For the Birds
I had a chance to create another Clean and Simple (CAS) Mixed Media card using the Stamplorations™ For the Birds Clear Stamp set along with the CAS(E) ThisSketch #233 Sketch Challenge along with the AAA Cards CAS Game #95 Rainbow and the Stamplorations™ Never Ending "Anything Goes" Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- gorgeous examples from their Design Teams as well as in their galleries!
To create this card:
1). Die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Hillside Borders Die, trim the edges and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
2). De-static the upper panel with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from For The Birds with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
3). Mount the entire panel onto the white card base.
4). Ink the For the Birds image with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Color the image using Zig® Clean Color Real Brush Markers, use an AquaPainter™ (water brush) to soften and blend the color, fussy cut and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam. Use a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the bird image.
5). Finish off the card with a few drops of Nuvo™ Jewel Drops- Rosewater, Pale Periwinkle and Orange Marmalade.
