STAMPIN' UP, SWAN LAKE WITH DIAGONAL STRIPE, THANK YOU CARD

Hi Everyone

Hope you are having a good weekend. As promised I am here with an extra blog post to show you another card I made with the theme "Winged Creatures". Today's card is very different.


Cardbase

Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock A4 (European Size) in half @ 14.9cm [5 7/8"]Score at 10.5cm [4 1/8"]
Cut a piece of Whisper White card 4" x 5"
Cut a strip of Silver Foil 4" x 1/2" 

  • On a piece of watercolour paper, stamp the Swan in Smoky Slate, and fill in with the aquapainter & smoky slate ink 
  • Using an aquapainter with Soft Sky ink colourwash below the Swan. 
  • Using the dots from Playful Backgrounds stamp dots on top of the water in Bermuda Bay,

TIP : Ink the stamp, stamp on scrap paper then using what is left on the stamp, stamp onto the colourwash, this is called second generation or shadow stamping and gives a softer effect. It is great for adding visual layering.
  • Cut then Swan image out with an oval framelit and layer onto a slightly larger oval with a decorative edge cut out in silver foil. Stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate onto the Whisper White panel which you have criss crossed with ribbon, adhered at the back.
  • Stamp the swam image onto another piece of watercolor paper, with the aquapainter fill in the wing slightly with smoky slate ink and cut out the wing only. Using a dimensional pop it up over the wing of the  original stamped swan and embellish with rhinestones.
  • Using Bermuda Bay Ink and the Diagonal Stripe Stamp, stamp approx. two thirds of the cardfront.
  • Adhere the silver foil strip along the edge of the Whisper White panel & stick to the cardfront.
There you have it. 

Hope you have enjoyed this quick tutorial.
