Lavinia Stamps July 2019 Monthly Challenge "Midnight Blue With An Orange Hue" #2

Every month, Lavinia Stamps holds a monthly challenge.  The challenge theme for July is "Midnight Blue With An Orange Hue".

This is the second of three pieces that I have made as part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team to promote this challenge.

I made the first stage of the background for this card some weeks ago.  Using a gelli plate with Colorbox Inks and Brusho paint sprinkled on top.

For the second stage, I used the "Printing With A Stencil" technique, I shared with you a couple of weeks back.  In this instance, I used two shades of ink to make the grid appearance by using Distress Oxide Inks in "Faded Jeans" and "Carved Pumpkin" colours.

Once the Distress Oxide grid was dry, using the Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Indian Flourish" feather.  Using the same ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Wild Vines" around the edge of the card.

I decided that the edges needed to be darker, so I used the Distress Oxide ink in the shade of "Faded Jeans" and then the Versafine Clair ink in the "Twilight" shade to make the very edge of the card darker.
