Medallion Strength

Something a little different today.  I wanted to have a play at layering images and really had no plan in mind so just went for it.

I stamped the large Medallion in Old Olive (I used my Brayer to apply the ink directly onto the stamp) and stamped off the edge of some Whisper White.  Then cut a rough mask to cover it.  Then I stamped the words from Strength & Hope in Pear Pizzazz, sometimes stamping off the page first.  I decided to use the Rock and Roll technique on the butterfly.  It was stamped in Pretty in Pink then rolled in Night of Navy.  The scroll, in Pear Pizzazz, was used to fill in the rest.  I then lightly sponged in some of the areas with Pear Pizzazz and Pretty in Pink using my Sponge Daubers.   The center panel was mounted onto Night of Navy before attaching to a rectangle of Old Olive which in turn was attached to the Pear Pizzazz card base.

Finally I stamped the H in Old Olive and punched out using the 1 1/4" circle punch and matted it onto Night of Navy punched using the 1 3/8" circle punch.

It's fun just to have a play sometimes and see where it leads you.  Have a go!
