Just three months ago, we moved to the Yukon! Yes, we are very far north! We spent two months in a hotel (and with three kids that was a real challenge!). I couldn't stand not to create a little something while I was there. My first couple of card posts will be the cards that I made in the hotel. I had very limited supplies, but I was able to do a lot with what I had! So, here's the first card I made. Can you tell I'm a big fan of Tim Holtz?
I layered the masks on the background paper and then sponged ink on starting with the darkest and moving to the lightest as I removed the masks. I love the results! It gives it a beautiful watercolour look! I sponged in onto the Grungeboard bird and highlighted the wings with Smooch Spritz. To make the ribbon match, I also covered that in Smooch Sprintz. To add a little extra sparkle, I sprayed Glimmer Mist on the background paper and on the belly of the bird.
