Good morning everyone! Jennie here today with my second project of the month and I am sharing with you a single layer stamped card using the lovely stamps from the Stampers Anonymous Bird Feather Set.
I don't have too many photographs to share with you of the process as they seem to have disappeared off my camera!
I started with a piece of cream cardstock and using Everygreen Bough Distress Inks and the Harlequinn Layering Stencil blended very softly a background. I wanted to create a muted background so I could just stamp directly on top of it.
I then used the Feather stamp and again with Everygreen Bough stamped it twice, BUT I stamped off first onto some scrap paper so what you are seeing is a second generation stamp. Again this all helped in keeping the colours light. I added some script stamping around the edges of the cardstock in Vintage Photo, again stamping off to keep it muted.
Finally I was able to stamp my main features in Black Arcival Ink and as I had kept the background light this worked well, with just a little colour showing through the black images.
The final effect is quite striking and I love the muted Evergreen Bough in the background - normally it is such a bright colour.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for trying out some bright colours but using the second generation stamp to achieve more muted tones.
Thank you for joining me today.
