Acrylic Paint Backgrounds- Tracy Evans

Hi Everyone, I was watching a Tracy Evans video which had a Gesso Resist background and thought I would play a little.
My first card was inspired by the gesso resist but other than the colour and the gesso is very different to Tracy's, the second is a brayered background and Tracy's Hare stamp.

Card 1 I brayered gesso over the card then brayered the yellow and a turquoise acrylic paint. I then used one of Tracy's stamps to stamp the background using a MISTI and re stamped and fussy cut the butterfly wing and the postage stamps after pre colouring with pencils.

Card 2 - I brayered pink and blue on a piece of 110lb white card and then using the MISTI stamped the Hare. I re stamped the Hare on another piece of card coloured it with pencils and fussy cut it out and stuck it to the acrylic paint brayered card. I love the colours on this one.

Green and Gold

Hi Everyone, I'm playing with a new 3D embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp  and some of my Magenta stamps.

I started by blending some distress oxide inks on a piece of card stock, when it was dry I embossed it with the Seed head embossing folder.  I lightly brushed a white ink pad over the seed head portion of the image and also added extra white acrylic paint from my posca pen to the ends, the stems and leaves were coloured with Alcohol pens and also a gold glitter pen.I randomly stamped a script (Old Script) image around the embossed area  and used crackle paste randomly through a stencil (Magenta Crazy Texture MC49). The crackle paste was spritzed with Bright Green Nuance powder mixed with water.

You can see the sparkle from the gold glitter pen in this image.

I'm  entering this for the following challenges.
