I created the background card by distressing with Adirondack Earth tones: Butterscotch, terra-cotta, lettuce, meadow and oregano. I stenciled the terra-cotta some more through sequin waste. If you can get hold of some of this it is brilliant for adding an extra layer/dimension.
Then I used a feather stamp from Elusive images. I inked it with Cranberry Adirondack and stamped it off first on scrap paper so the image would not be too strong. I chose this stamp as it echos the shape of the paisley chipboard.
The chipboard was embossed or glittered with sprinkle and sparkle powders fro Joanna Sheen.
Gems to finish off.
This was matted onto black silk paper and then onto a card half covered with patterned paper.
