Neutral wildflowersPosted: March 8, 2012
Here is another card made with one of the stamps from the Darkroom Door Wildflowers 2 set. It is an unusual colour scheme for me but I was thinking of the Less is More stamp challenge (Neutral colours) when I made it. By the time I had finished however I realised there was a little more stamping rather than less covering the card!
I started by masking the panel then stamping the wildflower spray in versamark a couple of times. I then sponged some crumb cake ink before sprinkling some clear embossing powder over the wildflowers. Because I had sponged after the versamark the embossed images ended up rather ghost-like. I inked a brayer with a small square ink pad and then transferred it to the panel creating slight tile effect on the back ground. A little more sponging, flowers stamped in early espresso and a black flower and sentiment completed the card.
Thank you again for visiting and commenting; I enjoy reading your comments and appreciate all your encouragement.
