I have a quick post to share with you today. There was recently a new Waffle Flower release, although I didn’t have the time to take part in the celebrations due to our half term break away, Nina still kindly sent me this Biking Girls set which I fell in love with as I adore the nostalgic illustrations. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
I started these cards by stamping the images from the Biking Girls set in my favourite dye inks. One of the things I love about dye inks is that they smooth out as they soak into the paper and dry. However, that property proved tricky with these delicate illustrations as I lost the detail. So I dug around in my inks and pulled out some pigment inks. The pink and light blue are Mama Elephant – Blush and Winter respectively. Whereas the deeper blue and olive colours were very old Versa Color cubes which I’m not sure are even sold now – Celadon and Bamboo.
I trimmed the white panel to fit the width of an A2 Desert Storm card base and then added a strip of card coloured with the blue from each of the cards. I then foam mounted the panel on the kraft card base.
I’m afraid the pictures really don’t do these gorgeous illustrations justice. We are suffering a nasty snow storm at the moment. As I type this my husband has just spent 5 hours getting home when the normal journey time is 30 minutes. Although I’d like to think that the snow will be naturally bouncing the light around, I usually find it gives strange colour casts and I don’t like my pictures as much as normal. Oh well, seeing as the snow will be with us for a bit longer I’ll just have to make do! Come on spring, I really could do with you making an appearance now!
