Emily DT - Teasels

Hi everyone, it's been a busy week this week preparing samples for the Live from Ally Pally show, but I have managed to find some time to make this card. I don't often start a card knowing exactly what I want it to look like, but on this occasion I had a very definite idea from the outset.

Here is the card I have made...


I started by cutting a square of card and masking off a strip which I then coloured using distress inks and ink duster brushes. I like using these sometimes as they give a much softer colour than a blending tool.

I then stamped the small teasel stamp in the same colours multiple times in a random design.


I then got rid of my paper mask and stamped the large teasel over the top three times in black memento ink, bending the stalk to get the effect I was after.


A quick sentiment later and it was finished. I chose one of my favourite sentiments, which works so well with any of the beautanicals stamps.


I mounted it on black and then onto a card blank. I love how it turned out and it is exactly how I pictured it. I hope you like it!

See you next week
