52 cafe card week two... B is for Bubbles
For this one I added an extra thick later of gesso and purposely painted it on in waves and ridges. I used a teal acrylic and then a turquoise dylusions spray over the top.
Once this was dry I stamped the rising bubbles (by Ryn) using archival ink direct to the card...and I also stamped the interconnecting circles (by VLVS) onto textured paper and coloured them with watered down acrylics and then used alcohol markers over the top of a few of them... Once dry I cut them out and adhered them to the card with matt medium. I stamped the wording and then added some glossy crackle medium to a select few circles. I dry brushed the edges with darker blue acrylic to finish it off.
I do find working on such a small scale quite a challenge but I am enjoying it so far.
Until next time, take care
