Hi All. I love these teasels by Art Journey Stamps from their set called Nature Flowers and decided to use them for a friend's birthday and it was a fairly quick card to come together.
I started with the washy background and by just flapping the paper into the ink with added water on my glass mat you get small areas of coverage of the colours, drying in between layers until you get the look you want. I used Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. I then used a Kaisercraft stamp called Background Postmarks, to make a pattern and to fill in the gaps. I have had this for a long time, and naughty me have only used it for the first time now. I used the Salty Ocean DI to stamp so it would just be part of the overall background. I then cut it down and added the teasels and the words up the side of the tallest of the two stems, and then added a sentiment, using my Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.
Finally I added it on to a white mat and then added this to the 7" x 5" white card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
