Where has the time gone. 6 days since I did my last entry.
So here we have a clarity stamp card using 2 different sizes of Swirling leaf stamp.
The back grounds were made by spraying the card with a few different colours of Glimmer Mist. Once dry, this was over stamped with the 2 stamps using Adirondack ink.
For the main element, a piece of white card was coloured with various shades of brown and beige Adirondack ink applied with cut and dry foam.. It was then stamped using both sizes of stamp, first in a dark brown and then in lighter brown , the second colour being offset from the first. The outer edge of the piece was then aged with a dark brown ink. The whole think was the triple embossing with clear powder to give a glossy finish. The edges were then embossed with some copper embossing powder to complete it.
To build up the card I started with a dark brown A4 sheet and folded it in half and trimmed off a piece from the front. The inside of the back cover was lined with the previously manufactured stamped & sprayed sheet. Matting and layering more of this sheet with copper Mirror card gave a good grounding for the centrepiece and finally the centrepiece was added.
