My second card began by creating a background design using Alcohol inks and Gloss Paper. These were dabbed on my craft mat along with some blending fluid before smooshing the colours together using a piece of gloss paper. I then used a background stamp from Indigo Blu and Black Archival Ink to stamp out Bare Forest. To hide the join in the stamp I added a strip of ruched ribbon which I had aged with Distress Ink.
On another piece of white card, I created the smooched background as I did in my previous card using water and Distress Stains on my craft mat. I stamped the owl stamp from Hocus Pocus onto this once dry using black Archival Ink. I also stamped this image onto a piece of plain white card.
Using Distress markers and my water brush ( see more detail for card 1), I coloured the owl and the castle and then cut them out and glued them onto the inked owl background paper. Brushed Corduroy was added to the edges before mounting the design on black cardstock and taping the back with foam tape.
Finishing touches were added with a fine gold Sharpie.
I hope you like my creations. Please leave a comment.
