Ferns and Fiddles

Ferns Graphic

Today’s sneak peek is one of my favorites of the June releases…Ferns and Fiddles.

DPK_SneakPeek_FernsFiddles

I repeatedly stamped the ferns on Flourishes Classic White card stock  with  white pigment ink and embossed with white ep.  I also randomly stamped a few ferns in Versamark but did not emboss.  When I then inked the panel with various green and blue chalk inks with a sponge the Versamark images picked up the ink heavier and appear as shadows behind the white ones.   I stamped the sentiment from Life Lines and cut it out with a Spellbinders die and inked inside the die while it was still in place.  I punched holes at each end of the die cut and ran the May Arts silk ribbon through it.  I added a flat backed pearl to each end and tucked a few paper ferns from Prima underneath to finish it off.  I’ve had them for several years and I don’t get to use them much, but they were the perfect touch!

Make sure you check out all the fabulous samples from the DT!
