Hello there and thank you for popping over to my blog :) This is my Inspiration post for Sheena's Ink-ettes. I took my inspiration from watching old t.v shows of Sheena's, when she launched her Indian range of stamps. I loved the mix of bright colours and I thought 'Oooh - I wonder if they would work with other Sheena stamps?' So here is my little 'experiment'! :) The stamps I have used are all from the 'Little Bit Sketchy' range, Blooming Beautiful, A New Leaf, and Simply Scriptly.
I used Aqua tints and SN alchohol pens to colour, Versafine Ink and drawing gum.
I started by stamping foliage onto the a piece of card and masking with drawing gum. I then painted a wash of pinks and oranges over the whole panel.
While that was drying I stamped the flowers onto acetate and heat embossed in black, then over stamped with the script using black Stazon.
I stamped a small flower and leaf in co-ordinating DI's randomly all over the background.
I took a piece of Kraft card and embosse it in a folder.
I added gold gilding wax around the edges. This makes a pretty border for the background panel.
I cut the flowers out and added gold Pebeo marker.
I attached the background panel to the Kraft card border and then to the basecard. I then attached the flowers with dimensional glue to the back ground
I added Stickles to the centres of the flowers, and to the corners of the card
I think this is a lovely card for several occassions, male or female, of any age.
