For this card, I used the Sherlock Holmes stamp from Carmen's Veranda and the Ledger background stamp from Lost Coast Designs.
I have a box full of Gelli prints that I have made over the past months so I dug around until I found this background page. It's made with yellow, blue, rust, and gold acrylic paints and a couple of different stencils. I love how the little touches of blue appear here and there - that's what often happens if you don't clean the paint off your plate before you add some new colors. You get some of the older paint showing through, which I really like.
I stamped the Ledger background with black StayzOn ink - since it's a painted background regular ink won't dry well. I stamped Sherlock with black ink onto some cream paper and trimmed around the edges, then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I affixed him to the center of my background paper with some black photo corners.
The final step was to layer this with blue paper and stitch around the edges with black thread.
