This card started life as a bit of fun background building, messing about with hearts and dots. I tried a bit of generation stamping with the hearts, misting the dot fade stencil, using gelatos on the stencil, using gelatos with the dauber and flicking the solution from the stippling brush. Flicking was my favourite, even if it was a tad messy!
Once I had the background stamped I really wanted to use it as a one-layer CAS card. I covered a small area with gesso and stamped the post box. I used some more gesso under the letter but didn't want to wait for it to dry so I used my heat gun for added texture (My story and I'm sticking to it!). I coloured the image with the gelato/mist solution adding more colour or black ink as required.
This was a lot of fun and I hope to find more time to experiment with all the textures.
