Life is a Matter of Moments
The Elements of Style stamp set is truly stunning. I love creating with these images.
For this card, I inked up my main image using markers and stamping onto my Whisper White cardstock. Next I stamped my hummingbird onto a separate piece of cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink and cut the image out with scissors. I popped this up on my card front. I also at this point stamped my sentiment.
Before adhering my image onto the Peach Parfait cardstock I added my scallop trim border along one side of the Peach Parfait. Then I attached all my layers together.
My final step with this card was adding Crystal Effects to add some glaze/ shine to my flowers. Although it still looks okay, the Crystal Effects came out to fast and heavy and ended up making the flowers look a bit blurred and not as intricate as they should.
All in all I still love this card.
Thanks for stopping by.
