Sunday evening we went to celebrate my dad's birthday so I spent some time beforehand making him a special card. One of the stamp sets I used was Captured Moments (C1423). This was the perfect stamp because as I made my card for my dad, I thought about the 'captured moments' that we spent together over the years as I was growing up, then married and began raising children of my own.
I used several techniques on this card. The blowing tree at the bottom of the card is from the stamp set Captured Moments. I inked the stamp in Versamark (Z891) ink and then applied Clear Detail Embossing Powder (Z821). After I heat set the embossing powder, I sponged Bamboo ink over the image. To add more color, I also sponged Barn Red and then Sunset blending them into each other.
I then used the brush and re-inker technique around the edges of the card. I used paper from Olivia Level 2 paper for my accent pieces. I covered one of the white chipboard pages from the Mix and Mingle album with the Sunset B&T paper. (This chipboard page was left over from a previous project that I had done. See Let's Mix and Mingle). The verse on the front of the card is from The Present (D1436). The pattern for this card was adapted from Wishes - Cuddle Collage.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Stay tuned this week for some artwork on the upcoming November Stamp of the Month - A Little More Thanks
