Make My Monday

Good Morning all.

Its time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday 
The theme this fortnight is


5X5 Octogen Card.  I first die cut a stitched octogen from white card.  I then stamped the leaf stamp with embossing ink and added clear embossing powder.  I then added colour to the background with H2O's that ive had for years, this year im trying to use all those ink products hiding at the back of the cupboard!  These ones are full of mica and sparkle.

I added green and ochre around the leaves to give the feeling of depth and surround greenery.  Blue for the sky, once dry i added water drops to the blue to add interest. 

Butterflies stamped in blue ink on a scrap of card coloured with oxide inks and cut out.  Die cut sentiment from the same piece of red/pink card and added on a strip of vellum to help it stand out from the background. 

Ive then matted onto a very dark green cardstock and then the white cardblank.  

Just showing it stood up. 

Items Used:
Stampin Up Kinda Eclectic
Clearly besotted butterfly stamps
H2O's Radiant Rain inks
Oxide ink Candied Apple & Raspberry
Memory box stitched octogen dies
Thank you die
