What began as 3 pieces of junk mail, ended up as 3 pieces of Valentine’s Day happy mail.
Note: I am a Design Team member for The Crafter’s Workshop; however, even though I use and love their products, all opinions are solely my own.
TCW9006 Gloss Gel Medium, TCW9001 White Gesso,
TCW9007 Clear Gesso
TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet, TCW9016 Spun Sugar,
TCW9015 Black Licorice
TCW737 Love Sonnet 12” x 12” & 6” x 6”,
TCW754 Distressed Details 6” x 6”
To begin, I applied Gloss Gel Medium to both sides of the postcards to adhere dictionary pages. Once dry, I painted on a light coat of White Gesso on both sides.
To get a beautiful light pink color, I mixed Raspberry Sorbet with Spun Sugar.
I used Distressed Details to stencil a different pattern on each of the cards.
Next, I used the large and small Love Sonnet to stencil the word “LOVE” all over the cards, front and back. After I dried them thoroughly, I applied a coat of Clear Gesso to seal them.
Finally a quick run through on my sewing machine, and the cards were finished and ready to send to 3 of my Valentines. This project was so quick and easy to complete.
