The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
I have had a serious lack of mojo this winter. Karen's challenge on Gingerwood Bulletin Board inspired me to make a bird card for her challenge.
This stamp is unmounted with no name on it. I used a Misti to stamp it onto the white cardstock. I pulled out my neglected Prismacolor pencils and colored the image, then blended it with odorless mineral spirits. My stamped outline was partly obliterated in the coloring process, so I put it back in the Misti and stamped it again with Memories Artprint Brown ink. The Misti sure is nice for this purpose. I cut out the image with my stitched rectangle dies and also cut the yellow paper with a larger size die. I cut the green frames with my trimmer to give a narrow border. This was mounted onto a white card base. The image and the sentiment are mounted on dimensional tape.
