"It's a love thang"
The IndigoBlu stamp is stamped five times onto white card using different colours of archival ink each time and heat-embossing with clear, holographic powder. The four panels are then coloured by sponging with distress inks and diecut with different dies, most of them nature-themed.
The frame was originally part of a pack to make windows for dollshouses that I picked up in a charity shop. I sponged it with distress inks and added gold embossing powder to make it look as if the gold had rubbed off in places. I just use up odds and ends of embossing powder for this sort of job, it doesn't need to be pristine.
"Side view showing dimension"
The diecuts are carefully layered to preserve the design so that all the words can be read, and glued with Pinflair for lots of dimension. Finally, the whole thing is lightly sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to tie the layers together.
