  Deborah"s Blog, then you are on the right track.

This month's theme is Summer! I have chosen Life is a Carnival Stamp Set to make my project.
I have also done a mixed media card. Here is my card.

TCM Blog Hop

I first white heat embossed the ferris wheel on the watercoloured paper. On the misted watercoloured paper, I have applied blue and pink acrylic paints. Then rubbed a thin layer of  gesso as I did not want the intense colours of blue and pink. Once dried, I applied green gelato. Another layer of gesso over the green gelato to tone it down. Then used the round paint stamp from Typically Teen stamp set and stamped in cluster of three using Butter Bar and Soft Granite Hero Arts Ink. Another thin layer of gesso. Then stamped the ticket stamp vertically using soft granite ink. Coloured the baskets of the ferris wheel with gelatos. Then stamped the sentiment over which there is a very thin layer of gesso. Lastly, I rubbed some glue and added glitter. Finally accented with enamel dots. I then mounted this on the card front using foam adhesives.

Here is the closeup of the card.
