Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and today I am using the fabulous Springtime stamp set once again.
I cut a piece of card 5" x 5", spritzed with water and then brayered over the surface lightly with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint. I then ran my brayer through a small amount of Fired Brick Distress Paint and brayered lightly over the card, making sure both layers are still visible.
I then added a further layer, applying Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink through a stencil and a few touches of the same stencilling but with Black Soot Distress Ink. I stamped the two children onto the card with Black Archival Ink and then stamped them a second time onto a separate piece of card, cut them out and then added to the card, this gives a shadow to the image by stamping the image in the background first.
I thought the 'Friendship' sentiment from the Skating Emporium stamp set was perfect for this card. I also added a few delicate splatters of Fired Brick Distress Paint for added interest.
I coloured their faces with a Distress Marker and added a few more splatters.
I also included some stamping and stencilling to the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
