Odds & Soxlets

Hi, yes there was no Odds & Soxlets card from me last week as I have said previously my cards can only come on days when I am physically able to do so due to my broken foot still being in plaster! :(

Today I have a new technique to share with you. These type of cards you may have seen in my shop. I sketch an image, put it under acetate and do an outline then paint it in with a mixture of various paints. Here I have resized the Toots image, and followed this technique.

Sorry for the picture being this way, it is the only way I could take the picture and stop the reflection on the acetate. Also I covered the aperture with grey carstock, sanded it with the coordinations sand it gadget and used the dust buddy to clear the dust of. Two very good tools that I picked up from Create and Craft.
Products used:
Aperture Card
Coordinations Cardstock
Coordinations Sand It Gadget
Dust It Buddy

For anyone who is interested, this item is available to purchase in my Etsy shop here
