It also has a sneaky peek of the sentiment dies that will be featured on Hochanda on the 13th and 14th of November as part of their One day Special.
So I stamped the A6 stamp on a piece of white stamping card in potting soil archival ink.
I then inked the whole piece with old paper distress ink to age it. I then started adding shading with antique linen, vintage photo, gathered twigs and walnut stain. I id same with little postcards, working separately on each.
To add the extra shadow around the postcards, pen and ink I went in with spectrum noir pencils. I used a few dark browns and in the end added a bit of black. This makes everything 'jump' off the page and looks dimensional.
I find this quite cool as in reality it is flat.
I also added some glaze with a clear sakura pen on ink bottle and pen nib.
When it was all dry i distressed around the edge and added some matting and layering.
Finally I die cut sentiment from chestnut card. Celebrate is a die on its own. Day is part of Wedding Day and the your is an amalgam. You comes from the Thinking of you die and I cut an r out of celebrate and glued together.
I finished it off with some pearls.
So I hope you enjoyed that process and I do hope to see you here and over the other blogs. The more you comment the higher your chances of winning.
Hop along, Theresa xx.
