Inspired by my previous Art Journal and also this pin in my Pinterest Card Ideas board, I thought of making a simple card carrying some leafy twigs in it.
The technique itself is really simple :). I first gesso-ed the center part of a piece of card stock. After it dried, I laid the stencil across it and started sponging the dye ink on top. I also tried blending inks of different colors, by sliding the first layer of ink and stamping the second layer. This brought out a subtle change in color and texture in the leaves.
Once this dried I added the sentiment which I had stamped and cut out the piece in a pennant shape.
The only thing I am sad about in this card is that one of the twigs got covered off by the sentiment. As my sister rightly commented, if I had thought about the layout earlier, I could have just moved the twig a little higher in the card. 😦 Well, you learn as you make mistakes, I guess! 😉
Thanks for looking! 🙂
