Nature Silhouettes - Thinking of You
I had a chance to create a few cards this past weekend and am finally getting an opportunity to post them. This card was designed with three different Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps- Long Stem Silhouettes, Nature Silhouettes and Nature Silhouettes 2 (all designed by Korin Sutherland).
I decided to keep this card Clean and Simple (CAS) for the September CAS Watercolour "Silhouette" Challenge and the Watercolor Cooler #134 “Anything Goes”Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). For the background- tap a Distress Oxide Twisted Citron ink pad onto the mat, lightly spritz with water, press a piece of white cardstock into the ink, lift up, press again and dry with a heat tool. Continue to build up the layers using Worn Lipstick and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.
2). Once the panel has thoroughly dried, ink the silhouette images from NatureSilhouettes and Nature Silhouettes 2 with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto the panel (lining up at the bottom) and heat set with the heat tool. Trim the panel and mount onto black cardstock.
3). Ink the bird image from Nature Silhouettes 2 with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, heat emboss with clear embossing powder and once the embossing has cooled, fussy-cut the image.
4). Ink the sentiment from Long Stem Silhouettes using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.
5). Add the landscape panel to the card front, adhere the entire card front onto a white card base and mount the bird with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
