I kept things very simple and tried hard to keep to the colour palette requested. Hopefully a little distressing around the edges is acceptable! At first I tried making the elements without inking of some kind around the edges but it simply didn't work for me. I often don't use sentiments either so this was a challenge in itself as I only have a very SMALL number of sentiment stamps - they amount to no more than an A5 sheet I suppose. I really must do something about that I think.
I'm reasonably pleased with the end result and can see it being a useful general card to send out. See what you think:
|The completed card.|
|The die cuts were layered to add a little more depth.|
|Simple sentiment stamped with coffee archival onto scrap card coloured with dylusion ink and stamped with script using mustard seed distress ink.|
|The foreground die cuts were inked with dylusions and the ones at the back with distress inks. Simple script was stamped in toning distress inks.|
