Hello, everyone! Judy here with a card to inspire you for the current Challenge #13 using this inspiration board:
For my project today, I chose to work with the middle row across: Critters/Border Stamp/Die-Cut Stencil. I have a lot of critter stamps in my stash, and I am always in need of birthday cards, so this was an easy choice!
To make this clean and simple one-layer card, I started out with a piece of watercolor paper folded and cut to standard A2 card size (4.25 x 5.5 inches). I stamped my sentiment first -- a border sentiment that serves as the ground for my scene.
Next, I stamped the critter -- in this case, a bunny -- directly on the sentiment line, and then masked it in order to stencil behind it. I was so excited to find Post-It notes with a full sticky back at my local office supply store recently...they work great for making masks of stamped images!
After inking over the stencil, I removed the mask, added some ink for the grass, and added some color to the bunny with Copic markers. Glossy Accents on the bunny's nose and two patterned paper butterflies were the finishing touches!
I am really looking forward to your take on the inspiration board for Challenge #13. I hope you get a chance to play along! Thank you for stopping by today!
