Two fer day

Hello. I'm back again and today i have 2 cards on offer. Both are created with IndigoBlu stamps.

In the first one I started with a piece of graphic 45 paper that i am sure i bought because i liked the flipside of it. But then i saw this area and I got an idea which I wanted to try out.

So I stamped the bow in red geranium archival ink and masked it off. I then  stamped the wreath in fern green and olive archival ink. Thus the bow was at the front. The sentiment was already on the paper but i just enhanced it with a sepia pen.

I covered the front of a 7x7 card with the gutted piece of g45. I matted the topper on chestnut card thus hiding the gap, whilst aligning the topper. I finished it off with some berry red cosmic shimmer pva, some glitter pen highlights on wreath and finally sepia glossy accents on bow.

My second card is similar to my guest design piece which you can find here. The difference is that it is a whole stamp and i embossed in gold detail powder.

I used same browns for inking and the script. For the little snowflakes i used peacock feathers 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation ink.

I coloured baubles with peacock feathers DI and a damp brush, added some glitter highlights and covered them in glossy accents.

I matted and layered and used a teal base card which made the peacock feathers DI pop.

Well i do hope you like my offerings, Theresa xx
