The paper has a shiny side and a matt side, I chose to work on the matt side as I thought it would take the stamping and colouring better. There are 4 stamps in the set, so I used large acrylic blocks with 2 stamps side-by-side on each, to make the stamping faster and easier to line up. The images were stamped with black Archival ink, which is waterproof, useful as I went on to "paint" the leaves.
The co-ordinating gift card was stamped on Kraft Resist cardstock, painted in the same way and then I blended Aged Mahogany ink around the edges to complete the look. I'm really pleased with the end result and the recipient absolutely loved their one-of-a-kind gift wrap!
Supplies I used included:
