I started this card by sticking a piece of paper from the new Chatsworth papers onto some Smoothy Heavy card. I then gave it a coat of Multi Medium Matt so it would protect the paper from the paint.
I then used the Lin Brown PS004 and PS001 stencils with Snowflake Fresco Finish paint.
I dried the paint and then used Tikka and Autumn Fire Fresco Finish paint and brushed it over the top.
I then die cut some leaves from Smoothy Heavy card using the Eclectica Branch die and blended Hey Pesto, Yellow Submarine, Autumn Fire and Green Olives Fresco Finish paint over it. I then stamped the leaves from the new ELB07 set onto the card.
I used the PS004 stencil again this time for the poppy seed heads. I used a technique that Lin Brown taught in a recent class and used Chocolate Pudding first of all. Then I moved the stencil slightly and stencilled them again this time with Snowflake. Using Snowflake makes sure that the translucent colours are more vibrant. I then used Hey Pesto, Tikka and Autumn fire, dried the paint in between colours and then replaced the stencil and stamped the text through it using Mini 44. I also stamped the text without an acrylic block over the rest of the background using Archival Tree Branch.
The flowers are all made using the stamps from the ELB04 set and I've stamped them onto more Smoothy card using a mixture of Haystack, Tikka and Claret.
I hope you've enjoyed tonight's post, see you again soon.
A huge thank you to Sue from PaperArtsy HQ, this is a stunning card Sue,any Mum that receives this would absolutely love it. You have combined fabulous use of colour, and have shown not only how Lin's products all work so well together; but also how the Chatsworth papers provide a perfect base.
