Hi Crafty Friends!
Today we have something special for you. Design team member, Carrie Bryant, and myself have teamed up to bring you two looks with the CTMH stamp set “Lifting Spirits”.
Here is a photo of the stamp set:
I had a lot of fun creating with this stamp set. It is one of my favorites ever since it showed up as a seasonal set last year. It is now in our annual expressions catalog for $13.95. Not only can you use the sentiments included in the set but there are other sentiments like “Happy Birthday” for example, that would look great in the banner as well.
I wanted to create a one layer card but still show some dimension as well. I chose to use alcohol markers as my main medium and used a bit of ink on the edges.
Here is my finished card
I started by stamping out the images and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the clouds, airplane, banner, and background all with alcohol markers. I used the CTMH Touch Twin markers and for extra shading used a few Copic markers as well.
Once everything was dry I took a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen and a Sakura Gelly roll clear glitter pen and added glitter accents. I used the Sakura pen where I wanted a high amount of shine (around the lines mostly) and the Wink of Stella as a filler.
For the final touch I used CTMH Liquid Glass to cover the body of the airplane to make it all shiny. Once completely dry, I mounted the panel on printed paper and then on a note card. You can kind of see the shiny on the airplane in the photo above.
I had a lot of fun making this card. I think this is one of my most favorite CTMH sets so far.
Here is a little peek at Carrie’s card, you will need to visit her blog HERE to see more photos as well as a walk-though on how she created her card.
I love the dimensional look she achieved with her card!
