This is Javier. He was clearing tables, and as he walked by, his tee shirt caught my eye:
Something about it was familiar:
Oh yes...the colors! And the egret!
So I asked him if I could take a picture of his shirt (the wait staff tried to sell me one 😁) and I came home to create this:
Lilypad Lake is a new Stampin' UP! set that includes the egret and has wonderful coordinating dies. So I got busy...
Next I stamped the egret from Lilypad Lake. Now this stamp is not a solid stamp, so after stamping it using Tuxedo Black, I colored in the bird with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. Finally, using a mask of the bird, I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree, using Soft Suede ink.
Once done, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock, 4" x 5-1/4", and ran it through my Big Shot three times.
A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels were placed on the corners of the Tufted "pillows" to give the card a little sparkle.
And I finished it off with a sentiment from Painted Glass, stamped in Versamark ink on Poppy Parade cardstock, and heat embossed with Black embossing powder.
The first time through was with the new Subtle embossing folder. This gives a nice linen look. Then I repeated the trip through the Big Shot with the new Tufted embossing folder. Sigh...LOVE! Can you see the gorgeous texture?
For the final Big Shot work, I cut the oval with the Layering Ovals Framelits. Then I placed a lot of Dimensionals on the back and centered it over my stamped panel. The grass was cut with the Lakeside Framelits.
This was then adhered to my card base, of Basic Black, using more Dimensionals.
I wonder if I need to send this to the cafe?
And there's your inspiration for this Sunday; what will you create?
