I watched Leandra's glaze- and medium videos last night and realized I could at last try my Fresco Matte Glaze... So after gluing newspaper on a piece of cardstock, I used the glaze to thin out my white paint so it wouldn't cover the text completely. After stamping all the images, I added a layer of clear gesso. This made it possible to continue with black watercolour and a black Inktense pencil which I used to paint the background scene and darken the frame areas.
I've been enjoying Tera's Mail Art Monday posts (I cut that little writing circle after watching the latest one :) and made a matching envelope for the card. I usually try to do these straight away while the stamps are still out... that way it doesn't take more than a couple of minutes, at least if it's kept as simple as this.
