I warned you all that I would be back with another "Love is in the air" card, didn't I?
Well here it is!
This time I pulled out the fabulous Victoria Case/Susana's Custom Art City Skyline stamp that I treated myself to last fall.
When I saw it, I immediately thought it would be very cool to add hearts, clovers, snowflakes, and Christmas trees to the facade of one of the buildings, so I did just that!
First I stamped the image onto dotted Basic Grey White Basics cardstock. Then I punched a heart, adhered the punched heart where I wanted it with temporary adhesive. I then placed the piece of cardstock containing the negative (heart-shaped hole) over the heart, lifted the heart out of the aperture, and then sponging ink through the aperture.
Then I lifted it up and colored the skyline with Copic markers. I masked the cityscape and then airbrushed the cloudy sky by using a torn piece of cardstock and the airbrush system. Airbrushing against the torn edge creates a cloudy pattern. (This technique also works with ink and chalk. Plus you can use it to create a underwater scene.)
I was feeling whimsical, so I pulled out the In the Clouds set by Taylored Expressions that my husband had gotten for me as a holiday gift. I've always loved blimps, so I was thrilled that he got this stamp set and the matching dies that go with it! Good man, he is!
I stamped the small heart blimp with the same Memento ink I used to sponge the heart, then die cut it, and adhered it to the sky with dimensional adhesives.
Since I do not have a "Love is in the Air" stamp (though I should, but haven't found one.), I used my trusty Dymo labeler to add the sentiment.
Thanks for visiting today.
I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
• Copic/Promarker Challenge at the Outlawz
• Simon Says Stamp Love is in the Air Challenge
