Todays card is a hybrid of a background acrd I made and the topper I brought home with me form my Hochanda shows. I simply loved how this came out so wanted to make it into a finished card straight away!
The background is made by stamping the small solid leaves form the circle leaves clear stamp set onto the large media plate in Wax, verbena and emerald ixzink dye ink pads. I stamped the leaves randomly over the plate and stamped this onto the card, I continued adding layers using the different colours of the inks and the plate. Once I was finished I cut the background into three panels and matted them with dark green card.
For the topper I made a peacock feather print using the pigment and dye inks and again the media plate. I then stamped over this with the floral circle stamp using the verbena, petrol and emerald inks. I rotated the stamp in the press so that I built up layers of colours and design. I cut this to a 4" square and again matted this onto dark green card.
