Today's card was published in April's Scrap and Stamp Arts Magazine. I love today's card so much that I hope you do too.
I stamp the sentiment with bird stamp by Deep Red Stamps with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. I took some Fantasticks and colored it the areas you see below and love the results. It was at this time that I realized that the rest of the image needed to be inked to be better visualized. So I applied the Pumice Stone distress ink with a ink blending tool to darken the cardstock. It did just that and I was happy with the way the distress ink left a halo effect around the two parts. I think the white space is a beautiful exaggeration of the bird and the flower to the right.
Once the image was dry I matted it onto a piece of Die Cuts with a View purple cardstock. The patterned paper is by Quick Quotes and it also has been matted onto a piece of purple cardstock. The card itself is a little bit bigger with a width of 6 inches by 4.25 inches.
This Deep Red Stamps can be purchased at the Deep Red Stamps online store.
Thanks for looking.
