Astrid is over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week requesting the use of neon colors. While it's not typical to use neon in my images, I do like to use it to add a punch in my backgrounds.
This cards features "Peace and Love" from artist Kate Crane.
I hand wrote one of my favorite quotes with black gel pen, accented with white Signo. The top and bottom of the card has my homemade washi tape.
I had made a pile of gelli prints and the back of this card is made from the "waste" roll-out paint in-between prints. While I had the colors out I also created very fast and funky washi tape using Micropore surgical tape.
Here is a quick tutorial.
Micropore surgical tape, assorted acrylic paints, sheet of glass, Stampotique texture and text stamps, Stazon black pad, shiny paper (freezer paper will work)
- Apply strips of tape to glass
- Select about three colors and smear on tape with fingertip. Dry.
- Stamp randomly.
- Accent with white paint
- Store on freezer paper or other shiny paper.
- Use on future projects.
