I loved Wanda's take on this canvas, so I altered just a bit to make a card. I also changed the colours and used Fresco paints, Dolly Mix, Candy Floss, Spanish Mulberry and a little bit of Chalk, also a spot of mixing of colours, as you do.I used Darcy's stamps EDY10, I love this stamp set and used it quite a lot. Finally I added Liquid Pearls Petal Pink and a piece of ribbon from the stash!!!
Thanks for looking.

I was inspired to have a go at making this lovely bow, I almost followed Darcy's instructions on the Paperartsy website, so have a look there to see how to make the blue bow, which is made from copy paper, paint, I used Turguoise, Dusty Teal, Hint of Mint and Pewter, also some stencilling and stamping.
In the second picture I decided to try making the bows in different weights and types of card and paper, all reasonably successful, but I do think you need a lightweight paper/card which is double sided.
Thank you for looking at my blog.
So here are a few bows, the original idea came from a post by Darcy on the Paperartsy Blog, more about this on another post. I did one, bottom left, made from copy paper and painted, stencilled and stamped. The others are all made from different types of card and paper.
I think they are better made from card/paper that is double sided, but this does not need to be very thick I think the maximum weight paper/card would be 120 gsm, the thicker card it is much harder to fold and stick.

So how did I achieve the above, I stamped one of my favourite Darcy stamps on to a tile in Archival Ink and coloured using Fresco paints.Left to dry and then added a layer of Fresco Gloss Finish and a touch of Treasure Gold around the edges. Really pleased with the effect thanks Wanda and Paperartsy.

I love Jo Firth Young's stamps and her idea of making a stamping masterboard and cutting up to make cards etc. For this one I did one on white card and one a kraft card and coloured with intense pencils, then cut up to make cards, I got three cards from each board and was very pleased with the effect.Thanks for the inspiration Jo.

I tried to use as many of the techniques as possible and I am pleaed with the results.
Oh dear I so ran out of time last week, these are the cards I made for one of the challenges on the Paperartsy Blog but did not have time to photograph or blog so I am on catch up this week. They are very simple just kraft card and archival ink. All the stamps are from Paperartsy. So hope you like and thanks for looking.
