Vintage Iris

I am sharing a couple more cards from the May Hochanda show.

The first one uses the pretty Iris stamp which is found on the Kingfisher Song stamp set.  I stamped the image and coloured with alcohol markers. I then aged it with a crackle stamp and Distress inks. I die cut a frame and used a variety of acrylic paints in blue, grey and gold to give a tarnished look. I layered it onto some pretty paper and some card which I also tarnished the edges. I added some of the ephemera from Baroque Ephemera 1 and Baroque Ephemera 2.

My next card uses the large tree stamp from Trees a Crowd set . I took a piece of card and sponged inks through the Squarely Stencil.  I used different inks and kept turning the stencil until I was happy with the background. I inked over the whole card with Distress Ink Antique Linen.  I then stamped and embossed the tree and sentiment.

Thanks for looking
