Hi Folks, here's a sample using the Fantasy Woodland tree set again. I've stamped the image of an orange tree onto some Prima Firefly paper, and coloured it with pencils. As it is a fantasy tree, I have used my own colour scheme, and so the fruit have become a rather fetching plum colour! I then edged the paper with Verdigris embossing powder.
For the background, I used a deep purple iridescent card, which I embossed, and then painted with Vintaj patina paint. Once it was dry, I rubbed some of the paint back, to reveal the dark card underneath, to give the feeling of old lead. I added a word on a label made from the Firefly paper again, and some burgundy satin ribbon.
This is the first time that I have used these paints. I had them set aside to use with metal, but they work really well on card, so I'll definitely use them again this way.
