Inspiration Cards



These are two inspiration cards , one for Hilda (top) and the other for Ang.
They are on 4" x 6" card. For Hilda's I used strips of ripped co-ordinating papers in nutral colours, including a piece of Leo DV background paper. The edges of each were inked to aged them. Using a very muted colour ink I stamped an image of Leo's Cosmos on to a piece of matching paper and mounted on white handmade paper, tied taffetta around it and mounted onto the card. To finish I used individual letter stamps to spell out COSMOS.
For Ang's I started with a piece of glossy card and dabbed alcohol inks onto it. Using the same colour inks I put a striped effect onto another piece of card and then stamped onto it twice, using stazon ink. One image I mounted onto white card and the other image I cut away both sides, leaving just the centre piece. I folded the cut image down the centre and placed, using silicon over the other image to give a raised effect with out it being 3D'd. I added tiny tags to the bottom of the card using brass brads that I coloured with permanent ink. To finish I stamped the whole image again onto shrink plastic, cut out the individual sections and heated until they shrank, I then attached them with a few jump rings to the corner.
