On a 4.5″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White card stock, pounced Bashful Blue ink with a sponge all over the card stock.
Stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! set “Friends 24-7” by loading with Going Gray ink and then tapping my Basic Black ink pad on the bottom half of the stamp before stamping it.
I used my heat gun to dry the ink on the card stock and then used my Embossing buddy on the card stock also. This was to make sure that the embossing powder in the next steps will not stick to the bird image or the blue ink that was sponged on.
Stamped the Flower stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set “Baroque Motifs” with Versamark only and then heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Stamped the Flourish from the “Baroque Motifs” using Versamark only. Heat embossed the flourish using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Pounced on Tempting Turquoise ink using a sponge.
Pounced on Brilliant Blue ink using a sponge.
Pounced on Night of Navy ink with a sponge.
Pounced on Basic Black ink using a sponge.
Wiped the ink off of the embossed images using cotton towel.
Stamped the Flourish from the “Friends 24-7” set using Basic Black ink on the bottom of the card stock a few times.
Stamped a couple of the little flowers from the set “Baroque Motifs” using Brilliant Blue ink.
Added Sahara Sand marker to the bird.
Added a little Bashful Blue marker to the bird.
Added a little Not Quite Navy to the birds wing and underside. This left a few hard lines, so to tone things down, went over the bird image again with the Sahara Sand marker.
Added Basic Black marker to the wing,head and tail. Also added some sketchy lines of White Gel Pen to the birds head, chest and a tiny bit to the back.
Punched a small Tempting Turquoise flower for the center of my embossed flower. Added a Night of Navy brad to the center.
Traced the underside of the flourish with a Not Quite Navy marker to add a shadow to it. Wiped the marker off of the embossed image, where went over it.
Using the Spiral punch, punched the edge of a 5″ x 1.5″ piece of Brilliant Blue.
Stamped the flourish image with Basic Black ink three times across the top of the card stock. Stamped a few of the same image really lightly further down the card stock.
Assembled the card using a 5″ x 6.5″ piece of Sahara Sand as the base of my card front. Added a Bashful Blue ribbon to the front.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
I hope you try layering and building up ink to get some depth in your projects.
May your day be one filled with peace and serentity.
