Coordinating a Card and an ATC

This is the card that I made to go with the ATC that I shared yesterday (see HERE).  As you can see I used the same techniques as for the ATC but changed some of the stamps that I used.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 13.8cm x 13.8cm. Blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress oxide over it with a foam tool.
Add stamping in Chrome Yellow Archival ink using the sonnet stamp from the Mixed Media Journal set.
Stamp into all four corners using the Clarity New Design Club floral corner stamp (#150) in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Colour with Derwent Inktense pencils, blended out with a watercolour brush pen.
Add further stamping to the background using the solid NDC Daisy stamp (#99) in Sunshine Yellow and Butterscotch Adirondack inks.
Go round the stamped corners with a black watercolour pencil and blend out with a watercolour brush pen.
Add one of the Special Day Sentiments into the centre in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
To finish, mat onto black card leaving a narrow border and add to the front of a 14.8cm x 14.8cm white card blank.
This ties in really well with the matching ATC as I used the same techniques and colours for both.
