Tomorrow is a Mystery by Sioux Jenneys

Hi all! These posts are really coming around quickly this year! LOL So I'm here to share a card this time, one that is suitable for those guys in your life :)

It's a one layer card and involves no masking of images at all!!! Simples ;)

1. This card uses the principle of colours nearer to you  being darker than colours that are further away to achieve the effect, and I started with the arch image from the architecture plate 1 inked up with Distress Ink scattered straw and lightly inked on the edges with Distress Ink brushed corduroy stamped in the middle of a 12 x 12 cm square of card.

2. The sentiment from jounaling words 3 was stamped over the top in Archival black.

3. The columns, also from the architecture plate 1, were stamped in Distress Ink vintage photo, the edges of the square tattered and aged with Distress Ink scattered straw and a touch of Distress Ink vintage photo

4. The words "arch" and "column" from the architecture plate were stamped all around the edge with Distress Ink antique linen, no need for masking at all as the lighter colour of ink makes it appear to be behind the other stamping. As I said......simples! ;)

5. Attach this to a 13.5 x 13.5 cm card blank

See you again soon! :)
xoxo Sioux
