Today's Manly Monday card for me features a scene stamp by Stamp N Plus. I stamped it with Hero Arts black ink onto Ranger's Specialty Stamping paper. When I first stamped it I was like...umm, it's still really wet and I can't do anything with it. So I let it dry over night and when I came back to it, it looked the same-wet. I braved it out and decided to try inking the image with distress ink and an ink blender both by Ranger. It worked out. I added a little bit of green around the horizon and a little in the water so the sky and water didn't like too much alike. I took a Ranger nib and some brown distress ink for the body of the buck. After I added the color I sprayed the paper with water and die cut it with a Spellbinders die.
I started with a piece of Fancy Pants patterned paper and taped on a piece of black cardstock by Recollections. The next layer is a piece of blue Coredinations cardstock and then the image cardstock on top of that. Then the birthday die cut is by Papertrey Ink, wish stamp by Fiskars, ink by Hero Arts and a brad by Stampin Up.
Thanks for looking.
