GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Hope everyone is holding steady during these crazy, unsettling times. We’ve been working on the backyard, occasionally wandering out with our masks to local nurseries to pick up flowers. Our backyard is really coming along. A few days ago the weather was fabulous so I grabbed my ink pads and stencils to move my crafting outside.
I’ve been looking for new to me stamp companies to change things up a bit. I recently came across Kazelkraft Stamps and love the quirky images. I also stocked up on sentiment stamps from Impression Obsession to add a few tongue in cheek stamps to my stash.
For today’s project, I started by using the largest die in Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle die set to cut the cardstock. I stamped the sentiment along the bottom in Versafine Clare ink, added Nuvo Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set the image. I stamped the Aviator image in Gina K.’s Amagam Ink and colored it with Copic markers (see list below). Using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I stenciled the cloud background using the Cloud Stencil by My Favorite Things. Originally, I planned on using gold star shaped sequins but they stood out too much. So I used the Falling Stars Layering Stencil by Tim Holtz and Delicata Golden Glitz Ink to add the stars. After stenciling the stars, I added clear embossing powder and heat set the images. For an added touch, I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the glass on the aviator googles to make them shine.
That’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by!
