Tea Tuesday with Kia

Berry Bramble Joyful

 When I was thinking about a card to do for today's post I knew I wanted to use Black Soot Distress Ink. When picking a stamp to use I thought this Berry Bramble from Penny Black would be perfect.

This is a longer post than normal as I have included a picture tutorial explaining the card process I did.

Using Arches cold press watercolour paper I first blended on the Distress Inks using Iced Spruce, then added in the Black Soot. To brighten up the middle I painted in some Dr. P. Martins Bleed Proof ink and with my paint brush blended it out toward the edges, then splattered with water.

In my Misti (original) using Ink on 3 Fade Out ink I stamped the image a couple of times. With my aqua brush and bleach I then coloured the berries with the bleach and went over them with clear water. 
Once dry I added my colour by colouring the stamp and transferring the colour with the door. I am using Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens in seasonal colours to do this, and
adding darker colours for blending.
As I am doing a 3.5 x 8.5 card I need to rig something up to add to the bottom of my card. I got out my Stay-tion and using the grid lines and magnets set up my mini Misti and used the top of the door for my stamp. I just need to ensure I held the Misti in place, using the grid lines as I stamped. It worked perfectly for me. 
Once finished with the colouring I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 
Using my fan brush I added splatters of white acrylic paint and waited for the paint to dry before moving on to adding Distress Micro Glaze to the card and buffing with a clean cloth.
I find this enhances the colour nicely. I then attached the panel to a black card base and added Nuvo Glitter Drops in Silver Glitter to finish.

Thank you for joining me today.
