Good morning everyone.
Another day another share :)
Today I have combined 2 very beautiful collections from 2 manufacturers , Maja Design and Manor House Creations to create a set of cards in a bit of a neutral tone just for a bit of a break from all the colour I have been experimenting with lately.
I used the GORGEOUS "Ska vi ta en Fika?" collection from Maja Design together with some Blossoms and Roses from Manor House Creations.
The Ska vi ta en Fika collection is available at The Flying Unicorn HERE and The Flying Unicorn carries a lof of Manor House Creations flowers HERE too!
Here are my 2 cards
I picked the darkest colour of the collection, which is almost a dark purple but appears even close to a grey in real life too. The dark base paper of my first card is the "Våffla m björnbärssylt" paper while the lighter heart paper of my second card is the "Plommonkaka" paper.
To start with I applied CLEAR gesso on both my cards because I wanted a non porous surface that still showed the background paper clearly.
Now I will show you some close ups of both the cards as I applied the same techniques to both...
I applied THICK white gesso down the center of both the cards in a T design. Once that dried up, I applied a few strips of contrasting paper in a + design together with some tissue paper.
I then stamped a number stamp on the background and I also stamped a circle stamp which I coloured in with Gelatos and Faber Castell Big Brush pens.
Then, as you can see in the image above, I layers some chipboard, mesh tape and die cuts on top of that.
I then added some Manor House Creations flowers on top and softened their look a bit by applying some silver ink on top of the black ones.
Lastly, I applied a a silver mist and a silver ink directly on the background to create some colour.
