Here is a little matted plate I made using a base of Kraft card. I have stamped, used Distress Inks, stencils & Glossy Accents. Loving the warm colours more so when it's so cold outside.
I have used a squares and a numbers stencil along with Distress Inks in spiced marmalade, mustard seed and vintage photo to produce the background by gradually building up layers through the stencils until happy. All stamping was done with Archival black ink using stamps from Papermania Urban plates to produce the keyplate, key, music plate, background seedheads and sentiment.
The key and keyplate were covered with Versamark ink and heat embossed with stardust embossing powder which add a transparent iridescent finish and these were mounted on foam pads. Some of the coloured background squares were treated with Glossy Accents to add more dimension.
Finally the greetings plate was backed with a piece of orange grosgrain ribbon and mounted on foam pads.
