Artistic Etchings and Medallion card......

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by again..... Oh, and a very Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in the UK! Here is today's creation...

I made the background a while ago... It just kept evolving the more I played, and I was using colours I don't usually grab for and I liked it but didn't know what to do with it to take it to the "next level", do you know what I mean? So it stayed half finished until I knew how I wanted to complete it. It reminds me of stained glass windows and I found myself just staring at it and smiling!

Here is a close up.

I used some of the discarded offcut strips to decorated the inside of the card.

 I didn't want the sentiment to out shine or stand out too much from the gorgeous effect the medallion stamp had created so I used the Tiny Tag stamp set an punch to finish it off subtly, I think it worked well.

Background stamps - Medallion, and Artistic Etchings
Sentiment - Tiny Tags
Inks - Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy
