Hi there , well I'm back today with another card . This is a simple card using one stamp and contrasting black with a peachy main colour
The background of this card was created by stamping the Alexandra's Tea Rose with mushroom pigment ink randomly all over the card . As this stamp is quite large I masked parts of it with copy paper while stamping . Make sure the ink is dry and then rub Colour Cloud blending ink --- Baked Peach , Decadent Grape and Decadent Oak --- over the card blending the colours together.
Emboss a strip of card, I used the Large Sea Garden folder , and rub a little of the same inks over it .
I then rubbed Cast Bronze Gilding Wax over the raised embossed design . Black lace was then stuck along the back of the strip of card which was then attached to the background as shown.
I rubbed the same blending inks around the edges of a smaller piece of card and then stamped the entire design onto the card . I coloured the design with watercolour paint but I could have used any colouring medium . The card was then mounted on black card and the whole piece was mounted onto the card using foam pads . The quote was from a Creative Expressions stamp set --- Vintage Aviation --- and was coloured and mounted in the same way. I finished the card with three flat backed pearls coloured with black alcohol ink .
I particularly enjoyed contrasting the soft peach with the black, I felt it created a dramatic effect. However I feel that this could be done with other colours to create a different effect . So that's all for now but I will be back next week .
