I post a lot over on the Stamping Mad Forum, and this month the ATC theme was ‘Dots’. Having just bought a set of Scallop Nestabilites dies and needing an excuse to use them I made the following ATC
Inks; Ranger Adirondack Dye ink; Willow, Pink Sherbert, Watermelon. Versafine; Onyx Black. White gel pen
Stamps; Anna Griffin Rose Background, Rose motif
Nestabilities; Large Oval Scallop
I applied the inks using Cut n Dry foam from Ranger, the shading around the edge of the scallop is created by applying addtional layers of the light ink until desired shade is created. The dark edge is the watermelon ink. The background was created by sponging on Willow ink to colour the base card, then the background was stamped on using the same colour of ink. I edged the card using the Watermelon ink. The Rose motif was from a clear set of Anna Griffin stamps from QVC, these are perfect for smaller cards as the images are scalled down from the full sized woodmounted stamps by Anna Griffin.
