Dendritic Monoprint example

Dendritic Monoprint example
I made several background samples with the dendritic technique since I was have lots of fun. And I wanted to share a sample (not my swap share) since I couldn't find card samples on line. While I love the metallic silver in the background do know my it is metallic gold in real life. The shapes are solid with many thin lines within the shapes...lots of fine detail. The metallic gold is over top of a blue background that dried before I got a good print.

I embellished the diecuts with add pen and ink for the eye, beak and berries. I stamped for added dimension on the evergreens. I cut the background with the Lawn Fawns dotted rectangle die and accented it with the stardust gellyroll pen-best initial view is on left edge below the greens. I like the quiet sparkle all around. How do you make dotted edges more noticeable?

If you are too busy to play in this challenge now you may want to think about adding it to your "To try in 2017" list.

The dendritic technique made a beautiful icy background for your bird! I really like the stamping on the pine and the extra pen work. Beautiful card! I really appreciate you posting this as I too was having trouble finding finished projects with this technique.

That is a very unique background! Really cool Christmas card!

Love this! The background looks fabulous! Love the dies you used too. I make my stitched edges stand out more by using a colored fine point pen and coloring in each stitch! Very Happy

Wow, your background dendritic technique turned out beautifully. I love the metalic silver against the blue really pops. Cute dies too.
