Fern birthday cardPosted: March 21, 2013
After playing around with sponging on tags the other day I decided to make my panel a bit larger and use the same technique. These colours are an unusual combination but made me think of rainforests with a bit of sun breaking through the canopy. If you look closely at the top right hand corner of the panel the green and purple inks have created a cool “photo negative” effect. I am going to play with that idea again for sure.
My process was pretty much the same as with the tags. I stamped the dot background in green, sponged in green then added fern stamps in green. I chose elderberry as my contrasting colour and added perimeter sponging, ferns and the sentiment several times to complete the panel. I did a little intentional restamping again for the out of focus effect; I am just messing with your eyesight!
This card works for the current Less is More challenge where we have to frame something on our card. I have framed both by masking the border of my image panel and by popping it up on the card base.
