So glad to be back after losing my mojo this week. I guess that happens when you are too busy.
So, today I was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast and a Placemats Pinterest board. Loved this photo with the vintage dishes in blue (of course!) and the calligraphy around the place settings.
I began by cutting two circles using Spellbinders dies to use as masks for my one-layer card front. I attached the masks using temporary adhesive for easy removal. I then sprinkled 2 shades of blue Brusho over my cardstock and sprayed with water to activate the Brusho paint crystals.
TIP: I found it was best to remove the paper mask right after spraying with water so the paint saturated mask wouldn't stain the paper underneath.
When that was all dry, I applied the negative of the circle mask and stamped the script from Penny Black over that and then added the sentiment from Stamplorations. It still felt like it needed something more so I used a pencil eraser and a lid to add some black details for interest.
That's it. Very simple but glad I could get inspired. Hope it lasts for this week!
