Essence of Nature CD by Artilicious

This eagerly anticipated Cd arrived this morning... so I've been having a play! Not sure I've done any of these fabulous DP justice but thought I'd share with you any way.. 

backing papers from the CD 
Tree stamp from Elusive Images Tall Trees set
poem from Elusive Images natures peace set
Meadow flower from Elusive Images Wild Meadow
Inks used Memories black
Adirondack cabin fever
Distress .Peeled paint.
Stazon black

Images and poem stamped onto tissue paper so that the  gorgeous DP could be seen through it.  It was a mistake to use distress ink cos when I applied  PVA the ink bled a bit..( picture 3 ) although I quite like the result. The same thing happened when I used Adirondack ink.. may be I was just too inpatient and   didn't give the inks time to dry. The Stazon worked , there's a surprise, but I don't have lots of colours... more on the wish list! 
Image 3 has just been left ... not sure what to do with it ..yet!
 One and three have been printed onto hammered card. I thought it might look like a water colour, had to persuade the printer to accept it! :)

PS I know the poem is wonky! I was worried about tearing the tissue paper... did you read what I just said?!     ... it's only paper Sue.. you should've done it again!

You were lucky getting your CD this morning - my post doesn't come until well after lunch and then I was out so haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I'm aiming to look as soon as I've caught up with messages and blogs though. I like what you have done so far. I had trouble with PVA and tissue when trying to apply to a canvas which I had inked with dye inks so I reckon we will have to stick to permanent inks

gosh, you were quick off the mark Sue! the cards are lovely, love those muted colours.
Adirondack are dye inks, like the DIs - you would need to use a pigment ink like versacolour if you don't want to use stazon next time........

Wonderful cards, and those words and images could be useful for the card you have to make with my stamps
