This card was so quick and fun to make! I’ll be posting a YouTube Video showing exactly how to do it. Make sure you Subscribe to our Youtube channel so you can watch the video when it goes live on 12/26/15!
I’ve been wanting to use this stamp from Rubber Necker for quite a while. In fact, I’ve easily had it for over a year! I’m pretty happy with this card, but if I made it again, I would put a mirror in the frame that the bird is flying out of. Most of the items used in this card were also handmade. I poured the resin pieces and , of course, I make the Luster Mica Spray Mist. I used 4 different Luster colors on this card. The die cut pieces are Spellbinders. The background paper is glossy photo paper which, to my surprise, holds the Luster Spray Mist very well. I tried to leave hints of past, present and future throughout the card . I used the clock to represent time and bird flying out of the frame as change. There’s multiple different ways to interpret the pieces I used in the card though. I hope you guys like it!
I created this card using the new Mr. Hueys watercolor palette that I have for sale in my store. I also used one of my laser cut Chevron masks that I now decided to recreate into a larger background stencil to make this technique easier. Overall, I like this card, but I can see how it could be improved by using a background stencil rather than a border mask like I was using. I used the mask as a stamp to create an emboss resist on the sides. Watercolors are a lot of fun and are very freeing to use.
