Yesterday I had a chance to get together with some of my stamping buddies. We had not had an opportunity to stamp together in months. My dear friend Connie taught us all how to make this card. Don't you love it? She was inspired by many of the tutorials from Michelle Zindorf.
Connie told us it took her five minutes to make this and we didn't believe her. Once we got started it was pretty simple, but since I'm more of a CAS gal, all that sponging and layering of inks intimidated me. Now, I can't wait to make lots more cards like this.
I started with a white Top Note die cut. I used post-it notes to mask the moon, the hills and mountains. I sponged on the blue sky and mountains and then the green grassy hills. The inks were SU, so I'm not sure of the names. I listed my guesses in the supplies below. After I sponged everything the way I wanted it I stamped the tree, the deer and the sentiment. I trimmed the edges off the Top Note die before adhering it to the base. The black frame is popped up for dimension.
Stamps: Nature Silhouettes (SU), tree (unknown)
Ink: Stazon black, bashful blue, not quite navy, old olive (SU)
Paper: Sahara Sand, black, white (SU)
Accessories: sponges, top note die (SU), post-it notes
