Ok, lets start with Card 1. This is my Fathers Day card. One of my girls will give it to their Dad. I decided I wanted it to look like we were looking through a boat window at the scene. So.. . . . . . . .
So first I need to make the Window Rim.
Then I stamped and colored the image.
I used several stamps and using a lighter grey ink, stamped them on to the background. Then using a black ink, stamped the bird and heat embossed in clear. Colored the whole scene with copics. Added some black inking to give definition.
Here is the final, with inking and a sentiment. Signed my name under the bank with the year.
This panel is then adhered to the inside of the card.
Strong and masculine!!
Time to play with those Oxides. It is a love hate relationship, but the more I play the better I like them. They have some properties that make them a challenge as well as fun.
I started by inking a 110# piece of card stock.
The oxides blend very well. This is the background for Card 2, used the same technique for Card 3 but with different colors. I taped this down. I did not want any movement.
sprayed the backside of the stencil with water. until wet, but not dripping and placed over the inked paper. Payed a paper towel on top to catch any extra water and . . . . . . . . Drum Roll!!!!!
Words in the background. Amazing!!!
Mounted on a white mat, a green card base. Added some gold thread, an embellishment. Finished off with a sentiment stamped and embossed in gold. Simple but stunning!!
Ok Card 3:
Having so much fun with the Oxides, I pressed on.
Stamped the tree image in Versamark and embossed in white. Inked and blended with idea of hills, water and sky.
I used water to distress, tried to run it through my MINC to remove embossing powder and made a mess. Ok, redo, no water, just a slight mist (2 feet away) to set the ink and no MINC. I am thinking the ink causes the paper to stick, probably wasn't dry, I must remember this ink takes forever to get completely dry. Will try again with this thought another time!!. All that was left was to trim it down to A2 mat size.
Lastly, I die cut a thanks from white card stock added ribbon and rhinestones, Perfect!!! Unisex thank you card.
Thats it for me. Your next stop is Cheryl
