Clarity challenge 39 - Anything Goes

I used my blending tools and Pesto, Lettuce and Espresso inks to make the background.  I then stamped randomly on the background with water using the script stamp from the Journalling set to add some texture.  I used the script stamp again and second generation of espresso to stamp again.
The bird stamp, which I love, is stamped with Versamark and then embossed in black.  I lifted some of the ink from the birds with a small brush and water although this does not show up too well.
To make the border strip I again used the script stamp.  This time using black Archival and brushing over lightly with Lettuce and Espresso.
Finishing touches are:  edging the border strip with a black fineliner, mounting the panel on black, stamping the sentiment, assembling the card.

  5. Great stamping; I like the tie-up between the script in the background on your main image and as a margin focal point. Best wishes in the Clarity challenge. ;~}
