Happy Wednesday Dare 2B Artzy fans! I’m back today sharing my latest Dare 2B Artzy card creation.
For this project I used the feathers from the Dream Catcher set and paired it with the sentiment from the Tangle Jumpstart set.
I started off my project by die cutting a rectangle that was 6 1/8 x 4 1/8. I used a large Post-it sheet to mask off the left and right edges of the rectangle.
I stamped the 3 different sized feather stamps from the Dream Catcher set with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using some Ultra Fine White embossing powder first. Next I went back and filled in the blank areas again with the 3 different feather stamps, this time embossing them with a champagne colored embossing powder. In a few places I did just a partial stamped image and heat embossed that for visual interest.
Once my heat embossing in the two colors was done, I grabbed some inks in purple, teal and lime green and used sponge daubers to apply the ink in various places on the masked cardstock. I tried to make sure that I blended the colors and left no white areas.
When I was done inking the masked section, I took a tissue and rubbed the excess ink off the white embossing so it wouldn’t stain it too badly.
Once finished inking, I was able to carefully peel off the Post-it sheet on both sides to reveal a crisp masked section with some bold colors against the white cardstock.
I wanted to add a bit of dimension and shine to the card so I created a circle in MS Word on my computer and filled it with black. I used my laser printer and printed the black circle to a piece of cardstock and used a circle die to cut it out. I touched up a couple of edges with my Minc marker that were creased and resulted in the black ink coming off in the die cutting process. Finally, I was able to foil the die cut piece in my Minc machine.
I stamped, heat embossed and die cut the two large feathers again this time using a Hematite colored embossing powder. Once finished I colored them with my Copic markers using colors that matched my background.
The sentiment I used is from the Tangle Jumpstart set and it just fit into the white space on my card perfectly. I stamped and heat embossed it with some black embossing powder.
Finally, I placed some dimensional foam on the back of my foiled circle and added it to the card front. On top I layered my two die cut and colored feathers. I tied a little twine with some gold thread in it to the ends of the feathers to give it a finishing touch.
I really enjoyed making this card and sharing it with everyone. Hope it inspires you to try some different masking and heat embossing with your favorite Dare 2B Artzy stamps.
Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
