Good morning! I hope that your Wednesday is off to a great start.
Today, our challenge at The House that Stamps Built, is an inspirational photo.
Isn't it pretty?
Of course, the beautiful red called out to me, as did the beautiful snowy background.
So, here is what this photo inspired me to create:
The stamps I used were: Repeat Impressions #5707-M Fan, and
The card base was created, set aside, and the focal panel was started.
The fan image, and sentiment were stamped on a 4" x 5.25" white panel, in black ink.
The fan was stamped again on a post it, and fussy cut, creating a mask.
Then, the image was colored, using Copic markers in red, green, and flesh colors.
I had a stencil from Hobby Lobby that had never been used, that seemed perfect for the background.
The panel and stencil were taped down with removable tape.
A stipple brush, and inks, in shades of blue and gray, were used to create the background.
After the stippling was finished, the mask was removed.
Versamark ink was placed over the entire panel, and clear embossing powder sprinkled on.
The panel was heat embossed with the clear powder twice, for a glassy, icy appearance.
The focal panel was attached to card front, and voila!
Photo inspiration was a success!!!
