Joanna Sheen samples - Pressed flowers 4
This is another of the samples I made for the launch of the new pressed flowers stamps available from Joanna Sheen.
There were 2 ivy stamps that I decided to use as I thought it would be a bit different. I stamped them, coloured them in with my promarkers and cut them out. I made a different design of card type to as this fitted what effort I was hoping for. The sentiment I thought was great for this as it's the main feature of the card with the ivy being used as embellishment. The font I used is called schoon which is a fab vintage handwriting style. I used an olivey green light washed paper which I inked the edges of with crushed olive distress ink. A little bit of leaf embossed gold mirror card and there really isn't much to it. I attached the ivy along the upper left corner to the bottom right corner, firstly with DST then added a few with foam pads for the impression of depth. It's different to what I normally do but it was the kind of effect I was aiming for.
I will enter this into the following challenges:-
CES - Monochromatic
One stop craft - Monochromatic
Papertake weekly - Truly dimensional
Anita be stampin - Anything goes
Stars and stamps - Layers (no glitter)
