Hello hello! Welcome to the CLASSroom today. I've got a fun card to share using a few different different techniques: masking and in-laid die cut!
First, I had to figure out the placement of where I was going to place my stamps and to do that I needed to mark where my die would approximately go. I just used a light pen and went along the edge of my die.
Next, I stamped the bird on the panel.
Since he's going in front of the next image, I needed to cover him up (I used some masking paper post it tape) so that way the line doesn't stamp across him but instead appears behind him.
Then I stamped the owl.
To ink blend, I covered him up too.
Then I colored everything in with Copics.
Then, in areas where it wasn't stamped quite perfectly, I added a little Copic Multi-liner to fill in the missing spots.
I added a butterfly and colored him in too!
Finally, I'm ready to die cut. I position it with washi tape to keep it from shifting, lining it up carefully to match my initial marks.
Cut perfectly. (That never happens!)
I had to add in the feet - I forgot to color them in!
Then I die cut the sentiment from black card stock.
And to create the lower portion I cut it again from white card stock.
Then, on my card base, I coated it pretty heavily with adhesive and added to ink blended piece at the top.
Finally, I added the lower portion.
Then, I used my paper trimmer and cut it down to size.
I had to be extra careful and save the bits in the letters to add them.
Next, I spritzed it with some water to activate the blended background and accented it with washi tape and sequins.
Check out how neat that inlaid die cut is!
Lastly, I touched it up with a little wink of stella and some white gel pen accents.
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
