Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for the current issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine, which goes on sale today! I made a five cards for the magazine, all using Hero Arts stamps and dies and a masculine theme. I thought I would share my whale card with you today.
To first took the whale from the Color Layering Blue Whale stamp set and stamped this on to white cardstock. I used Pool ink for the bottom layer, followed by Deep Ocean Ink for the middle layer, and then Navy ink for the details. The whale was then cut out using the coordinating frame cuts dies. I took a panel of white cardstock and cut this using one of the Rectangle Infinity Dies. I inked up the Pearl Strings Bold Prints stamp with Soft Pool ink at the top, Pool ink in the middle and Deep Ocean ink at the bottom. This was then stamped on to the white cardstock panel using my MISTI.
I added the stamped background piece on to a navy card base using foam tape and then added the whale on top with foam tape also. I took a strip of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment on to it using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I cut the strip diagonally on one side and added it to the card with foam tape as well. To finish off, I added black Nuvo Drops.
