This week I want to share an appreciation card I made using Brutus Monroe’s “Geared Owl” stamp!
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, sticking to grey/brown/golden tones. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and details before fussy cutting it out.
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out three panels, two from Neenah Classic Crest white card stock and one from black card stock. I cut a window in my smallest panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts and splattered my largest panel with black ink and gold metallic watercolour paint.
I took a small piece of watercolour paper (big enough to cover the back of my circle window) and used some water to dampen it. I placed spots of metallic watercolour paint randomly on the paper and covered it with clingfilm, scrunching it up to get the textured look I wanted by moving the paint around under it and set it aside to dry.
I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” stamp set directly on my smallest panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped this panel up on my watercolour panel and popped my owl up on my panel also using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used Scor-Tape to adhere all of my panels together and to my card base.
Thanks for reading lovelies! I’ll see you next week with another card.
