Hi there, I hope you’re having a wonderful day!
Today is release day over at Ellen Hutson and the new November Essentials By Ellen release is full of fun designs by Brandi Kincaid! My card today uses the new Up In The Air stamp and die set.
I began by stamping the airship, the sign, the sign ties, and the trees in Copic-Friendly Hero Arts Intens-ified Black ink onto 80# Neenah Solar White Classic cardstock. Then I got out a few Copics and started coloring. I used Y13, Y17, and Y38 for the airship, with C1-4 for its and the sign’s grays. For the trees I used YG13, G05, and G28, with E55 and E57 for the tree trunks.
Next I stamped the crowd in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I like to stamp silhouettes in this ink because of it’s rich black color and because I can get a great solidly stamped image in just one or two stamps. Just don’t plan to Copic-color over this pigment ink, since it will smear.
I die cut out all of the elements with the coordinating dies and then set them aside to work on the background.
Using a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, I used an ink blending tool to create some puffy clouds on an A2-sized piece of Neenah. Then I used foam tape to adhere a cityscape die cut made using the Big City die.
To assemble the card, I adhered the sign and it’s little ties to the airship and then adhered the airship to the background with foam tape. Next I adhered the trees, some flush to the card, and one popped up with foam tape. Then I adhered the crowd with foam tape. Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so very much for visiting!
