I can't wait to show you these background I made.
I love making cards but I don't like to make them so three dimensional that it costs more to the mail them.
Using Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso and Acrylic Inks I created really cool textured backgrounds in some fun colors.
I don't have step by step pictures because I was playing and didn't know if it would work.
I cut mixed media paper to fit the front of the card.
I added the Believe Script stencil to the background with black acrylic paint.
Using a texture tool I spread super heavy gesso on the card and while it was still wet I dropped paint on and let it do it's thing.
Here is a close up.
On each card I added:
The Raven I stamped on mixed media paper, cut it out, used paint to add color and to add something different I used TCW stencils (sorry don't remember which stencils I used) to add designs to each bird. I used a stamp from Red Lead Paperworks called Scary Stories with black archival ink and cut out the words and attached them to the card.
This one I dropped the inks and used the texture tool though the gesso.
This picture shows you the super heavy gesso still wet with inks.
If I remember I sprayed this with water to see what would happen.
They were so much fun to create.
Not at all my spooky colors I like to use.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
