I made a set of 10 cards as a gift for my mother in law, as it has become a bit of a tradition. I will post a pic of the set after this one. They are simple and fairly quick cards. This card is the card I made for my mother in law for her birthday though, which took a little bit longer than the cards in the set :).
Supplies: X press It blending card, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Stamps – Hero Arts Bird Collage, Clear set – Essential Messages, We R memory keepers pink thread, Old Paper Distress Ink, Victorian Velvet distress ink, foam blending tool, Patterned paper – Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings 6×6 paper pad, White Cardstock, Tim Holtz distressing tool, paper trimmer, scissors, double sided tape, Copic markers – R22, G000, G00, Yg63, Yg67, E93, E95, E25, E29, E11, Atyou spica pens.
Method: I stamped the bird collage stamp onto blending card and coloured with my copic markers. I then used old paper distress ink over the image and then flicked water over it to give it an aged look. I distressed the edges with the distressing tool and rolled the edges a little. I distressed the edges of the blue patterned paper and inked the butterfly patterned paper with victorian velvet distress ink. I stamped the sentiment on the blue patterned paper. I changed the colour of the pink thread by inking it with victorian velvet ink and tied a bow as shown. I cut the card base to size and inked with old paper distress ink. The card was stuck together as shown.
