Hi everyone. Today one of those cards we never want to have to make for the wife of a lovely gentleman who we knew through a couple of choirs, a male choir that hubby sings with, and another we both sing with on an occasional basis, and who will be greatly missed. I used this Woodware stamp called Going to Seed and a stencil of flying birds bought with some other stencils quite a while ago from The Range.
I started by stamping the flowers using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and then added the birds over the background using Adirondack Stonewashed ink applied with a blending tool. The stencil has a flock of birds but I decided to pick a few of them out and dot them about behind the stamping and in the areas around just to give a random look. I finished with the sentiment stamped with the Chipped Sapphire and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I cut it down and added it to a white 6" square card. I used my stamp positioner as the DI's are not renowned for stamping that clearly without going over with the ink a few times, as the inks are by their nature not really intended to be used in this way, but they work fine if you can repeat stamp. Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
