Caseing Ksenija

Good evening and welcome to a post sharing a card made for this week's challenge over at ATSM.
This week it is our theme of -


On this card I made my mark using stamping, ink blending and painting.

I took inspiration from the colours at Altenew and the pretty card of Ksenija at Time Out.
On a panel of off white card I stamped three branches from the Altenew Beautiful Day set in Rich Cocoa Memento ink. Using a water brush I pulled the ink from the stamped leaves into the centers, adding extra where needed. The small blooms were coloured with Copics and a sentiment was added, also in Rich Cocoa. My base card was inked with Fossilized Amber DI then over stamped with the tiny leaf stamp that matches the branch in the same DI. The small panel was then added lifting it up on pads.
For more mark making inspiration check out the rest of the team here.

I'd like to join in over at -
