Phew what a beautiful summer day we're having again. I've had a lovely day so far pottering around making some cards and jewellery. This card came about after a little play with some inks - tinkabella for the main image and memento dye inks for the background.
The background is brayered with canteloupe and bamboo leaves memento ink and stamped with stamps from Fantasy Meadow and Floral Bouquet stamp sheets from Chocolate Baroque. The background is matted on some black card and has black enamel accents in the corners.
I stamped the main image onto coated white card using black versafine with stamps from Fantasy Meadow, Floral bouquet and also Nature Table and Gossamer Wings (all again from Chocolate Baroque). I painted the images with tinkabella inks, they have a lovely sheen especially on this coated cardstock. I made the background with more tinkabella inks and lots of water which makes the inks break up and created a lovely effect. Once the background was dry I overstamped some more foliage around the top of the image in black.
To finish off I added a creative acrylic tag stamped with a HOTP sentiment and embossed with black EP.
