Vintage Summer Basics cards

Good morning! Nadia here with you again. I hope this post finds you well.

Today I want to share with you that I created for Maja Design using the gorgeous Vintage Summer Basics collection . Earlier in the month I created a layout with this colour scheme and I REALLY loved it so I went back for more 🙂

 For both cards, I started by applying “1891” paper on the based and going over it with some white gesso lightly.

I then used HEAVY gesso and a Tim Holtz stencil to create the design on the background before  adding some Luminarte Silks Acrylic Paints and yellow inks from 13arts and Dylusions.

I cut strips of off cut paper and adhered to the base paper.


I added some raw Wycinanka chipboard and dabbed some more Silks paint on it.



 For this card, I used the same stencil with just the Dylusions yellow spray and followed the same steps as above.
