I’d like to thank Cas Colours & Sketches for having me as a guest designer on their blog, I’m so honoured!
For my card I used Distress inks that match the Stamping up colours, more or less, I ended up putting down such a thin layer the colours are a bit more pastel like, I used broken China, cracked pistachio and hickory smoke.
I applied them with a dry brush to get the lightest covering and smoothest covering, no edges.
I die cut 3 hearts out of a card panel I made slightly smaller than the card base.
I traced the hearts onto the card base, so I would know where to ink.
I then stamped these three images from Lawn Fawn (hello baby) on Neenah classic crest cardstock and coloured them with my markers, I kept them all the same tones, light blue greyish shadows so they would match the hickory smoke, so the yellow duckling also became a white one, maybe a Goose? Lol
I allowed a little flesh colour for the ears and beak.
I cut them out and then used the Memento tuxedo black marker to darken the edges.
The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped with Versafine black onyx.
I mounted the card panel with foam tape for some dimension and then adhered the critters inside with glue dots (was the closest at hand but it actually works well, nice and strong hold).
I have a video out that shows you how to blend with the brushes, not this card, but same technique.
