Trellis and Vine

Last Wednesday on WOYWW, I showed on my desk the beginning of a design using a Dylusions stencil and a stamp I've had for ages that could pass for a vine. Here is the first completed card - I enjoyed refining it and feel certain there are more to come.

Trellis and Vine
The background is applied to hammered card stock with Distress salty ocean and mowed lawn. I used both masking and the stencil for this.

The main vine image diagonally across the card is embossed with Detail Black, coloured with Twinks and Liquid Pearls Flamingo. The other vines are stamped with Memento London Fog to make them recede and coloured with Lyra crayons. I edged the piece with mowed lawn then matted on light green metallic card.

Happy days,

Hi Ros, I love the composition of your card and the way you have done the berries. Those DIs work so well together too and your card is beautiful. A x
