These three little retro ladies have a message for you all......that's right let the dust settle, the cobwebs hang, the washing basket overflow.....instead craft.
To create them I tried a few new techniques out. First I swirled three of Tim Holtz distress inks onto a non-stick baking sheet and spritzed with water. I then swished over some plain scrap card and dried it with my heat gun. I then stamped a swirl pattern using a bleach. Pour a small amount of thin bleach into a flat container and then layer a few sheets of paper towel over it, to suck up the excess bleach. Dip your stamp into it and then stamp randomly over the card. The bleach will immediately fade the ink where you have stamped. You can then either leave to dry or heat with a heat gun. Cut out ATC sized cards. I then cut out the pictures from an old calender and stuck them down using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium Matte Gel. Wow this stuff is fantastic, it was thin enough to paint onto the back of the pictures but stuck them down quickly and firmly. Then you can use it as a waterproof sealer. I love the matte finish and it was dry within minutes. Finally i added the dynamo message.
I for one will be heeding the message.......until the teen asks if there are any clean pants!
