For this card I used my other favoutite brand of stamps - Clarity. They may be a bit expensive but they are worth every penny.The base card is a piece of A4 purple card folded to make A5. This was stamped on the front and back with two sizes of "Leafy Swirl" stamp and left to dry. A piece of A6 silk coated white card had alcohol inks applied in various colours and then a small amount of gold mixative added for some subtle glitz. The front panel was brayered with ink from a Big and Juicy pad and then it was splashed with water to lift spots of the ink to add a bit of texture to an otherwise flat background. The image was stamped in Black Stazon and when dry white highlights were added using a white Sakura pen. Out came the Nesties (what would I do without them) to cut the front panel and a black surround. Everything was layered onto the purple card and a white insert was added which had borders stamped with the "Leafy Swirl" stamp.
