Happy Friday crafty friends! Hope you have a nice weekend in store! We are supposed to see very hot summer temperatures in Montreal :)
The project I am sharing today is made with stamps that are illustrated by Nicole Tamarin and manufactured by Art Gone Wild. Both are new to me but boy, did I fall in love with these Critters. Both sets that I used are made to be used with Chibitronics lights of which I have yet to purchase so my project does not incorporate the lighting.
This is a one layer with lots o' masking... I started by stamping my front images (porcupine, racoon and fire) with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink (my new favourite Copic friendly ink) with my Misti Stamp tool. I stamped them again on full sticky post-it notes. I fussy cut my masks then stamped my bear and cut and masked him.
I then placed post-it tape along the bottom to mask the future ground. I used a mix of Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet to create the sky even though I used Neena Solar White card stock to use my Copics I find that if you blend enough Distress Inks rock just as much on Neena. I switched my post-it tape to mask the top and used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for my ground.
I removed my masks and coloured my images. By the time I finished colouring, I was able to use VersaMark Ink to emboss the sentiment in white and then the fireworks in gold.
To finish off the card, I used my gold Gellyroller for the Bears fireworks and some white Gellyroller for some added shading on the bear and the racoon. Some Glossy Accents on the fire, eyes and noses and finally some Copic C7 to ground the bottom of all the images.
Thanks for taking the time!
