Coral, Red and Brown Visage Eyes

I really liked the effect of the first card I made using this stamp so I decided to have a go at a new one, this time using more muted colours.

The Visage Eyes image, from The Stamp Man/Craft Stamper magazine was stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink and distressed with ColorBox Alabaster Fluid Chalk ink. This was matted onto red and brown paper.


A length of the cream stitched satin ribbon, from the Chatterbox Chocolate ribbon pack was wrapped around a panel of the coral circles paper, from the K&Co McKenna paper pad and then matted onto the red and brown paper.

A small panel of the cream floral paper, from the same paper pad, was also matted up and layered up with the image panel.

Cream self-adhesive pearls, from the Hobby House Chocolate Heaven pack, were added in the bottom right corner of the coral paper and in the top left corner of the cream patterned paper.

Here are the blog challenges I am entering this card into:
