Online card class Day 3 – scenic stamping

Another Online card class homework… This time I tried the technique demonstrated by Julie Ebersole called Optical Illusions, Scenic Stamping.

Again, I applied my image on top of a white folded card to make it a little more sturdy….

Here is my card:

20140313-232656.jpg

The stamp set I used is called Have a bloomin good day JCS 233 by Darcie’s heart and home. I colored the images with a water brush and ink pads spread on an acrylic block, just like Julie did.

The inks I used are: Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the images.
and to colour: Cornflower and Green Hills by Hero Arts, Vermillion by Ranger, Brown and Mustard by Heidi Swapp.

I also some Wink of Stella on the blue birds, the leaves and the grass.

I didn’t splatter my image like Julie did, because I usually make a mess of this…. my spatters are always too big…

I wanted to add just a coloured border at the bottom like Julie did, but I felt that my card needed more… so I added red cardstock at the top and bottom (Graphic 45 By the Sea Collection).

The final card is 4 ¼ x 5 ½”.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Merci de votre visite.
