I'm just a wee bit behind on the last 2 weeks cards but for good reason. I have had a couple of quilt deadlines looming and I have been away on my own. Childless for a few whole days. Absolutely bliss!!
I have created a card this week from a cut up mono print of an orange. Mono printing is a technique of printing where paint is added to a glass surface and then a print is taken from it. The original print was white, orange and yellow. I decided to over dye it in a deep pink then to add more stitching to it and shiva paint sticks (my favourite art supply if you haven't noticed yet :) )
I was really pleased with how the over dying came out. It changed the whole feel of the piece of work.
The paint sticks have added a lovely shine to the card and given better depth.
