Scenic Masculine Silhouette Card

Hi there,

Today I'd like to share a card with you using some of the older sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle - in fact three! Right Beside You Set 812,  Wetlands 1 Set 790Wetlands 2 Set 791, along with some of the Nuvo Embellishment Mousses.
To begin with, I set up my scene on my stamping platform. You can also use the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.
I stamped the entire scene in Versamark onto  a piece of Watercolor cardstock  5 1/2" x 5 1/2". It was then heat embossed with Cerulean. I used different elements from the three stamp sets, to make up my scene.  
Next I just took the Nuvo Embellishment MoussesCornflower BluePeony Pink and Indian Gold with my water brush filled with water and painted them over the scene, blending them in to one another as I went. The embossing powder resisted the paint for the most part and I used a paper towel to take of any puddling on top of the embossing powder. 
Then I looked at my scene and saw that two of my ducks were flying upside down!! So how to remedy that little scenario? Let's cover them up with some sentiments!
I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and heat embossed with Cerulean on the watercolor cardstock. They were fussy cut into banners and a little blue background was added to each of them and then they were popped up on mounting tape. Now I had three normal ducks!
This was layered to a piece of blue cardstock and then to the white card base. Here is the version I did for my Dad (with all the ducks in the the correct direction). I think this would also work well as a Father's Day card. It goes together quickly too!

Here is a list of products used in this project:

Hope you liked my share today? Thanks for stopping by today,

  2. What a beautiful,scene, Shona. Had to smile at your upside down ducks, but you rescued the scene brilliantly with the added sentiment. Can't wait for my stamping platform to arrive. Should be here any day now. xx
