welcome to our second Skipping Stones Design Tip/Technique Hop. Today each DT member will share a technique, tip or suggestion for creating or organizing. You should have arrived from the Skipping Stones Design Blog. We hope you'll find lots of inspiration while hopping along (see the complete link list at the bottom of this post). For your chance to be a random winner of a Skipping Stones Design stamp set simply leave a comment at each stop of the hop.
With my card I'm showing you how easy and quick you can create a background with the help of a stencil. And I also turned a solid stamp image into a metallic embellishment.
At first I sponged two turquoise tones of Dye Inks («Sea Glass» and «Mali Blue» from Simon Says Stamp) through the Tim Holtz «Doily» Stencil and created a light gradient. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Heartsong 2 stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed it in silver.
I also heat embossed the silhouette bird from the Garden Stamp Kiss set with the same silver embossing powder. But this time I repeated the heat embossing two times to get a more raised image. Then I fussy cut my little birdie and adhered it with small 3D foam pads. To finish my card I added some rhinestones.
