My Creative Monday for Magenta - Fleurs

How to make this card: 

- create a background by sprinkling Nuance powders onto an acrylic block, misting it with water and stamping it on cardstock. Leave the block on the cardstock for quite a while.. the longer the better. 
- Stamp the image onto the background with Versafine Onyx black and heat emboss with clear. 
- Remove color from within the image with bleach. (it gave me this orange color, not white!)
- Stamp in the background with the text stamp and bleach. 
- Stamp in the background with the Folkart Foliage stamp with black ink. 
- stamp the same image as the previous step onto the carddstock of the folded card. 
- Color the images partly with orange. 
- Cover the images with gesso to soften it a little. 
- Adhere the smaller card to the cardbase. (I attached part of a diecut in white on the left hand side as well)

- add white with an acrylic marker to the stamped image to make it pop more! 

This is the technique I did on the Art Specially Event in April.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - Trees in the sun

One of the new stamps - a design from Helene!
It's so gorgeous and makes for landscape cards very easily! 

Before stamping the image, I covered the paper with gesso very randomly.
This makes sponging distress inks over it, also very random and splotchy.
