Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well on this (rather cold and windy but sunny) Wednesday. I have a card to share today where I'd like to say I was channeling my inner Heather Telford. It's not quite a work of art like her cards are but I'm quite pleased with it. :-). Take a look...
So, first I masked off a rectangular area on my cardstock. I like to use some old washi tape as it's not too sticky and peels off easy. I have one that has a pattern I don't care for so it's what I use. :-). I cut a circle from a post it note (they work well for masking as they are low tack and are quite thin) and positioned it on the top left corner of my rectangle. Then I sponged my inks on. For this I used StazOn (sunflower yellow, blazing red, royal purple, azure) because I find the colour are really vibrant and solid when sponging. They do have a tendency to eat away at the sponge so use ones you don't mind throwing away after. I use makeup sponges cause they are really inexpensive. Once my sponging was done, I took off my circle mask and added some dark grey with my Spectrum Noir marker then blended it with the blender pen making my moon. Then I inked up my stamp (Winter Ledge by Penny Black) with black ink. I removed my washi tape and trimmed my panel which I matted with black cardstock. I mounted it on my white card base with foam dots. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (from Trendy Feathers set by STAMPlorations). This Penny Black stamp is really awesome. This is actually only a portion of it. They've got lots of great branch stamps. :-)
I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
Penny Black and More - anything goes
STAMPlorations - stamps and layers. I've got some layers of ink as well as paper layers.
Well, that's it for now. Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
