Good morning, everyone!
It's time for Skipping Stones Design's Feature Friday!
This month we have been featuring 2 very popular stamp sets..........
Heartsong & Heartsong 2!
Here's another card made using Heartsong 2.
|Love this color palette!|
I knew that I wanted to surround the bird stamp in flowers and the best way to achieve that was patterned paper. Using Basic Grey's Konnichiwa, I was able to add all of the roses in the background.
For the stamping, I did 2nd generational stamping by stamping off the ink first on a piece of scrap paper and then stamping onto the white panel. I did the same thing one more time, but turned the stamp ever so slightly. I didn't want the leaves to be as dark as the bird. Finally, I stamped the bird. Originally, I thought I would be coloring the bird, so I used Memento ink, but then I liked it exactly as it was.
Before adhering all of the pieces, I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress inks to sponge all of the edges. I already had the cute little flower made from an online class I'm taking now, so that was just a bonus.
I hope you enjoyed another Heartsong 2 feature!
