Slimline Card

Slimline Card

The Lavinia Stamps that I used are miniature Dragon, Cherry blossom, Skeleton Tree Scene and Dragon Stone Castle.  The inks that I used are Distress ink Aged Mahogany, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar.  I stamped the castle using VersaFine Clair Glamorous and the trees in VersaFine Clair Pinecone. I cut  white cardstock at 3 1/2" x 9".  I wanted a cloudy background so I used a cloud template that I made years ago.  Cut out a circle and  tape or glue on the big circle 6 scalloped circles.  I taped them so the scalloped circles are at different heights.  Lay the template on your paper and use either a blending brush or a dobber and brush the ink over the scalloped circles.  You rotate as you go and you will get a cloudy sky.  If you want more definition use more than one color.

I used Distress Ink Spun Sugar.  As I was making my clouds some on the blue came off and made for some subtle contrasting.
I stamped the castle using VersaFine Clair Glamorous.  I grounded the castle by tearing a piece of paper towel in a curved shaped to look like a small hill and used Distress Ink Aged Mahogany.  I stamped the Cherry Blossom in Distress Ink Picked Raspberry.  I wanted bushes around the castle and I didn't have any I liked so I used the Skeleton Tree Scene stamps and only inked the top of the trees with Versafine Clair Pinecone to give me the bushes that I wanted.
I used a yellow pencil to add a little color to the cherry blossoms.  I used a white and gold gel pen to give dimension to the castle and the bushes and  cherry blossoms.  I use gellyroll sparkle pen to trace the outline of the clouds to add a little sparkle to the background.  I mounted the card on a bright pink cardstock and then on a light pink card.  This card will in a business envelope.
