Baby Carriage

Welcome

I would love to take this time to introduce my newest followers
 Mac Mable of The Sweetest of Peas - please pop over and visit her - her work is wonderful and you will be inspired,
and Monica of Handmade Cards With Love For Charity, who is the queen of making beautiful cards with  up-cycled elements.


The background of this card was one I made at my class this month, where I used a technique called reverse stenciling - I altered the technique slightly and after brayer-ing the dye onto the stencil, I moistened it with a spray of silver shimmer mist.  I can be seen, but the camera did not pick it up in the photos as it is quite subtle.


I inked the edge of the stenciled layer with one of the colours I used on the stencil, and the the purple layers with the other ink.  The white embossed sentiment was an unmarked stamp.
 

I finished the card with a die cut of a baby carriage in the purple, painted with WoS, which you can just see here.  The die is Ornate Pram by Wild Rose - and was a RAK from the lovely Kary at Papercrafting and Travels
