Mailart Monday; It's just a Jester

VLV Card Jester

This weekend I looked at the Viva Las Vegastamps novermber challenge board and the words like gold, warm, yellowtansbrownsvintageblack and white, background stamps, doodlesharlequin, diamond, distressed, polka dotsswirls, circles, heartsstripes  inspired to create the card above.  I used an array of VLVS but the focal point here is the Whimsical Jester for a fun and whimsical gesture card ;)

The base of the card is a piece of the scrapbook paper I prepped with Gold Gesso. The gesso is a really good base for the metallic rub ons and distress stains. Though the dovecrafts white opaque stamp ink needed a REALLY long time to dry... eventually I smudged them a bit so the stark white is muted in the end. I used an array of VLVstamps to create the background;

When the background was done I colored the jester's background space with tan brown copic and matted that onto a black card stock on which I stamped the jester with white opaque stamping ink. The doodled edges of the stamp then combine to make it even more fun and whimsical :) I added some distress stains in bronze and white along the edges of both the jester and the background. Then adhered the pieced together and matted it on a black note card.

In the end I also used the "a drawing is simply a line going for a walk" stamp to add to the whimsical vibe of the card. Sometimes you just need a fun whimsy card to send out as a gesture.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
