Whoa, looks who back again, twice on the same day! A friend recently mentioned to me that she is “stress hiking”, I think I am stress crafting/blogging, I set a goal for myself to make/share 31 cards in August, and I already have enough to share and there a few days left in the month! Now I have to sit down and write the posts! This is the last card I made inspired by the Butterfly Reflections Ink August mood board, can’t wait to see what is in store for next month!
This picture was inspired by both the colors and the images in the mood board and I wanted to give a “scene card” another try. Believe it or not, this stamp set is from last summer and I just inked it up, at least my plan of using my BRAND NEW stamps is going well! I probably have enough to last me years!
I started this card by diecutting the two frame dies from a slimline die set, along with windows on the smaller frame. Then I inked the edges of the larger frame with Twisted Citron, and along inking up the window opening using the Tropical Background Stencil. I lighting inked the inner frame with the windows using Broken China.
Next, I stamped all the images from the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set, and colored them using Chameleon Color Tone Colored Pencils (colors listed below), and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Using foam tape for added dimension, I adhered the toucans and the branches through the window opening on the inner frame. Lastly, I embossed a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set with white onto black cardstock, and trimmed to make it look like it was die cut!
