two fer day.....



Today I am featuring 2 cards. I did not make these unless you consider matting on black and sticking to base card as 'making a card'. The artwork was done by my lively 6 yr old Massimo.


These are the thank you cards he has made for his teachers. This first one is for his year teacher Mrs Chester. He said she likes the warmer colours so he wanted a warm sunny picture. 


So some masking first. Then using the ink dusters he created background. He loves making these kind of pictures as they are quick but striking. He used, festive berries, ripe persimmon, dried marigold, mustard seed and squeezed lemonade and shabby shutters. Then he decided it needed a bit of brown and I handed him fired brick which he thought was an awesome colour. He put a tiny bit on the upper edge. and I think he was so right!


The images are all from Claritystamp and were stamped in black archival ink. I do hold his hand a little bit here so as to keep stamp steady. The sentiments are also from Clarity stamp.
Notice the 3 little birds? Yes you guessed it. Mummy manages to smudge it when matting so had to salvage it :).



This card is for the TA Ms Malick. Here he used chipped sapphire, faded jeans, dusty concord, picked raspberries, tumbled glass for the sky. He then said it wasn't night enough and decided to add a bit of black soot. This transformed it. The hills are inked in bundled sage, peeled paint and forest moss.


It was his idea to have owl 'in the moon' - his words.


I am biased I know but I do think that these cards are stunning in their simplicity!

If you enjoy them too, do leave him a comment. He will be thrilled! I wish I could have captured his enthusiasm when he was making them......., Theresa xx

I would like to enter these in the following challenges:
Claritystamp challenge - anything goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday  anything goes
Sunday Stamper - hello and goodbye

  10. Wow Massimo, you are such a clever boy. The children in my class at school are a lot older than you and are good at art but not as talented as you Massimo. Well done! Mrs Chester and Ms Malick will love them! How lucky they are to have you in their class.

They will be so impressed and I am sure will want to try to make something like yours. I know I would be so pleased to get a card as beautiful as these. Maureen xx oo :-)
