Hi and thank you for visiting my blog.
Today I have a similar project to yesterday. It is quicker and easier than blending an inky background and the Woven Threads DSP used sets off the Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper beautifully. The image I used for this card was cut from a full 12×12 floral sheet supplied in the pack.
I used the same method as yesterday’s card on the Shimmer Paper where I gently sponged my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad directly onto the image, letting the ink dry each time until I had the desired coverage – three coats in this case. The top right and bottom left corners are from the Mini Coloured Doilies. I sponged the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad directly onto the rear side twice – I did originally sponge the ink onto the coloured side, Grapefruit Grove in this instance, but found it turned into a dark brown colour (a nice shade but not what I wanted for this card). I cut the doily into 4 equal pieces and used two on the card. I made a larger card base for this image, an A4 piece of Whisper White was cut to 10” x 7” and scored on the long side a 5”, whilst each layer was cut 1/8” less each time.
