A friend of mine is in the outback of Australia, living his dream and I wanted to make a card that reflects the colours of the outback and the journey he is on….( he isn’t a suit guy…but it’s the only male stamp I had! )
I have had a real challenge with this one…It was great fun doing the background (starting with white card) and added heaps of DI ~ Vintage, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Broken China and edged with Black Soot…I really wanted to highlight the silhouette feel of the card. You know, I absolutely love how the ranger inks blend together so well and you can do anything with them. I then overstamped with some writing, but used the background colours to ink it up with. The birds are from Tim’s collection…and I partially stamped them, die cut them and used my new UTEE and cracked it…then added it (raised on foam) above the image on the card. (gee, did that make sense?) ~ so, like a hand made embellishment I guess.  the writing is aged photcopy paper, using the same inks again, scrunching, spraying, ironing and ripping…and Black Soot around the edge to make it pop a little….Maybe good for a father’s day card???
