Country Livin' with the new Stampin' Blends
Hello, and welcome to my blog. My share for you today is a card I made for a co-worker's birthday. I knew I wanted to use the boots from Country Livin' and the Stampin' Blends markers. I stamped the boots with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut them out with the 2nd largest Stitched Shape Framelit circle. For the coloring, I used both light and dark markers of Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Pool Party. I started out with the light Crumb Cake and colored one entire boot. I went in with the dark marker and went over the shading lines on the stamped image. I did this a couple of times until I was happy with the color and then did the same thing on the other boot. I colored the accents in Bermuda Bay and the soles of the boots in Smoky Slate. I then used the Pool Party under the boots to ground them. This piece was then layered onto a Crumb Cake circle cut with the 2nd largest Layering Circles Framelits and then layered onto a Bermuda Bay scallop circle cut with the largest scallop from the layering circles. The card base is Bermuda Bay with a layer of Crumb Cake. Before adhering the Crumb Cake layer I used the brick mask from the Pattern Party masks and applied a layer of embossing paste. After that dried, I ran the Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze ink pads over it and then adhered it to the card base. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched with the classic label punch. To finish it off I added 2 pieces of burlap ribbon and a little piece of the copper trim.
