Zerknitterte Zwillinge

Tags: , ,

Besser spät als nie. Bei Sunday Postcard Art sind wir diese Woche aufgefordert Werke mit „Crackle“ also Knittereffekt zu zeigen. Bei der Gelegenheit habe ich endlich eine Technik ausprobiert, die ich schon seit Jahren testen wollte. Der Knittereffekt entsteht durch Wachspapier, das zusammengeknüllt und dann auf die Karte aufgebügelt wird. Und zur aktuellen Herausforderung bei den drei Musen passt meine Karte auch: Paare sind dort gefragt.

A little late but hey, so what? The ladies at Sunday Postcard Art have challenged us to show works with a crackle-effect. I took the chance to try out a technique that I’ve wanted to test for years. The crackle is achieved by ironing crumpled waxpaper onto the card. The card also matches the current three Muses-challenge, too: „What a peach of a pair!“

  1. Tolle Karte!

  5. What a great effect for the background! I love your pair. They made me laugh. I also like the use of the bits of newsprint. Great entry!

  8. It’s never too late, Svenja!! I love your Tweedledum and Tweedledee – the perfect pair. Your colours are wonderful and I love the way the twins are looking through a hole in the paper. Your crackle effect is sensational!! The idea of using wax on crumpled paper is so interesting to me. I will have to try it. Thanks so much for participating in the challenge. Great artwork and a wonderful sense of humour.
