I am back today with Walk through Wednesday for 7 Kids Crafts, with a fun card featuring Lavinia Stamps, Moments like these. This technique would work great with any of the Lavinia stamps that 7 Kids carries.
You will need ink for blending, your favorite cardstock, masking paper or sticky notes. You can use a die to cut the circle for the sun or cutting machine, stamp and your favorite ink- just be sure it's not water reactive if your ink is, or you plan to use as.
Create your layout by masking off the moon and the snow. I cut the snow by freehand.
Next you will take your lightest ink and lay down a light layer. In this case I used Tattered Rose for my lightest color.
Then your mid tone ink. For this I used Worn Lipstick.
And lastly blend in your darkest color. For this I used Seedless Preserves. I feel like you get the best blend working back and forth among the colors.
Once I had a blend I liked I removed my masking paper.
I then stamped the image with my stamp positioner. I placed her so that some of the flower would be in front of the moon. Once the image was stamped and I allowed time to ensure was dry I spritzed with water to allow the distress Oxide to react. I then added Nuvo Glitter accents to the snow to add a bit of texture and sparkle to the snow. I also used a white gel pen to add more texture.
Lastly I matted my image on a black mat, which I feel made the image and colors pop.
