January 2014 Workshop # 2

Hi ho Bloggers and followers.
This is my second sample
for my first Workshop of 2014.
Saturday 11th January. Rochester Kent.
This card sample showcases a fabulous stamp from 
I'll update all my sample posts with details 
regarding the techniques I used, on Monday 13th.
Back tomorrow with the last sample.
Update on the technique used for this card.
The Clematis Tower Stamp from Oak House Studios 
was stamped onto the reverse, white side, of some Centura Pearl card stock with Black Archival Ink. 
I painted the flowers with Masking Fluid ( use an OLD paint brush!) then left it to dry for an hour or two before blending distress inks over the top. I dabbed the background here and there with a baby wipe, to remove some of the inks for added texture.
When the colours are dry, rub off the masking fluid, using your finger, from the flower heads, to reveal the white card stock underneath. More Flower were stamped onto plain,white card then cut out and layered on top.
