His Wings- Sending Prayers Your Way
Wow! This week has been a hectic one but I finally had a chance to relax and create a card using the Creative Worship stamp set, His Wings (designed by Korin Sutherland) along with Floral Greetings (designed by Graciellie Design) both available from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I used the Splitcoaststampers CC645 "Delightfully Wild in the Pacific" Color Challenge for the design and will also be participating in the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). On a piece of white cardstock, scribble yellow, green and blue color with a Zig® Clean Color Brush Marker, spritz with water and heat set with a heat tool. Once the panel has thoroughly dried, de-static with an embossing powder tool, stamp the feathers from the His Wings stamp set with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Add a bit more color as needed (I also added additional blue with a Stampin’ Write Pacific Point Marker).
2). Once the embossing has cooled, fussy- cut the feathers (cutting into the design a bit) and set aside.
3). De-static a scrap piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the bird image from His Wings with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, heat emboss with clear embossing powder and once cooled, fussy-cut the image.
4). On a piece of Strathmore® Bristol Smooth paper, apply the same three colors using the Zig® Clean Color Brush Markers, spritz with water and heat set with a heat tool. Drop additional water onto the panel, press a paper towel to soak up the water and some of the ink, heat with the heat tool to dry.
5). Once you are satisfied with the background, de-static the panel near the bottom with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Floral Greetings usingVersafine™ Onyx Black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim the panel, mount onto black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the white card base.
6). Add the feathers directly to the card front and mount the bird with dimensional foam.
7). Finish off the card with Nuvo™ Jewel Crystal Drops and use an Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen to add a few dots to the top feather.
