I am liking these Chapel Road Artstamps, created an inky background with big and juicy foliage ink on Clarity cardstock.
Then used memento black to stamp out the dragonflies, and also the sentiment from another set of Chapel Road stamps.
Made sure the ink was dry and then took out some of the ink from the dragonflies wings, with a fine paintbrush and water.
Used the off cuts to make a ribbon across the card. I like the rich colour of this one.
The card on the right is made by using the same stamps and inks, but was stamped out onto 160gsm text and graphic paper, which the ink likes to sink into, hence giving it a more faded look. Quite like but prefer the richness of colour in the first card.
