trees and mantle clarity homework

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. 

 Another shot hopefully to see shimmer.
This is inside of card.

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
