Color Dare Challenge #452


 This is another make for the

Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme 

I have been having a go at the velveteen technique where a background, stamped white ink on white card, sometimes heat embossed, is over stamped or stencilled with more inks.
One video I have watched is here.

I used a number of different background stamps used with Brilliance Archival in Moonlight White. Some I embossed using clear embossing powder.
On these I used stencils with the marker airbrush.

One tip I picked up in the above video is that it is a good idea to apply the ink to the stamp and then press the card on top of it.
This is a Lost Coast Designs stamp - Fern Background.

For today's card I then over stamped with  three colours and the Close to my Heart stamp set,
Paper Garden. 

I stamped similarly to make two index cards:

On one of these backgrounds I used the Stampin Up Tree Rings stamp.

Hope you will join the Color Dare Challenge...

Happy Crafting!
