Direct to Paper World of Dreams

Swiping ink pads directly on card stock to create a background for this silhouette scares me, but the effect usually turns out fine. Remember that new colours are created when inks are applied over each other. Also, take into consideration that the inks will fade a bit when dry.

Check out Michelle Zindorf, to see a real master of this technique.

-swipe the top two-thirds of the mat with a So Saffron ink pad
-swipe the bottom third with a Soft Sky ink pad
-swipe the overlap with a Pink Pirouette ink pad
-use a sponge dauber to ink the corner with Old Olive ink
-ink the image on a Hello Honey ink pad
-use a sponge dauber to add Soft Suede ink to the tips of the seed heads and the edges of the leaves
-use a sponge dauber to add Mossy Meadow ink to the stems and leaves
-stamp the image on the mat
-cut a 4-1/4 in. length of burlap ribbon down the middle
-to reduce bulk, remove the threads until 3 rows remain beside the stitching
-adhere the frayed edge to the back of the left side of the mat
