Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 4 of DeNami’s Sneak Peek Week on my blog! The theme for today is Outdoor Adventures. For this project I decided to do a nice simple card. As you can tell, I like simple cards that don’t take long to make!
Ever since I found the best cardstock for ink blending, I have been obsessed with ink blending! For me the best cardstock is Strathmore Bristol Smooth. The smooth surface really allows the ink to go on easy and blend easily as well. Now, I have not tried ink blending with other inks besides the Distress Inks but I have a feeling this cardstock will work well with other inks. To create this card, I stamped the owl with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and very,very carefully blended the sky and grass background around the owl. In hind sight I should have created a mask for the owl and then did the ink blending but I REALLY hate to fussy cut and I was being lazy. After I blended the background, I sprayed it with the Distress Sprayer filled with water and picked up the water with a clean paper towel to get the splatter effect. Next, I colored in the owl with Copic markers and stamped the greeting in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. After that, I die cut the panel with a Mama Elephant Framed Tags Madison Avenue frame die and kept the frame piece to layer the yellow polka dot frame on top of to add a little dimension to the card. I adhered the frames with Tombow Lquid Gel glue to the A2 card base and used Tombow Extreme Adhesive for the panel. This card will make anyone smile! See you tomorrow!
