Hello everyone how nice of you to pop by.
Wow! Success, I have made my first century - this is post number 100 - at one time I thought I would never get there, but taking part in the challenges helps raise the number of posts.
The effect of the layers is achieved by using an acetate template with an aperture in, & sponging colour through it. Then moving it to a different positions & sponging with different colours.
In this card I created the layers first, then stamped the image into the aperture style centre. I didn't like quite so much white in the centre, so I stamped the flower again on a scrap & cut it out to create a mask, then over stamped the focal image with some oriental text. The acetate frame is left in place during this step. Next I highlighted the right hand & lower edges with a grey pencil to add to the illusion of layers.
The inks I used were from a Kaleidocolor pad & I used the same pad for the sentiment.
Once again I am using techniques that I learnt some time ago & have not used much recently. Another old technique that is going to be used a little more again.
More workshop samples to make over the next few days- so please pop back again, & do leave a comment before you leave.
