Fern Fronds

Hi, I've been playing with some new dies and alcohol inks.
The bottom frond is inlaid into the base to reduce bulk. I glued the right half of the top fern down and popped the lower fronds on the left hand side up with small foam dots for dimension.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Less is More where it's a colour theme.
color sip

I used stream, lettuce, citrus and clover alcohol inks. The only colour not used is grey, so I hope this is representative enough of the colours to meet the rules.

Materials used:
Memory Box delicate fern die; alcohol inks on glossy card stock; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,

  13. Well DONE on the inlaid ferns. I know that die was bound to be a fiddly one to get back where it belonged, but you did it so perfectly. Liked the way you added dimension to the top fern. Those colors are very sharp against the white too. Really like this card....LOTS! TFS
