Learning to layer

This is a quick post to show you my layering greeting card.

Layering is difficult for me and only because I have not done a lot of it...so practice makes perfect they say. of course I used a Wendy Vecchi stamp set..Art by the number LCs005
I ran the distress ink tye dye over the card and stamped the measurement large stamp from left to right  and then the border stamps on left and right bottom. At this point I use white gesso and pasted in some simple art"stamp" looking cut outs.

I brushed over the "peacock feathers" stain and dabbed a few places at random with barn door stain.

after adhering the cut out stamp picture images I am not sure where i got them..I gesso(ed) over that.anything with a red image I kept the gesso off. I then stamped with the flower from The set of stamps from studio 490

I penciled in red with my pencils from Ike the flower and leaves my wonderful PRISMACOLOR pencils  .
Many of you from my other groups may ask who is Ike...well she is a wonderful friend ,I love like a sister...I met her at http://www.smearedink.com/
and you can see some of her awesome art also at  http://www.ikesart.com/#!__digital-art-stamps
I sprayed some wonderful Dylusions mica spray in the right top corner and added a stamp the lady in the heart from Involke Arts. http://invokearts.com/
Then I stamped in the sentiment from the stamp set..and could not resist the numbers from my Tim holtz set.

I hope this makes a little bit of sense to you ..anyway here it is..and thanks for stopping in.
