Combining different kind of inks I created a background of blasting purple / violet color shades to base a mix-media project where each element stands from the other. The Walnut Ink lowers the intense color of Fireworks! Lilac posies, downgrading the attention on the background, while it serves nicely to use the darker stamped numbers on it.
The owl is embossed with white Imagine embossing powder on a Memento Grape jelly back side colored piece of tracing paper that blurs the base paper giving more contrast to the design.
The SHEET metal used enhance the owl of the paper, adds shine, detail and covers the glued feathers and wires.
If you place the chipboard words on the feathers, the A4 page can be cutted in 10x7in, folded in half and make a card, or be adjusted to make a cover on a book.
