I needed a birthday card for a friend and decided I wanted to use a technique I discovered through Operation Write Home. They are a great source for tutorials and I absolutely LOVE their sketches! This is a great organization that collects handmade cards to give to troops to mail back home. I simply LOVE this concept. I have made and donated cards in the past but got out of the habit. I want to try to get back in the grove. Everything you need to know about them and their guide lines can be found on their website.
Triple Time Stamping.
My friend is an avid bird watcher so I added a bird to the card. The stamp is from Unity. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Salty Ocean. I wanted to give the bird some gloss and used clear embossing powder but it didn't give the effect I was looking for so I covered the bird with glossy accents. I cut the bird out and put foam tape behind to give the bird some dimension.
I'm thinking this would be a great technique to use in making multiple cards and just changing out the sentiment.
Have a good one!
