Meet the Artist - Pat Humby

Hi everyone.

I hope you all had an enjoyable Sunday.

Mine was full of doing nothing!!

Here is card no.4
from Pat Humby

This is how I think Pat has created today's card:

Take a piece of 7" x 7" stencil card
using a selection of Artistry Ink Pads
apply the colour with our Stencil Brushes.

When you are happy with the blend of colours,
position Jo's Bubbles stencil over the card.

Take a blending tool and lightly spritz with water, 
making sure that the sponge is not to wet, just damp.
Then dab, dab, dab through the stencil.
This will slowly start to lift the colour away.

Keep repeating until you are happy 
you have removed enough colour. 
If you remove to much colour, 
wait for the card to dry and 
then reapply with the Stencil brushes.

When you have finished removing the colour let the card dry.
Stamp Barbara's favourite boy, 
Fly Away Boy using a Black Archival ink pad.
Then finish off with the verse, 

So today's 20% Blog Offer is:

available as a set HERE

The blending tool is available as a bundle
 and is already on special price £10 instead of £14.99!

available HERE

Happy Crafting!

  5. Hello Paul

    Glad to hear you have had a day doing next to nothing. Only two weeks to the workshop at Colemans and I liked, what I presume to be, the sneaky peak of yesterday's workshop.


  6. Sounds like you had a nice lazy day Paul. We have had a lovely family get together at our son's house. Lots of fun. Fabulous card Pam bet Barbara loved it with her favourite stamp on it. xx

  7. Another beautiful card, the colours are so vibrant. Well done Pat. Xx

  8. Evening bloggy friends, back to work tomorrow, which is why I have that Sunday feeling. Xx

    1. Hi Donna,
      I hope tomorrow isn’t too bad! You’ll probably walk through those doors and forget you’ve even had a holiday - that’s what it felt like to me anyway! Love and hugs, Alison xxx

  9. That verse goes so perfectly with the boy stamp, and the background is fab. Well done Pat!

  10. Well done to Pat for creating a wonderful piece of work and loves those bubbles and the beautiful colours in the background, and the Fly Away Boy looks great here, also a super sentiment. Thanks for the 'how to' Paul. x

  11. Hi Paul,
    Another really lovely card - well done Pat. The background is fabulous and the colours you’ve chosen are so vibrant and gorgeous. You were certainly onto a winner using Batb’s all time favourite stap as well. The verse is lovely and very apt.
    Thanks Paul yet again.
    Love Alison x

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
