Hello again. Finally, I managed to produce an effect I've been after for a long time. That's having a multi-coloured ink pad as my Ranger big and juicy ink pads do not have separate colours anymore but a blended ink!
I used the cut 'n' dry felt pad and distress re-inkers to make my own ink pad. Colours I used include shabby shutters, mustard seed, squeezed lemonade, tea dye, rusty hinge, fired brick and aged mahogany.
I started by using the flowing branches stencil and inked through it with distress inks and a make up sponge. I used tea dye, brushed corduroy and vintage photo. Using the make shift ink pad and the abstract leaves I stamped a number of them along the branches. I stamped another lot on another piece of card and fussy cut them. Then I layered some of them as shown adding some dimension.
I stamped the sentiment from the word chains by Claritystamp in red geranium archival ink and clear embossed. I did feel that this stamp finished it off nicely. I used a promarker to edge the art work and mounted it on an A5 white base card.
On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Claritystamp in red geranium archival and added 3 leaves that I had cut earlier.
As always I do hope you like my offering, Theresa xx
