Index cards 5 and 6
I completed two Index cards today, I started them off yesterday and finished them this morning. I have been following Mixed Media Morsels tutorials so I started these with a layer of tissue paper. Not having any tissue paper I used a sewing pattern, so there was some lines and wording on it. You simple paint a background, let it dry, then add glue and loosely lay the tissue paper on it. Using your finger to gently increase the folds.
That was that bit done, but I do like to keep going until I'm happy!
On one card I did a background by doodling with a pencil and then filling in the shapes with watercolour. It was Okay but..... So then I put a layer of tissue paper over it, ran an ink pad over it, still not happy, I thought I could see a fish in there. I painted a dark blue around the fish "shape" - ugh! (no picture for that) I noticed the tissue paper had lifted along the side so I ripped it off, leaving my original coloured-in background - actually I was amazed it came off cleanly.
I added another layer of tissue pattern paper then I added a layer of paper napkin. These mice are so adorable :) Finally I added white to the mice and the daisies, a little bit of outlining and - Happiness :)
I am going to post my mice card at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge (anything goes)
Keep on crafting :)
