This was my favourite card that i made with the trees but unfortunately it was missed. It is a technique i saw Sue Wilson demo on c&c and it is on her blog particraft.blogspot.com. Basically you mask off an area of the card and ink the other parts with distress inks. i used peacock feathers, rusty hinge and mustard seeds. I then added mica powder to inked areas (golden one). Then i removed mask and stamped leaves from the autumn set in versamark. i added mica powder to these (green). Using same leaves, I stamped them again in black archival. I stamped the smaller tree twice in the gap left, after blotting. Then i added the sentiment in black archival,matted on black and on A5 white base card. In real life the card shimmers loads but is really difficult to photograph.
This was a shown card that was done with cobalt blue archival ink and blue distress inks: weathered wood for snow; tumbled glass, stormy sky, faded jeans, chipped sapphire for sky. Stamps from lesson 21 and 14. Sentiment is embossed with stardust embossing powder.
This was a second card that i sent in. It is stamped with black archival. Stamps used are from lesson 21 and bauble set. Sentiment is embossed with stardust embossing powder.
Well i apologize for the length of this post. Hope you stayed with till the end. Enjoy yourselves, Theresa xx
