Hi! Marge here. Today I have a dreamy card made with Stamp-It's new "Hummingbird Wings" stamp. You know how the image really dictates the feel of the card? Well this lovely quote just said "artsy" to me, so I pulled out my encaustic wax supplies to do a background with lots of motion and texture. Not to worry, if you don't have encaustic wax, you can get a similar feel with the polished stone, shaving cream or heated pearls technique, among others.
After making the background, it was layered on black and then on a lavender base. I stamped the main image in black ink, onto white card stock. I did a border embossed swirl on the right of the image, to reprise the swirly tail feathers. I then sponged around it with lavender, blue, and amethyst inks. I layered it on black, adhered it with dimensionals, and added some tiny pearls as a finishing touch.
This card went together so quickly that I decided to make a custom envelope with Crafter's Companion Envelobox Creator.
I think this would be a great Bon Voyage card or a Graduation card, with a sentiment about "exploring your world" inside.
That's all for today. I hope you're enjoying your Sunday...and I'll see you back here next week!
