Harmony

Good Morning 
Here is a card I made a few days ago.  Just having some fun playing with my Distress Oxide inks.
My card was inspired by a previously inked piece that I made using Alcohol inks on Yupo.

So onto my card details.
I got a piece of white cardstock and positioned my acrylic rectangle mask over my paper.  I took my colour cues from the Alcohol inked piece and got out some Peacock Feather, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and proceeded to apply it to the background with a makeup blending brush.  To add interest, I stenciled along the side and bottom with the Grains stencil from A Colorful Life Designs using some more Faded Jeans DI ink.  I splattered with water to lift some of the colour, love how it looks like raindrops, then I added a bit of stamping using stamps from the same VI set.
Next, I removed the acrylic mask and stamped in the flower from Visible Image using my Misti and some black Memento ink.  I stamped the flower head again onto my piece of inked Yupo and heat embossed it with some Ranger Black EB powder.  I fussy cut it out and pop dotted it over my inked rectangle.  Lastly, I doodled in a line to pull the whole design together.



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

There's that gorgeous poppy again! I love how you've done these colors, Karen. I thought it was done with Alcohol inks until I read your description! Another amazing technique!

Simply stunning Karen. I so love that stamp and is on a notify me when it is back in stock at a local craft supplier here in Oz. Love the muted coloured stenciling here and the touch of mauve to the cut out stamped head adds so much interest. Love the doodled frame which really does pull this beauty together perfectly.
