layered stamping

Just been playing about tonight with layered stamping, this started out as a piece of white card,started by clear embossing the script and then colouring the card with DI Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet ( new colours to me and I love them )and then ironing off the embossing. Doesn't show up too much on here but I have used four or five different stamps on the background, all stamped with the same two ink pads.The Hero art bird collage is stamped with Versafine Smokey Grey. I did restamp the bird and clocks and cut them out,edged the clocks with Brushed Corduroy DI. I had to add an extra flower as I thought I would try and darken the colour of the leaves and went straight in with a dark green and it looked awful so cut out another flower and stuck it over the leaf. This is not for anything in particular , just for the pleasure of making it !

  6. Don't you love 'just for fun' projects. I love yours from the soft pinks to the layering. It has a wonderful sense of mystery to it.
