I had a wonderful time at the mini show at the Holiday in Kent on Sunday meeting so many lovely people. One of the demos I did was this piece I have used for the centre of this card. I love getting the pieces I have made on demos home so that I can, with my full craft stash as I can't take everything with me, make these into finished cards and samples.
Today's card is made using my Oval jedi-late as well as just 2 colours of ink and 3 stamps! I stared by adding blue and purple pigment into the media plate. I then brayered this to smooth the ink and used 2 of the leaves from my circle leaves set to stamp onto the plate to pick up the ink and then stamping this onto the card. I continued removing the ink and adding it back on 2 corners of the oval. This gives, as shown stamped images that have both colours.
Next I stamped the oval so that the areas I had removed the ink show as shadowed showing the white card below. I added more of the blue ink using the mini blending tool ( Finally back in stock for next Tuesday's Hochanda shows) and stamped this to gradient the oval.
Once I got the piece home I added some shaded roses at each end along with leaves cut with scraps of card I had cleaned my brayer on ( I run my brayer over plain card to clean it between uses which makes a brilliant shaded piece perfect for die cutting)
