Welcome to the last day of the Zen Garden blog hop. What do you think of all the new inks, stamps and dies? Aren’t they just gorgeous?
During today’s blog hop we focus on the Stained Glass Cover Plate and the Faithful Flutterings stamp. My first project is using the larger butterfly and the new Split Chevron stencil from the Zen Garden release.
For my next card, I heat embossed three feathers and die cut them. Then I adhered them on a background that I embossed using the Stained Glass Cover Plate. The sympathy sentiment from the Faithful Fluttering stamp set was the perfect fit for this card.
I used my favorite ink smooshing technique for the colorful background. It’s super easy. You just smear the ink onto a craft mat, add a little water and drag the paper through the ink. Then heat set it between each layer and finish once you have the effect that you are looking for. I didn’t want to steal any attention from the background, so I just adhered a thank you in white with a black shadow on top.
