Trees


Pin It
 A little bit of a "techniquey" card to show off today's MFT teaser. All details of the upcoming release are at the bottom of the post :)

A really quick card to make.....let me show you how!
 I used my Circle STAX Die-namics to cut a hole in a scrap piece of paper.
 I taped this scrap piece of paper over glossy card stock to create the "reverse mask".
 I grabbed my copic airbrush to color the background on my glossy card stock.
 A little bit of E35 for the ground.
 Some YG17 for deeper shades of green.
 A wee bit of BG15 for sky at the top of the tree.
 Next, I took my stamp and misted it with Copic Blender Solution and then stamped my glossy. This pushes the ink out of the way leaving my image.



My last step was to stamp the image again (this time in color). I used Memento's newest colors "Espresso Truffle" and "Olive Grove".
I trimmed it up, matted it with black card stock and then mounted it on a white card base with a ribbon!

Thanks for the cool technique! I love learning new stamping technique ideas. I have to ask - where did you get the new Memento ink spots? I have been waiting for what feels like FOREVER to order some of the new colors!
