Artistry ink collection Lime kiss /Lime kiss / Avocado
Distress ink pad Pine needles
Notelets /Kitchen roll
Clarity Thank you collection stamps
Clarity Circle stencil / Ginkgo stencil
Promarkers burnt orange /pine / black plus fine point nib
Green card

Shall we begin

Start with the circle stencil put in place on the card and stamp thank you so you get this exactly where you would like this

With the peach ink pad and stencil brush I added ink to the out circle but not the middle wanted more of a shadow using make up sponge bring the ink of the stencil into the circle to sharpen this with stencil off add rest of sentiment

Now with my ginkgo stencil I place in corner I used post it notes to cover areas did not want to contaminate with  ink with stencil brush I used lime kiss then with avocado used more on the edges bring colour in with sponge then hit the edges  and stalk with pine needles again using sponge now repeat on the opposite side top corner  now with the two remaining corners wanted more of a shadow so just used what was left on the brushes and on the sponges

 I know I use this technic a lot but I do like it I started with the peach ink pad screw up my paper towel and dip straight into ink pad if bit worried try dabbing on to scrap paper first at least this way you can see how bright  it with come up first dab around the outer sides till you are satisfied

Now move your kitchen roll around so you have clean part do the same with the willow till you are happy

Take masking tape off I did slanted black line with fine point all through the thank you then alternate green and orange colour for the out side of the card wanted to doodle but did not want just squiggle line but thought be easy to over do this so I chose dots two fine dots and one bigger all around the edge now I mounted this on to green card I do hope you enjoyed this thank you for visiting my blog hope you will return again soon x
