LIM #411

A One Layer Card over at Simply Less is More Challenge #411 with the theme “Off Center”. My card base is green, in other words this is my white space, to which I stamped an old favourite, Dyan Reaveley Further Around the Edge stamp, with Versamark and pesto green EP. Then with Polychrome colouring pencils I first coloured the leaves in white and gradually added two other tones of green. I masked the leaves and ink blended a little green to the bottom of the card. I lightly salted this still humide surface with the same pesto green EP. Finally, I stamped a Lawn Fawn BEE in gold, to which I applied some Liquid Pearls.

So excited by the Shout Out at Less is More, I’ve been Show Cased 😀

AI Hugs

Wanting to play with Alcohol Inks, I initially wanted to make a one layer card to play along with the CAS(E) this Sketch #355 made in the past by Sam Simpson. Using my Gelli Plate, I applied a layer of gloss gel medium onto mixed media paper. Once dry, I added some clear alcohol and a little green and blue onto this, now, non porous surface. I then stamped and heat embossed a tiny feather, but it just didn’t POP. Determined to make this work I added these Alexandra Renke blooms, added Nuvo Drops with light blue glitter centres, and framed with some gold liquide Pearls. Then to flatten the curled OLC, created by the medium, I cut and matted this piece onto a white card stock base. The white “hugs” word die was layered 4 times over dark blue card stock. Here’s a close-up 😉
