It’s not that bad!

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a masculine card project with you all!

I started my project by stamping some images from the Art Impressions “Old Goat Set” onto Clairefontaine Paint-On Recycle paper (green logo) using a juicy black ink and heat embossing directly afterwards using a clear embossing powder. This paper is not as good as the Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper but when I work it a little bit more I can create results that I like (I would not recommend this paper for beginner water marker artists though).

Now I can colour the image and today I’m using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers in combination with a water brush. I’m using the following colour markers: Flint, Tawny, Chestnut, Chocolate, Topaz, Peach, Flame Red, Sepia, Kingfisher and Navy. After the colouring is done and dry I’m adding back in some details using a white gel pen and I’m fussy cutting the images using my scissors and leaving a small border.

Now that my focal point is ready I can work on my background: for this I’m die cutting a square panel two sizes smaller than my card base from design paper from my stash. Onto this panel I stamp my sentiment (form the same AI stamp set) using black ink, and also the Kaisercraft “Hessian” design using a Distress Ink in “Chipped Sapphire”, finishing the background by creating some splatters using the Coliro Pearl Color in “Tibet Gold” in combination with a brush.

Time to put my card together: for this I die cut a slightly larger square panel from deep red card stock and I adhered both square panels together using a liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto my white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut images on top using one millimetre thick foam tape and liquid glue.

And that is it for today’s masculine card project! I wish you a creative day!
