Tree Card

What a hectic week it has been. Still, here we are on the 1st of October and autumn is well under way. Therefore I thought I would go for an autumnal coloured design.

I loved making the background paper on this one. It was made by washing a piece of white card with walnut ink with mica powder in it, Whilst it was still wet I sprinkled salt on the page which absorbs the water thus concentrating the mic powder around it. It gives a wonderful effect, When it is dry you just brush the salt off.

The main image is on glossy whits card which has been brayered. The moon was created but using a mask made from a Post It note which was stuck in place before the brayer was applied. When dry, this was then over stamped with a tree on a hill image from Elusive Images.

The smaller sentiment panel was a tree image from EI which was stamped onto glossy card using clear Versamark ink. When this was dry it was brayered over so that the Versamark ink acted as a resist to the bryered ink. This was then over stamped with the sentiment.

The background was ripped to give rough edges and then lots of layers were built up to give the finished A4 size card.

I hope you like it.
