Two Techniques


365 Cards Day 224 - Two Techniques ~~Layering & Fussy Cutting to create a foreground and background on the card.

I'm not sure whether I have complied with the rules of the challenge as my layering is stamp layering of a sort, not layering of cut out pieces. I did do fussy cutting though, that dragonfly was eye boggling to cut out and he did lose half a foot in the process. The back ground is brayered and the dragonfly is mounted on dimensionals
All stamps are Clarity Stamps except the grass which is Posh Impressions
Glossy Cardstock from Clarity Stamps
Inks are Adirondack Bottle, Denim and Autumn Sunset and Versafine Onyx Black.
Wings of dragonfly coloured with Copics in blue and green
Low tack masking tape used to mask around the each side of the card
Because I used glossy cardstock the ink has puddled slightly on the boat image.  It's a learning curve and I will know next time to use less
