Skull verses nature's beauty

Good morning 😊😊

Been playing with my  Bee Crafty stamps and thought I'd blog what I made for you xx

I combined the darkness of the Skull with the beauty of nature, and the gorgeous Ground Elder. How well do they go together. ..

Stamps used:
BEAUtanicals: Ground Elder
Life &Rain

Also used:
Distress Oxides: Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet,
Vintage Sepia versafine

  • I cut some white card slightly smaller than my card blank and a piece of kraft card slightly smaller than this.  I set the white card mat to one side
  • I stamped the skull in the versafine ink and then masked it off, together with a horizontal panel
  • Within the panel I blended Fossilized Amber DO 
  • I spritzed the cog stamp with water, stamped it into the DO, holding it there for a few seconds, before lifting it off. This gives a water bleach type stamped image. I repeated this several times
  • I then stamped the Cogs in Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers DO 
  • I carefully removed the masking tape 
  • The flowers were also stamped in the DO's as well as the sentiment,  which I stamped in two parts 
  • This was then adhered to white card mat and then onto card blank to complete the sample

I hope you enjoyed today's blog
