I used images from the City Streets Stamp Set from Sunny Studio Stamps and my MISTI to create a little scene.
I then stamped the same images on to some full sticky Post-It Notes to create masks.
After fussy cutting and applying the masks, it was time to do some ink blending!! I am somewhat obsessed with Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. It gives such a pretty evening sky effect. I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink for the "street".
I removed the masks and did some simple colouring with some alcohol markers. I trimmed down the panel to 3.5 X 6 inches. I DID NOT want to cut any of the stamping off! So I had to make a custom card base. I simply cut 2 pieces of white cardstock at 6 X 4.25 inches and made a half inch score line on one of them (which will act as the fold). I used some double sided tape to adhere the pieces together.
I used foam tape to apply my coloured and blended scene. For the sentiment I used the Sentiments Die from Waffle Flower Crafts. Let me just say that I LOVE this little set!! It was basically a last minute decision to buy it but wow, I use this all the time!!! These little strips fit different lengths of sentiments. And not just from Waffle Flower sets!! I highly recommend it!!
For the finishing touches I used the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay Pen, a ton of Glossy Accents and some super sweet Matte White Enamel Dots. So finally, I am done babbling and will show you the final result!!
I hoped you enjoyed my first post!! Thank you for stopping by!!
