Welcome! For the next couple of days I have two card that I made back in December for CHA and can finally share. First is a birthday card using JustRite's Hydrangea Vintage Labels Seven clear stamps, along with their Diamond Filigree Cling Background Stamp. The background is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I love the richness of a tone on tone effect, as well as the added texture that heat embossing creates.
I knew that I planned to fussy-cut the hydrangeas image, but I wanted a graduated background behind the flower. I cut a piece of cardstock with a JustRite Vintage Labels Seven die, then airbrushed with Copic YR23, G43, and V22, in conjunction with my Copic Airbrush System.
Here are the Copic Sketch colors that I used on the hydrangea and butterfly. (Click on any image to enlarge.)
I coated the butterfly with clear glitter to add a bit of sparkle to my card. (Only the butterfly is bumped up with foam tape; the hydrangea is flat; its dimension is created with shading.) The birthday wishes tag is cut with a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags die template. Ribbon is white seam binding dyed with Copic V22 and a few drops of Colorless Blender. TIP: Adding colorless blender before you add reinker helps the reinker to spread throughout the ribbon more easily. I use inexpensive sandwich bags and dye about a yard or so of seam binding at a time, then put the extra length in my ribbon drawer; I always check there first before I dye more to coordinate with a card.
