Welcome to the start of April release week for Neat & Tangled!
Day 1 is for a stamp set with lovely ginko leaf images and co-ordinating sentiments – Have Courage – here’s my card:
I began by creating the watercolour style background using all the solid ginko leaf images from the set. I took a piece of watercolour paper and stamped the images repeatedly with Dylusions ink sprays, making sure to overlap some impressions.
I applied the ink using the applicator from the bottle, and swiping it across the stamp. I dampened the part of the watercolour panel that I was going to stamp on with a bit of water first, and then stamped the image – this gave me lovely results, as I wasn’t looking for a clean, sharp impression.
I heat set the stamped ginko leaf panel and then added detail with a black fine line marker. I also added flicked on small dots of gold paint and then heat set once more. I trimmed the panel down to slightly smaller than my card base and foam mounted to the front.
I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a strip of black cardstock with Versamark, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.
I foam mounted the sentiment strip to the card front and tucked in a few yellow and green sequins.
