It's Tuesday, which means it's time to share a project created for Topflight StampsApparently I'm still in a Valentine's Day mood and felt like match-making, so I joined the birdie on  Zinski Zini #28 Cling Mounted Stamp with the birdie on Zinski Zini #29 Cling Mounted Stamp by PaperArtsy. You've got agree that they make a cute couple! I added the hazard sign from the France Papillon #1 Cling Mounted Stamp Set because sometimes love requires caution.

*Prism Ink stays wet longer than most dye inks which makes it highly blendable. You can also emboss with it. It's inexpensive, so you can have all the colors, which will make your "must have it all" self happy. 

  1. The bird on the left (Zini #28) was stamped first onto the image panel, then onto label paper, which was fussy-cut and placed over the image to be used as a mask. 
  2. Step #1 was repeated with the second bird (Zini #29) .
  3.  The hazard sign was stamped onto the image panel to complete the scene. Then it too was stamped, fussy-cut, and used as a mask. Gosh. I'm so predictable. 
  4. The image panel was placed onto the STAY-tion.
  5. The Hearts and Dots Stencil was placed over the image panel and both were secured with magnets
  6. The ruler was placed horizontally over the image panel and the stencil.
  7. Pink Jellybean Prism* ink was brushed over the stencil,  Crystal Sparkly embossing powder was sprinkled over top, then heat embossed. You'll note that some of the dots around the hearts were uninked, I decided that was okay because perfection is overrated. 
  8. Periwinkle Prism Ink was brushed over the the image panel.
  9. The horizontal mask covering the bottom of the image was removed and grey ink was brushed over the masked image. I went with Memento ink because I wanted to use my Copics to add shadows.
  10. All the masks were lifted and the images were colored with Copic markers. Shadows were added below the images.
  11. Onyx Black VersaFine ink was used to stamp the combined sentiments from the Love Birds #155 Clear Stamp Set onto the bottom of the image panel. I used my stamping platform for this step. Please note that I should have done a better job of centering the sentiments, but that imperfection adds to the handmade charm of the card. Or that's what I'm telling myself.
  12. The image panel was adhered to an A2 card that was created with Avalanche white cardstock.
  13.  The other side of the Avalanche white cardstock was cut with the frame die-cut, which was used to frame the image panel and finish the card.
