Hello, friends. It's number 2 of the 21 cards challenge from Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art.
I started this card the same as card #1, described here. This is the back side of card #1. I decided to make art on both sides. I guess that's the frugal part of me at work. I really hate to waste things.
For the background, I applied yellow acrylic paint with my fingers. When that was dry, I used a die cut (Spellbinders Lotus Pendant die) as a stencil and applied orange and red paint with a makeup sponge. I dragged the red out farther to overlap some of the orange.
I then used stamps from Gina K and Inkadinkado along the edges with jet black archival ink. There are also some very light circles where I applied ink with the plastic insert from a roll of tape. It wasn't as effective as I anticipated. I think paint would have given a bolder circle.
Since I'm really trying to stretch myself, especially with my art, I added the sentiment, 'Be Bold' with a combination of black Sharpie and Copic marker. I needed the flexible brush tip on the Copic marker to smooth over the background texture.
This card is very different than what I normally create, so I guess the stretching must be working.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
