Red, Orange and Yellow Silhouette Wild Carrot

This card was inspired by an article in the October issue of Craft Stamper Magazine last year. I've been meaning to have a go at it for a while and finally got around to it!!  Ireally like the effect and I think I'll be making more of these in different colour combos. Might even try some with some moons!!

I've just discovered the article was by  the very talented Joanne Wardle - have a look at her amazing blog here.

An area of the card blank was masked off and the Fired Brick, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw Distress Inks from Tim Holtz were added using Cut 'n' Dry foam.


The masks were removed and the Wild Carrot and silhouette butterfly images both from the Inkadinkado Meadow stamp set, were stamped over the panel using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink.


The sentiment, made using the Anniversary stamp and Happy from the Happy Birthday stamp from the Papermania Mix & Match Scrolls and Sentiments stamp set, were stamped in the corner also using the Onyx Black ink.

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