I picked up some
Crafter’s Workshop Black Modeling Paste and have been wanting to try it out. Combined with the Germ Stencil and Cooties stamp from Jaded Blossom seemed to be the perfect start. I’m sure these would make great Covid-19 cards but I went with a generic theme for mine.
Cooties! Periodic Words Germ Stencil
I started by coloring the background with Distressed Inks and blender brushes. The colors I chose were blues and green and later I would bring in some yellow. Otherwise, I planned to keep the card simple. After the background was done, I placed my stencil and applied the modeling paste. The black is a nice solid mat black which makes it stand out and look crisp.
I actually have two periodic words stamp sets from two different companies. It seems that no matter what I want to make, it’s not enough. I wish I had the whole chart of elements to work with! But for this card, I fudged it by covering up the letters that I didn’t need to spell out “Cooties.”
The little Cooties! characters were simple and quick to color. I kept with the color scheme of green and blues but then added yellow to brighten it up a little. Below you can see how the modeling paste looks like. It’s also thick and opaque so I was able to get a nice layer applied to the paper.
