My weekend seemed awfully short--I hope yours seemed longer! This morning I have a card to share that I made for a special friend who is recovering from cancer surgery. It's made with a couple of JustRte Papercraft stamp sets, Hope and Love Vintage Labels Eight and Nine clear stamps and the Ironworks Vintage Labels Eight Cling Background.
As soon as I read the sentiment on the large label image, I knew that it would be perfect for my friend, and incidentally also just right for a blackboard technique. ;-)
I heat-embossed the label image on black cardstock with detail white embossing powder before cutting and embossing it with one of the Vintage Labels Eight dies. I stamped a second label image on light pink cardstock, then hand-trimmed it closely so that I could mount it on top of the black banner. I wanted to tint my white words with Copic makers, but it isn't good for the marker tips to color across any embossing powder other than clear; to get around that, I simply airbrushed color on top of the words with my Copic markers and Copic Airbrush System, using post it notes to mask between one color and the next. The overspray did not show on the black cardstock, so it was quite simple.
Would you like to see more projects using the Hope and Love Vintage Labels Eight and Nine clear stamps? I hope you get a chance to visit the blogs below then! Thank you for stopping by,
