This week’s #TGIFC162 Challenge was to use Smoky Slate, Night of Navy and Old Olive. I have chosen the beautiful Touches of Texture stamp set as I really like the different elements in it. It has images with lots of texture, some of which I’ve used today.
I stamped the image in Smoky Slate on Vellum, then using my reinkers and blender pens I painted the image.
To create the background layer I sprinkled Moss Green and Prussian Blue Brusho Crystals direct to the gloss cardstock. I spritzed the Hardwood stamp with water, shaking off any excess from it and then stamped it over the Brushos. The image of the Hardwood stamp shows with a burst of Brushos colour. To blend the colours a bit more I stippled a baby wipe across the cardstock which also activated the Brushos more.
I stamped some of the texture images on top of the Hardwood stamp in Old Olive and Night of Navy.
For the embellishments I have layered ribbons and added some silver Leaves Trinkets. These embellishments are part of the Nature’s Poem suite and come in a pack of 24 with a single leaf and a group of 3 leaves in silver and copper. They are getting a lot of use on my cards – I love the look of them.
The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set which I stamped and cut apart.
