I started with white glossy cardstock, and used the blending tool to color it with wild honey and spiced marmalade distress inks, and cranberry Adirondack ink. Then I spritzed the music background cling with a mix of perfect pearls and water, and overstamped that onto my background colors. I heat-set that, then used all of the above inks to overstamp the little maple leaf. Next was the overstamping of the sweet birds. I then used a bit of leftover background from my previous card to stamp the sentiment, framing it in kraft and hanging it on twine. It wouldn't hang at the right angle, so I used a bit of Glossy Accents as glue to hold it exactly where I wanted it, and to add my little heart button.
Here's a detail picture to show you the effect of the perfect pearl stamping. So, here are the techniques I used:
making a Distress Ink background using blending tool and foam
water stamping onto Distress Inks
stamping with the same color of Distress Ink
using Glossy Accents as a glue
AND, since this uses orange and string, I'm also entering it into the wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge. Please scroll on down to the post below to see a very similar project using some of the same techniques.
