Sometimes we just need to kick that sickness in the butt! Here is the perfect card for a sick friend…I mean sick in every way.
This sweet NEW Stretchy Ostrich and her faithful friends are here to cheer you up!
Creating the Card
I wanted to do some more playing around with the best no-line stamp pads around. The no-line series of Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink stamp pads are literally the BEST. They are perfect for no-line coloring and come in a handful of colors. Perfect for this technique. This card is using Whisper. Hint – if you find the lines are too light to see when coloring, all you have to do is stamp the image twice (or more).
For this card I did a bit of airbrushing on the sky and I chose green as there was no green in the Stretchy Ostrich to match the frogs, to match the papers…I felt I needed to establish green somewhere else on the card, so why not the background.
Layering the Card
After stamping the black Meshy Mesh background in VersaFine black I started to build the card. First, I die cut the center of the cloud background with the Basic Stitched Ovals die set. This guaranteed matching paper layers and the under portion of the airbrushed sky was just going to get wasted anyways.
Next I adhered the lower sky layer, added a layer of the black Meshy Mesh and then the oval piece to the card front. I combined and stamped the sentiments (from the Ant set and the Everyday Scripted clear set) and adhered it to the scalloped border from the Kinetic Straight Basics set.
Using the hand cut Ostrich and the frogs (from the Gnome sets) I layered and popped them up onto the raised sentiment strip. How fun is that!
