OK - let's get onto today's card. I actually made this one a couple of weeks ago, so I can't recall all the ink colours that I used. But I can tell you how I made it.
- To make the watercolour background I tapped blue and green ink pads onto a piece of window sheet. Then I spritzed the ink with water until it blended in together a little bit and pressed it onto whisper white card stock and set aside to dry. Once dry I adhered this an Old Olive card base.
- I stamped the expression from the "Me = Grateful" stamp set using Versamark ink and embossed in silver. I used my markers to colour in the letters.
- The hummingbird is from the "Picture Perfect" stamp set - oh my gosh, this is such a gorgeous set. But I'll be honest, the hummingbird image (which has 4 stamps layered ontop of each other) is a wee bit tricky to use. But once you practise with it and get the hang of it it becomes easier. I stamped the hummingbird twice - once on the whisper white layer and another so that I could cut out a wing and the tail, which I attached to the main image with glue dots and a tiny bit of a dimensional.
- A few sequins and bakers twine (and some dazzling diamonds glitter) finished the card!
Links by TheseAreMyStamps.comIt was a lot of fun to make this card and I'll do a video for you featuring the water colour background. I had actually meant to make a video last week but didn't get to it - so I promise I'll make one asap. Today I'm going to tackle organizing my stamp studio - it's still a work in progress as I continue to unpack and set it all up. I realized I needed more shelving so I picked up a great bookshelf a couple of days ago, so I'm going to put on some tunes, make a tea and get at it!
Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
