Terrible Twins

My offering today is another sample using Leonie's latest release of products.

If you read my post yesterday you will know that the Funky Tree stamp set has become a bit of a favourite with me.  So, although the main image has been created using the Rag Doll stamps, I have managed to sneak in the tree as well!

I have started with a fairly large piece of white stamping card and stamped the trees and lots of the foliage circles in Versamark ink.  When this was dry, I used a mixture of ink dusting brushes and cut and dry blending foam to colour the card in a range of blue Distress Inks with just a hint of yellow across the centre.  Some of the colour has been lifted from the trees using a damp paint brush and blotted with paper towel.  I have tried not to overdo the colour lifting as I wanted to keep it subtle so that it remained in the background.

The Rag Doll has been stamped twice on scraps of smooth watercolour card, coloured with watercolour pens, fussy cut and then mounted on to the background.

Finally, the words have been die cut using the Typography Alphabet dies which are part of this new release from Leonie.

I hope you like this range of products as much as I do - it has been great fun working with them.

That's about it from me today, thank you for visiting.

Bye for now

  3. I think this is a fantastic card design, Anne! I clicked to enlarge it in order to get the full impact of that stunning background which you successfully kept subtle, but awesome! And the twins are a colorful hoot! Love this!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Gorgeous card Anne!

  5. Double the trouble, double the fun. Your background is interesting but doesn't overpower. The twins are too much fun.
