Stamp, In, Paper (SIP) Challenge 51 - Sunsets
Good morning everyone! Like so many other places across the globe, we are having the strangest weather here. This is our dry season when construction happens all over the place because there is no rain. Yet today is the first day with sun after 10 days of rain. And winter here is in July but it feels like it started in April. Woke up today with 43F!! No heat in the house so not happy. But it will warm up soon.
Today's card is for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 51 - Sunsets!
I really thought that this was a great idea for a challenge and ran to grab my distress inks to get this idea out of my head.
I started with an A2 top folding white card base. Then I grabbed another piece of cardstock (a little bigger than my image), and applied distress inks to the front. Squeezed Lemonade on the bottom, Victorian Velvet in the middle, and Dusty Concord at the top. After blending them all in, I think I got a pretty good "sunset" look.
Next I stamped my image, Winter Tree Pattern (K5814) by Hero Arts, with Versamark and white embossing powder in the center of my sunset. Make sure your distress inks are fully dry before applying the embossing powder!
Next, I trimmed my image to 2 3/4" x 3 1/2", cut a piece of purple cardstock to 2 7/8" x 3 5/8", and adhered the image to the cardstock. Then I cut a piece of fun foam and adhered it under the purple cardstock. I wanted the image to be raised up off the card front. Then I stamped my phrase "you are a deer friend" from the Into The Words (CL403) by Poppy Stamps with Versafine Onyx Black. After that I adhered the image above the phrase.
Next up I die cut from Kraft cardstock, the Small Deer die (DIE117-C) by IO Stamps and adhered them to the card front.
Last step was to adhere some Polar White Flower Soft to give the look of snow.
Done! All I need to do is send this card to a "deer friend". LOL.
