12 Days of Christmas Agathas – Day 2

Here’s the second postcard in my series The 12 Days of Christmas Agathas.

P1110355

To create this I’ve used another of Kate Crane’s backgrounds (check out the details in my post from yesterday) and Agatha Heart. In order to reverse the image I used the tissue transfer technique – stamping in black Archival ink on to single ply tissue (the normal nose blowing type, separated into single layers!) and then applied using Ranger’s Glue ‘n’ Seal, underneath and over the top (PVA, diluted with a little water, works just as well). I added a little colour, and the holy sprigs, using a combination of Promarkers and Polychromos.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Double the trouble with Agatha today, I love how you reversed the image, and look there he is again, my favourite little partridge!

    Keep them coming Mrs Beez.
