A Little Birdie Told Me Card

I love the art of this stamp (I have several by this designer), but I struggle with how to use it. BUT I LOVE IT.

For this card, I mounted the stamp on my MISTI, and stamped the individual distress inks to make an ombre image. When it was dry, I overstamped in VersaMark and added regular (not detail fine) embossing powder to give the image a higher, glossy loft.

Supplies:  Stamps – Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Clear, Stampin’ Up!
