I have chosen the Large Landscape stamp from ClarityStamp Limited and my favourite Ink (at the moment) Archival Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender.
The other items used in making this card are:
May all your Dreams Stamp (insert) Stencil Tape (or masking tape)
Large Birch Leaf Stamp Copy paper
Bare Tree Stamp
Clear Embossing Powder Ruler
Heat Gun Wet wipes
Talcum Powder 8 x 8 inch Blank Card
Soft Brush for dusting Moon Mask
I Taped off the 4 edges of the Blank Card, making sure that the Stencil Tape went slightly over the edge ( To protect it from getting discoloured when using the stencil brushes). I Sprinkled Talcum Powder onto card and brushed over lightly...tapped away excess. (this stops the embossing powder from sticking where it shouldnt ). Then I Inked up the Landscape Stamp, centered onto the card and stamped. I Sprinkled the embossing powder on top and then tapped off excess and then heat set from underneath.
I added a moon mask and using a ruler tore some hills in some copy paper. I lightly brushed they sky with the lavender ink. I took the hills out to either side of the stamped image. I tore anothe piece of copy paper but more of a straight line and used this piece to follow the lines for the horizon within the stamp.
I put a bit more shading in on the outside of the image using my stencil brush and the torn copy paper. I then used the Large Birch Leaf stamp to stamp around the edge at the top and sides. This gives the impression of looking through the trees. I then stamped the Bare Tree from a remountable winter set along the bottom of the image.
I then dusted once more with Talcum powder. Stamped the word Dream and then embossed and heat set it
I stamped the sentiment onto the center of the insert and then I lightly stamped the Birch Leaf around the edges. Once all the stamping was done I removed all the masking tape to leave a lovely white border.
Now I could have drawn a border all around the image either freehand or with a ruler but I decided just to leave it as it is.
I hope you like it. xx
P.S. When using stamps and pearlescent ink it is best to give them a bit of a wipe as soon as you can. Intricate stamps can get a bit clogged up with this type of ink. With Clarity Stamps you can submerge in warm water or just give them a swipe over with a wet wipe.
