I said in an earlier post here that creating scripture cards is really fun and totally addictive! I thought I would combine a couple of creative challenges to do these: the February challenge at PaperArtsy is paint and at Craft Stamper its stencilling, two of my very favourite things right now and even more when combined. Here they all are together. I am going to mount them on black and make them into a devotional minibook.
I started off with my favourite kind of backround at the moment, paint brayered in different shades on an A4 sheet of card, and cut it into 8 cards.
Then I realised I wouldn't need so many of the cards so stuck three of them together and trimmed to make two bookmarks. I added some stamping and then my home made texture paste through stencils. I mounted the bookmarks on black cardstock and finished them with the ribbon and verses.
I love using texture paste through a stencil and since I make my own its very cheap so I use it with abandon!
Adding the initial paint with a brayer gives a lovely interesting backround to start off with. Then I had fun with stencils and stamps, keeping to the same backround colours, black and white:
Here I've added some splatters, although I had a bit too much water on the paintbrush so they have not come out as white as I wanted:
I love the texture that stamping with acrylic paint on foam stamps gives, so this circle stamp is a great favourite.
The verses were typed on the computer and printed out but they are too thin to cut with my guillotine and I just can't cut straight with a scissors so they are all a bit wonky:
I couldn't stop at four cards! Here is the last one:
