Another new Inkylicious stamp

I needed a birthday card for a very dear friend, so I decided to ink up a new Inkylicious stamp. This one is called Jasmin Garden. I ink dusted the background with Adirondack Peach Bellini, mountain rose, Memento lilac posies and grape Jelly. I then decoupaged the butterflies/ moths and coloured those with gelly roll sparkle pens. This panel was layered on a dark purple panel. The base card was dusted with the same inks and stamped with some similar flower silhouettes from the Summer Morn stamp set. I had intended mounting the panel in the centre, but it didn't look right, so I moved it until the horizons met and decided to stick it there! Off centre, but better than in the middle! What do you think? I went round the jasmin garden stamp frame with a lilac promarker and added faux stitching to the dark purple layer with the gelly roll pen.

  2. Off centre works, it's balanced by the greeting in the other corner, I can see why centred wouldn't look right.
    Beautiful card!

  4. Wow, this one is a real stunner Sally! I love the off centre panel and, in fact, I do more off centre myself than centred usually. Actually, when I first looked at this card I thought you had just placed a frame over a section of the background because you married up the horizons so well. Love the pretty moths/butterflies. Coincidence but I recently rediscovered my Sakura gelly roll sparkle pens .... had forgotten how much I love them for subtle sparkle.

  7. Looks brilliant - as if you're looking through a frame. Thought initially you'd made a scene & then added the frame etc….to look through. No it wouldn't look right at all in the centre - the hills meet beautifully this way.
