Fathers Day Cards by Our new Design Team Member Karen Telfer1
I made each of these Father's Day cards using a 'mono printing' technique which is so much fun. This technique can be used with children too - they will love it.
I started with an A4 sheet of Hemp cardstock and I cut another piece in half (A5). I then used a 2" dry paint brush and brushed some copper paint onto the A4 sheet. In some places I allowed the paint to be thick and dense and in other places I allowed the paint to be very thin.
I then used a variety of acrylic paint colours to paint onto the A5 sheet. In my video I have used Paperartsy paints but any acrylic paints will work). I did not wet my brush between each colour. If there was too much paint on it, I wiped it with a piece of kitchen towel. Once I had brushed a few strokes of one colour onto the A5 sheet, I then pressed it onto the A4 sheet and gently scraped my fingers along it to create intermittent patterns in the copper paint. The texture in the Hemp cardstock really helps give even more texture to the finished piece.
I continued with a different colour each time (about 13-14 layers) until you achieve the depth that you want.
I cut the die cuts from black cardstock using the Seth Apter Spellbinder dies and I printed the sentiments onto white card and mounted them.
Happy Father's Day to all the fabulous fathers in the world.
