Hello friends! We’re kicking off the January Release Countdown with a brand new stamp set from Birdie Brown! I fell in love with this set immediately! The “Hug It Out” set is sure to tug at your heart strings with all of its adorable images!
I created a whimsical single layered card today with one of the images from this set. To start, I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I then stamped my image on the card front and then stamped it again onto a sheet of Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Sheets. Next, I fussy cut this piece from the masking paper and then placed it directly on top of the same image on the front of my card.
With my mask in place, I then blended both a a grassy area and blue sky background with both Shabby Shutters and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Inks respectively. I then splattered each area lightly with some diluted opaque white paint. I also added some diluted green watercolor splatters in the grass and diluted blue watercolor splatters in the sky. Next, I removed the masking paper and allowed my card to dry completely before coloring the image with Copic Markers.
Copic Color Blends Used:
- Bear: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
- Raccoon: W2, W4, W6, W8
- Bunny: W00, W0, W2
- Squirrel: E31, E23, E25, E29
- Owl: E51, E53, E55
- Fox: YR00, YR07, YR18, E09, E50, E51, E53
