Reverse Flowers and Leaves

This card was made using a technique that I learned at the INKd Imagine crafts workshop at CHA.

Supplies used:  Hero Arts stamps:  Reversed Flowers and Leaves, Blooming Meadow,
                         JustRite  Sentiment and Spellbinder Tag
Tsukineko Supplies:  Memento:  1. Pistachio, 2.  Zeal, 3. Nautical Blue, 4. Elderberry
Imagine Craft supplies:  Fireworks! Bahama Blue

The technique we used was to put the ink directly on the background stamp. They suggested to work from the lighter to darker.  Use inks 1, 2 and 3 in that order. Place the ink random on the stamp. Each card you create using this technique will give you a different effect.  Follow this with the Fireworks spray so that it helps the inks blend.  The next step is to stamp on white card stock.  I used Neenah Solar White to create this project.  When dry using the Blooming Meadow stamp ink it with the Elderberry and then
stamp on top of the background.  The rest is to create your card.  This card was created as a wedding card, but could be a sympathy or birthday.
