Hello! At the end of July, I posted a card called Moonlit Wings: Version 1. I had made both that card and the card I am sharing today at about the same time. I received such wonderful responses to that first card, I wanted to be sure I shared the second version. If you missed the first card, you can check it out HERE. Today’s card, like the first, uses stamps from Stampendous. My full instructions on how to make this second version are below.
SSC2205: Moonlit Wings
DP101: Detail Silver Embossing Powder
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
6CR021: Posted Script Stamp
My Colors Cardstock: Deep Indigo, Sky
Imagine: VersaMark Ink
Kuretake: Gansai Tambi Watercolors- #37 & 67
Scrapbook Adhesives: Foam Squares or Circles
1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper to 3 1/4″ x 4 5/8.” This measurement could change depending on the size of your block.
2. Paint the 2 watercolors in a rectangle, starting with one, fading into the second. Let dry.
3. Apply VersaMark Ink to the Moonlit Wings stamp.
4. Stamp the image on to the dried watercolor.
5. Sprinkle the image with Detail Black Embossing Powder, tap off excess, and heat set.
6. Tear or use an Edge Distresser (mine is from Heidi Swapp) along the edges of the watercolor paper.
7. Cut a piece of Deep Indigo cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4.”
8. Ink the Posted Script stamp with VersaMark Ink and apply to the Deep Indigo piece.
9. Sprinkle Detail Silver Embossing Powder on to the wet ink, shake off excess, and heat set.
10. Create the card base out of Sky cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2.”
11. Apply EZ Runner to the back of the watercolor panel and embossed panel and adhere to the card base.
Which version do you like better? They are both really soft and pretty, but the application of the color behind the stamping is different. I love that both of these cards could easily be used for various occasions. You can simply omit a sentiment until you are ready to mail out the card. Please visit the Stampendous Blog for more ideas. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
