This card has been delivered so now I can blog it. It was made using John Nextdoor's media plates which I absolutely love playing with.
I started by placing the media plate on the stamp press and inking it up with Izink dye inks, three colours all blended with the brayer.
I stamped the white card, used the brayer again, no more ink, and stamped again just to get a good covering.
With just a little more ink dabbed on around the edge of the media plate, using a blending egg, inking the oval was finished. The media plate was cleaned off gently with a soft cloth to remove excess ink.
Then using a stencil over the media plate I used a blending egg to add colour to it.
The stencil was removed and the pattern on the plate was then stamped onto the previously inked oval.
Once dry I used a cat silhouette stamp by Lavinia Stamps and a greeting from Woodware to finish off the image panel. A stamp press is a must for silhouettes, it rarely works well the first time so being able to stamp more than once in exactly the same spot is fantastic.
Once the image panel was dry I matted and layered it with a hint of purple between the black and white before mounting it on a white card blank.
