Hi Guys, Me again. Today’s card is a general best wishes card. I wanted to play with my distressed inks and thought these beautiful stamps from Fiskars called For the Birds would be the perfect stamps to employ an emboss resist technique. I have had these stamps for awhile now and just haven’t pulled them out.
I started out by embossing the stamp using Ranger super fine clear embossing powder on white card stock. I then cut out the image with a circle nestability die. I then sponged the circle using Tumbled Glass and Broken China. I put just a hint of Faded Jeans on the edge. The frame was two scalloped oval nestability dies first dry embossed and then cut. I put both on the cuttlebug at the same time. I then inked the brown card stock, the patterned paper and the frame with Walnut stain Distress ink. (sorry I don’t know the brand of paper) I used a woodgrain stamp from Stampabilities inked with Frayed Burlap to create the background of the oval. The pearls and white ribbon are both from Michaels. I used the smallest scalloped Petite oval nestability for the sentiment. The sentiment itself was from Stampin’ Up short and sweet.
I love how it turned out. This could be for a man or woman. Love that!!
Thanks for looking.
