I was asked to be featured on Inspirational's Blog!
How cool is that? The artists are amazing that they feature, check out the samples there. I was blown away.
Here's the link to my card she posted.
Today's Inspiration Challenge were some very interesting hotel rooms, each one a work of art. I chose to use room 309 as my inspiration for today's card.
My card is another sneak peek using a new set to be released by Innovative Stamp Creations called Marvels of Nature II. 3 new stamp sheets and 1 individual stamp will be released on 9/2. I will bring you some of the other images leading up to the release, or scroll through my gallery for more sneak peeks from other sets.
Here are the card details: CS is Chocolate Chip, Kraft & Gold DejaView's Attic Collection DP. The frame was created using the dots from Cuttlebugs new with love border folders. The birds, sentiment and flourished swirls background are from Marvels of Nature II. The birds were stamped on Kraft CS using a rock n roll technique with Distress inks in Vintage Photo & Fired Brick inks. They were cut out and heavily sprayed with a pearlized distress mist made by combining Distress Inks, perfect pearls & water. I made 2 misters, 1 with Vintage Photo/Perfect Pearls Gold/Water & Fired Brick/Perfect Pearls Bronze/Water. When dry, I sponged the edges of the birds with Distress Black Soot. The perch is a die from Spellbinders Shapeabilities collection that was cut from brushed gold CS and sponged with black soot ink before removing from the die. (after embossing the detail) The edges were sponged with Distress Walnut Stain and the DP was distressed. I finished it with Taffeta ribbon in Chocolate and kraft and added 2 different sized brads for the birds eyes. Have a great weekend!
p.s. I promise I am working on something other than a bird card. Stay tuned for a 3D project on Tuesday as well as more sneak peeks between now and then.
