Day 12 of 16

Yesterday was spent at home watching the rain clean the windows.  It didn't rain all day but by the time it improved I was very comfortable here at home.  Not sure where I'm going today, I do have another clutter bag to drop off and hopefully some wildlife to watch.

Another page for my 'Journal' collection this time using a new to me technique Painters Tape.   I found out about this from here.   Not having the materials used I took regular UK masking tape with distress inks, once the colour was transferred to the card I spritz it with water and left it to dry naturally.

When dry the card was stamped with a mix of Hobby Art & SU stamps using Memento inks the images have all been coloured with ProMarkers.   Along the top a freebie embossing folder was pressed  with a wooden kitchen tool.    Sakura glitter pen marked out the bottom of the embossed design, helping to show it while keeping it in the background.

  5. Gorgeous card Zoe, love the poppies and the super background.

  6. What a fantastic technique! I love how the background layers turned out-- they are so subtle, yet so powerful in creating the overall scene. I also really like the bright colors you used to color in the flowers. They are so striking against the background. I thought that the embossing you did was the perfect finishing touch! Great attention to detail and a stunning finished product. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
