The first class on Friday was with Photoplay Paper and I thought it was really clever. I’d heard of Photoplay Paper earlier as I’d bought a couple of the sentiment stamp sets, but didn’t have any of the dies. And it was good to have some new and old techniques for the first class of the weekend.
Some things I loved:
- The stained glass technique of colouring on the inside of the card and having a vellum window is totally new to me, so my creative brain was stretched – and the black die cuts overlaid on the front and back of the vellum really adds to the stained glass window effect – it’s stunning in real life.
- I love irises so the colours and style really spoke to me.
- I got to pull out two inks I hadn’t tried using yet and adore the delicate die cut frames of the window.
- It’s just an all-round beautiful project!
Something I didn’t like … me being a numpty and accidentally picking up an ink pad fibre on my green tape used to hold down the stencil for ink blending so I got a random red mark on inside of the card. I’ll be keeping this one for future reference anyway, so it doesn’t matter, but if I feel strongly about it later I’ll draw over it with a white gel pen, no problem!
The inks I chose to use were:
