Hello Stamping Friends,
I have one more card to post from my April card class. This one uses the Let It Ride stamp set and is a case of Kim Baker at www.kims-kreative-korner.blogspot.com.
Stamps: Let It Ride, High Tide (birds), Barn Door, Crackle Paint
Tools: Sliding Door Framelits Dies, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder,
Inks: Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Soft Sky Blue
Stampin’ Blends: Dark & Light Soft Suede, Light Smoky Slate (hooves)
Special Technique: Sponging with saran wrap. I wadded up a piece of saran wrap and put it in one of those big black desk clips. I masked off the separation between sky and meadow and masked off the horse. I stamped the sky, changed saran wrap and switched the mask on the meadow to the sky and then stamped the meadow in green. It gave the card a textured sort of sponging and took much less time. Looks a lot like grass don’t you think?!
I used the Stamparatus to stamp the horse (and needed it) so I could stamp a second time and press a little extra on the mane. I triple stamped the trees using the Stamparatus so they would be a deep green and then moved the hinge on the Stamparatus and did a couple of shadow stamps to create a forest.
Dimensions: Note – the layers are flush to the bottom
- Crumb Cake: 11″ X 4 1/4″, Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″; Make a pencil mark 2 1/8″ down at the left hand side of the front and cut diagonally from that mark to the 2 3/4″ score line
