Clematis card

Remember the clematis pictures? Well I worked out how to mount them to make a greetings card 🙂

Mounted picture of clematis

I marked and then cut a rectangular frame (green section), and cut out all the background outside of the frame. I then matted that onto black card with a narrow border. That was then matted onto hand-coloured glossy card with wider margins, before mounting the whole thing onto a square, textured white card. The glossy card was sprayed with Adirondack Color Wash (cranberry, wild plum and denim), then water to merge and activate the colours, and then a sheet of kitchen roll laid onto it and then pulled off leaving the quilted texture in the wet ink. I’m rather pleased with the results 🙂
