I tried a new technique the other day - I do not recall where I saw it, but basically you ink your choice of embossing folder and letterpress your card, and once the card is dry, then emboss it using another folder - I used a very 'wet' pad of Tea Dye DI and the result was a slightly bubbly looking print, but I was happy how it turned out.
I then stamped, and re-stamped, and stamped again the ivy image (five times in total) - note to self, don't try and stamp so soon after having a migraine!!
I then stamped and embossed the sentiment down one side of the image panel. I am so enjoying using this (relatively new to me) stamp.
The panel was mounted over a rust coloured layer, and then mounted over some twine wrapped around the base, (using foam tape) and some buttons added.
The final detail was to paint two layers of WoS on the leaves for the subtle sparkle I managed to capture in the photo above.
