Hi there. I have a masculine card today for a friend who is 60 and I was very lucky recently to win this fun set of Pink Ink stamps called Crazy Birds so I decided to christen it for this card.
As I don't use kraft card very often I thought I would today, and I stamped the three bird images using Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Metallic Copper Embossing Powder. I then coloured the images using my Inktense Pencils without any added water, and added some ink blending around the edges using Distress Inks - Tea Dye and then Ground Espresso, and I also added more blue around the bird with Salty Ocean DI, to add to the pencil colouring I had already done. Just a tip which I expect a lot of you will know that by colouring with white first before adding the colour it helps to neutralise the brown and allows the true colour to come through. I finished by adding the sentiment and the die cut number using Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink and then I heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss EP. I also added a blue mat before adhering it to a 7" x 5" kraft card base.Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope you'll come back again soon.
