Another CAS23 Card, Asian Inspired
This card was inspired by Ando Hiroshige's untitled piece at art.com. I masked the border with large post-it notes and used a stipple brush to create the blue background. I left the mask in place, stamped the bamboo and dragonflies, then stamped the sentiment (Double Happiness), which came out crooked. ARGH! So I stamped it again on a scrap of cardstock, cut it out, and layered it over the mistake. Ahhhh. Much better.
Hope you like this one. I did, and made a bunch of other cards using the background technique. Look for them in an upcoming post.
stamps: Hero Arts, sentiment unknown
cardstock: PTI white
ink: Memories soft stone, Versamagic hint of pesto, dark brown
