A Ray Of Sunshine #3

Hello bloggers! Today I want to share with you a card that Franca Marzi created using two of Christy Hartman's clear stamps. She used the Erik Spring Time Jump For Joy & "Your a ray of sunshine" stamps to create this card. Below she tells you what she used to create this piece. Isn't it adorable! Thank you Franca!

Before  I do anything I color or paint I add 2  coat of Gesso, Paste on  the left  top  some of the crumpled paper ,then  paint  with acrylic colors Deco Art, Indian  Turquoise and  Deep and M. Blue. Start  with DMB from  the bottom up  get to about half and then with the dirty brush take Indian T. and continue with this color to the rest of the card.   Wash on the upper part with D.M.B.  immediately spray alcohol and dry, repeat across the card with different colors. Past  paper stamped  sheet music, paint around with the same color of card.   Stamp with appropriate stamps, some in black other in white. Design something. Stamp the boy , do one coat  gesso then paint with colors you like. For show up the boy, shade  around with Prussian Blue . Paint the sun with your finger and Golden Straw, shade with Persimmon and Highlight with Warm White on the top, Line work  with a double line with a pen. Stamp the sentiment with black ink.

I love the vintage look & the colors she used!

Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy your day!
