tangled birch

Two samples using the lovely new tangled birch stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
First card uses a spray starch and mica powder background , which had been lying around for a while but seemed to fit the sunset.
the sky was created with distress inks in various blues and purples, with wild honey and spiced marmalade for the sun.Trees coloured with watercolour pencil.

For this one, the trees were stamped with black versafine ink, and once it was dry I used masking fluid over the image.
Distress inks sponged over the sky, again a variety of blues and purples, with wild honey for the moon, and a bit of black soot added to the sky and the ground.
Once it was all dry, rub off the masking fluid and leave the trees white,
I tore the edges to leave a rough white edge, andded a black mat with rounded edges.
The card edges were sponged with broken china ink, and the top branches from the stamp stamped randomly round the edges with broken china.
