Having had a few days away, I'm back in my "happy place" crafting again. The sun is shining and all is good in the world!
This card features a Visible Image stamp set and several of their stencils and a whole host of different inks!
I started with a white piece of card and "Milled Lavender" Distress Ink. I put some ink on my glass mat, then lightly spritzed it and then swooshed the white card through the ink. I then used my heat gun to dry the surface before repeating the process with four more Distress Inks: Victorian Veleve, Tea Dye, Weathered Wood and Old Paper.
Next I used "Peat Moss" Ranger Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Seeing Stars" stencil, uising the chequerboard section of the stencil.
I then used "Garden Patina" Ranger Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Strobes" stencil on the left hand side of the card.
After that, I used "Shadow Grey" Ranger Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Strobes" stencil on the top right hand side of the card.
I then used "Cornflower Blue" Ranger Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Breakout" stencil" at the base of the card.
Moving on to the stamping, I used Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink to stamp the bird and words, all part of the Visible Image "Life Is Beautiful" stamp set.
Placing a mask over the bird, I stamped the circles, also part of the Visible Image "Life Is Beautiful" stamp set using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.
I used Van Goch pastel pencils to add depth of colour in areas.
Placing the mask back over the bird and strips of paper over the words, I used Dr PH Martin's "Bleed Proof White Paint" with a fan shaped brush to create splatters across the surface.
Removing the masks, I edged the card in Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink using a finger dabber.
I then used white and black Ranger "Enamel Accents" for extra dots.
Finally, mounting the piece on to navy blue card and then on to a white card blank.
