Two Tone Teasels

Hello everyone, it's not often that I find the time to make something other than Design Team projects these days, but I needed to make my lovely Dad a Birthday card recently, and decided to make him a card using a fabulous set of stamps from Woodware that have been languishing unused in my stash.

I created a blended background using a combination of Scattered Straw and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks, and then using a favourite stencil, I added a patch of stenciling at two opposite corners. I used a baby wipe in the middle of the card to take away colour using the same stencil.

Using the Clear Magic Teasel stamps, I first stamped the images in Potting Shed Archival Ink, and then in Black, creating a depth to the images. I added a lovely large sentiment from Inkylicious to complete the card. My Dad's eyesight is not so good, following two strokes this year, and this visual card was perfect for him.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

What a super design for your Dad & I particularly like the positive & negative effects of that stencil across the blue diagonal. These teasels are a delight too, such graphic images & I love the quirkiness of that bent stem.
