I was aiming for a clean fresh feel to this weeks card using subtle tones of blue ink; in this case Broken China Distress Ink.
I die cut a circle from a piece of white card 4.5" x 6.5", placing the circle over the edge of the card and then running through my die cutting machine. I wanted to use this aperture area to showcase my sentiment which has been stamped onto a smaller circle and shaded with Broken China Distress Ink.
I added clouds to the background, adding only a touch of Broken China Ink. I also added some random machine stitching and delicate splatters of paint to the background; I wanted to add layers of interest but nothing too overpowering as I wanted the clouds to be clearly visible.
I stamped the focal image with Black Archival Ink, masked off the image and then added the fence behind. I also machine stitched around the card for added texture.
