Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Thank You for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you for this challenge.  My card today features the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set paired with the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

Trim the panel of Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper with the bird image to 4″ by 5-1/8″.  Use an Aqua Painter to add color to the image.  This is done by picking up the ink from the lid of each color ink pad after gently squeezing the case to transfer ink from the pad to the lid.  Add color slowly and in layers, allowing it to dry in between additions, until you achieve the look you want.

I used Rococo Rose and Soft Suede for the bird body and a touch of Crushed Curry for the beak and legs.  The branches are Soft Suede and the leaves are Pear Pizzazz.  Yes, I guess I cheated and added a color – didn’t want brown leaves.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the laser-cut panel to a mat of Soft Suede card stock.

Wrap a length of Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the left side of the layer and adhere the ends on the back side with tape.  Tie a shorter length of ribbon in a knot around it and trim the ends at an angle – for a faux bow.  Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on a panel of Rococo Rose card stock with Soft Suede ink.

Use a label die from the Lakeside Dies to cut out the sentiment as shown.  The sentiment is near the left end of the label and the right side is trimmed off straight to align with the edge of the art piece.  Adhere the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then adhere the art piece to the card front with Dimensionals, as well.

Stamp the inside sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Soft Suede ink.  Adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Soft Suede card stock with Liquid Glue and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card with Glue, as well.
